Denzel Washington and Rami Malek team up in THE LITTLE THINGS
This week we offer some thoughts on whipped cream before we get to the movies. First, Megan and Evan review Shudder’s Indonesian gory horror film THE QUEEN OF BLACK MAGIC (3:29), about three friends and their families visiting the orphanage where they grew up, directed by Kimo Stamboel. Next, everyone discusses SUPERNOVA (17:05), Harry Macqueen’s heartbreaking queer road trip film where Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth play a gay couple grappling with the fact that one of them has dementia. Then it’s on to THE LITTLE THINGS (37:48), John Lee Hancock’s 90s-set neo-noir crime drama starring Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto about detectives searching for a serial killer that’s dropping on HBO Max. And on our Patreon exclusive audio this week we discuss RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, a movie two of us have loved since childhood.

Rami Malek shines as Freddie Mercury in the biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
This week special guest and fellow BOFCA member Megan Kearns returns to join Kris and Evan on the show. She starts off by reviewing HOLD THE DARK, Jeremy Saulnier’s latest film about a man searching for a couple’s son in the Alaskan wilderness, which sadly doesn’t pack the same punch as his previous movies GREEN ROOM and BLUE RUIN. Next, Kris and Evan travel back in time to their youth for Jonah Hill’s directorial debut MID90s, a coming-of-age movie with some really strong elements like its eclectic music and camaraderie between its cast of skateboard teens that make it good, but some shortcomings that prevent it from being great. Lastly, all three of them review BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (31:21), the long-awaited Freddie Mercury biopic, which attempts to do the late Queen frontman’s life justice and mostly succeeds.

Something really gross is about to happen in ALIEN: COVENANT.
After 148 episodes, Evan suddenly airs his distaste for poetry, and in explaining his rationale, he unwittingly realizes the one exception to his rule. Then it’s onward to the week’s movies. First, Dave and Kris go deep on ALIEN: COVENANT (at 6:17), a film that takes the worst ideas of its predecessor PROMETHEUS, and capitalizes on them, by following a group of characters that are morons. Next, Evan covers the Israeli movie THE WEDDING PLAN (at 41:32), where a bride dumped a month before her wedding decides to go ahead with the ceremony anyway?the kind of tale that’s worth watching for its unique story, even though it’s a little slow and long. Evan and Kris close with BUSTER’S MAL HEART (at 53:03), a weird, crazy flick starring MR. ROBOT’s Rami Malek, and a charismatic conspiracy theorist played by DJ Qualls, that has the exact sense of irony that Kris appreciates.
