GOD’S COUNTRY, SEE HOW THEY RUN, and PEARL on Episode #427

Thandiwe Newton stands in front of a pile of chopped wood looking off into the distance in the movie God's CountryDave starts the show by reviewing Ti West’s PEARL (2:09), a prequel to his horror film X. It also stars Mia Goth, but is surprisingly different, in a good way. Next, we all discuss Tom George’s 1950s whodunnit SEE HOW THEY RUN (11:01), a disappointing meta send-up to Agatha Christie that at least has fun performances by its leads Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan. Then we cover the Julian Higgins slow-burn thriller GOD’S COUNTRY (23:35), a layered, emotionally complex film about a professor (Thandiwe Newton) caught in an escalating battle with hunters who trespass on her property. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Steven Spielberg’s 1977 sci-fi film CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND

GLASS, LAST LAUGH, and Riedelpiece previews on Episode #236!

Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, and Samuel L. Jackson in M. Night Shyamalan’s GLASS.

This week, Dave fills us in on the two pieces that kept him busy last week: what he’s most looking forward to in 2019, and a look at some Oscar-nominated performance in films that premiered at Sundance. Next, Dave and Evan tell us about the woefully unfunny and directionless LAST LAUGH (9:45). Wrapping things up is Evan and Kris with GLASS (26:50), which is not a total waste but fails to effectively channel what was good about either of its predecessors, UNBREAKABLE and SPLIT.
