ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP, MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL, LITTLE MONSTERS, THE LIGHTHOUSE, and more on Episode #275

Abigail Breslin, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Jesse Eisenberg hold torches while looking up in Zombieland: Double Tap
Been there, tapped that, but it’s good seeing everyone again in ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP.

This week it’s all about the joys of vegan dairy products before a zombie-heavy meal. First Megan describes LITTLE MONSTERS (2:36), a charming zombie flick that deftly balances cuteness with dark humor. Then she reviews THE LIGHTHOUSE (11:10), an atmospheric period piece with surprising queer undertones. Next, Evan and Dave cover GARY GULMAN: THE GREAT DEPRESH (16:47), a hilarious HBO comedy special that also bravely discusses mental health. Megan and Evan follow that up with EL CAMINO: A BREAKING BAD MOVIE (26:28), a shockingly captivating and tense film based on the AMC show. After that Dave and Megan gripe about the incredibly disappointing MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL (38:55). To wrap up, it’s back to the undead for ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP, a medium funny sequel that has opinions split between our fair co-hosts.

THE WITCH, BABES IN TOYLAND, and Listener Questions on Episode #84

The Witch

Watch out for Black Philip the goat in THE WITCH

This week’s episode starts out with a conversation about Prince, where Kris gets real life events spoilerpieced. Then after a very brief review of BABES IN TOYLAND, a Janet Jackson tangent, and singing, the guys address some listener questions that arrived via voicemail and email. Along the way, they stumble into tangents about FORREST GUMP, Vin Diesel, and The Brattle Theatre’s owl before they move on to the main event: their review of THE WITCH. All three love its ratcheting sense of dread and how it becomes terrifying, bordering on horrifying in its final act. Plus early, Dave admits that there’s a moment in it that makes him feel very uncomfortable as a new dad. Following some differentiation between rabbits and hares, and talk of famous last words in the movie, they all laud THE WITCH for its good direction, great recreation of its time period, and excellent detail. In fact, they spend so much time talking about it, that they don’t get a chance to explore Tim Burton’s BATMAN, which was also on the agenda. Alas, they’ll just have to review it in Episode 85, so be sure to watch it in advance as prep.
