MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT, FOOLS RUSH IN, NOTTING HILL, SEX, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE, and BEAUTIFUL GIRLS on Episode #211

Henry Cavill, Tom Cruise, and Rebecca Ferguson looking exhausted, recover from a bathroom fight scene in MISSION: Impossible - Fallout.

Henry Cavill, Tom Cruise, and Rebecca Ferguson after one helluvah bathroom fight scene in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT

This week, Dave kicks things off with a palate cleansing Riedel’s Recaps after last week’s weedfest: the overlong yet charming NOTTING HILL (6:57), the award-winning sex, lies, and videotape (12:29), and the par creepy, part interesting, thoroughly ’90s BEAUTIFUL GIRLS (13:32). Next, Evan revisits romantic comedy, FOOLS RUSH IN (20:55) starring the then-newly famous Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry, which boasts some unexpected layers in its treatment of race, culture, and romantic independence. Then it’s on to the main event, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT (26:05). Full of terrific action but weighed down by twist after twist after twist, it’s still well worth your time.

DON’T BREATHE, INDIGNATION, THE WITNESS, and MAN UP on Episode #111

Dylan Minnette and Jane Levy in DON'T BREATHE

Kris’s reaction after being disgusted by DON’T BREATHE.

This week Kris reveals what he would do if he had precognitive powers like Christopher Walken in THE DEAD ZONE. After that, he reviews DON’T BREATHE (at 3:28), a horror movie that he was really into for an hour until it disgusted him. Next, Evan explains the intellectually and emotionally engaging documentary THE WITNESS (at 27:21) opening at the Regent Theatre, which follows Kitty Genovese’s brother Bill on a decade long journey to investigate her murder. Then Dave lightens things up by spoilerpiecing MAN UP (at 36:06), a charming, if not great romantic comedy where Simon Pegg plays vulnerable and Lake Bell does a convincing British accent. Finally, Evan concludes with INDIGNATION, a 1950s drama that impressed him with its patient camerawork and pleasantly surprised him by going some unexpected places. His description provokes strong reactions from Dave and Kris, who want to see it, but are convinced they’ll either love it or hate it.
