To start this week, we discuss Aline Brosh McKenna’s directorial debut, YOUR PLACE OR MINE (2:13). This Netflix rom-com, which divides us, stars Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher as long-distance best friends who figure out their romantic feelings for each other while she stays in his apartment in NYC for grad school and he takes care of her son back in LA. Next, we review Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s SCREAM VI (30:40), the latest installment in the SCREAM franchise. We’re also divided about this movie, but we can all agree that setting it in the Big Apple was a smart move. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Vittorio De Sica’s Italian neo-realist drama BICYCLE THIEVES in honor of its 75th anniversary this year!

RAMPAGE, TRUTH OR DARE (HORROR!), LEAN ON PETE and rapid-fire recaps of THE DEATH OF STALIN, CREEP 2, and HAPPY DEATH DAY on Episode #196
This week’s episode begins with another installment of Keepin’ Up with the Jensons (2:43), in which Kris dives into his cinematic weekend with three very different movies that he recommends nonetheless: THE DEATH OF STALIN, CREEP 2, and HAPPY DEATH DAY. Then it’s Dave with LEAN ON PETE (16:51), a very well made sad-animal-sad-people saga about a runaway teen with nothing but his horse. Then it’s back to Kris with RAMPAGE (27:40), another movie about the bond between beast and man, this time between a monster gorilla and The Rock as they battle obstinate military men, evil corporations, and the other monsters they produced. It’s as good as this movie can conceivably be, and really, what else can you ask for? Closing out this episode is TRUTH OR DARE (43:20), yet another risky endeavor from Blumhouse that capitalizes on a clever story and terrific cast to make its flaws of secondary concern so the audience can just focus on having a good time.
