To kick things off, Dave offers his brief take on Cary Joji Fukunaga’s NO TIME TO DIE (2:30), Daniel Craig’s satisfying final outing as James Bond. Next, we all review BINGO HELL (11:55), Gigi Saul Guerrero’s brief, yet heavy-handed horror comedy that’s part of Amazon’s 2021 WELCOME TO THE BLUMHOUSE series. After that we cover Antoine Fuqua’s THE GUILTY (22:41), a frustrating and problematic thriller about a 911 operator played effectively by Jake Gyllenhaal. Finally, we dig into THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK (40:49), Alan Taylor’s extremely disappointing Sopranos prequel about the rise of Tony Soprano. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we have a blast discussing Joe Cornish’s 2011 sci-fi comedy ATTACK THE BLOCK, starring John Boyega and Jodie Whittaker.
Guest Charlie Nash returns for this week’s show! The first films on the docket are BLACK BOX (3:36), a sci-fi film about a man suffering from amnesia undergoing a new treatment, and THE LIE (12:56), a thriller about two parents protecting their daughter; two horrorish flicks from Amazon’s Welcome to the Blumhouse series, which have varying success for each co-host. Next, everyone discusses the Netflix adaptation of the seminal queer play THE BOYS IN THE BAND (26:31), about gay friends at a birthday party in 1968 NYC, by digging into its differences from the original, and debating whether its story is still vital. Then, they delve deep into POSSESSOR UNCUT (52:04), Brandon Cronenberg’s graphic, psychological sci-fi horror. On this week’s Patreon bonus audio, we discuss KINDERGARTEN COP, which Charlie has never seen. Hilarity ensues.
