This week Dave can’t make it, so Dede Crimmins, the Alec Baldwin of Spoilerpiece, fills in! After discussing cats on Zoom, we dive into this week’s movies. First up is Shudder’s A NIGHTMARE WAKES (3:25), Nora Unkel’s period horror flick which follows Mary Shelley as she writes Frankenstein. Next, we review THE WANTING MARE (13:00), Nicholas Ashe Bateman’s surreal fantasy about dreams, longing, and yes, a mare. Then it’s Netflix’s MALCOLM & MARIE (26:43), Sam Levinson’s movie starring Zendaya and John David Washington about a couple’s volatile night of arguments. Finally, we cover SAINT MAUD (46:38), Rose Glass’s outstanding horror film about a pious nurse (Morfydd Clark) who becomes unhealthily obsessed with trying to save her patient’s soul. And on this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we discuss James Cameron’s 1992 film TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY.
A whole lot of show for you this week! Kicking things off is Dave with his recaps of the forgettable THE BABYSITTER (3:31), the almost-good THE LITTLE HOURS (10:04), and fantastically cheesy Spaghetti Western MY NAME IS NOBODY (14:11). Then Kris and Dave recount their experience at Coolidge Corner Theatre’s Keanu-thon (19:42), six Keanu Reeves movies from midnight to noon, ranging from classics (POINT BREAK, SPEED), ’90s time capsules (BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY, JOHNNY MNEMONIC), art house trips (A SCANNER DARKLY), and unexpected triumphs (CONSTANTINE). Closing out the episode, all three hosts give an overall solid recommendation for SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME (43:10).
