Review #52: Lego Ninjago and Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Two new movies came out this weekend. One is a big sequel; the other is a franchise spinoff. I felt somewhat similarly about both of them.

RetroReview #4: Beauty and the Beast (1991)

This animated classic was back in theaters and what better time to talk about it given the live action film came out earlier this year?

Reviews 4: Mother!, American Assassin, 9/11, Home Again

Another cluster of reviews for today’s episode. Four more recent releases, including this past weekend’s wide openings.

Edit: It appears the audio for this episode cuts out periodically. The issue doesn’t look like it can be resolved. I apologize as I only just noticed this issue. I doubt I can remember enough of what I was talking about to fill in all of the gaps, but if I find the time this weekend, I might edit the audio and fill in where I can enough to make the episode listenable, at the very least. I’m sorry!

Reviews #3: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Laser Mission

Two movies that someone somewhere considered to be “Sci Fi Classics,” including a film that involves a robotic trump card defeated by the way someone refers to it and a film that isn’t even science fiction.

Review #51: It

It’s here, It’s big, It’s scary, and It’s going to do gangbusters at the box office. Previews on Thursday were 13.5 million, a record for horror, September, R-rated films, and Stephen King. Here’s my review.

Lady Macbeth: 27:00

Annabelle: Creation: 41:07

Tulip Fever: 57:29
