EPISODE 32 RECAP | THIS WEEK: Your host Audy is back with his good friend and fellow cinephile, guest host Warren James. First they start of with Netflix's steaming pile of South Central/Midevil fantasy crap - Bright, directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, Fury) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Fury). Audy felt the film's mashup of Lord of The Rings fantasy and Training Day just clashed and couldn't merge both genres strongly. Warren felt the film was lazy in its world building details and its racial/social allegory ridiculous and missed the mark. Afterwards, Audy and Warren run down the "Top 14 Eye Roll Moments" in Bright and really light the movie on fire. Next, they review Steven Spielberg's (E.T., Schindler's List) The Post. Warren loved the film praising its realism and acting between its two leads Meryl Streep (Devil Wears Prada) and Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump) while Audy liked the film. He felt it was filmed with too much reverence and didn't do enough to throw the audience in the moment as the plot was progressing in better like minded films such as Spotlight and All The Presidents Men. Lastly, Warren gives his two cents and reviews Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He agreed that there were some fantastic moments in the film, but felt overall that it was not epic enough and felt more like a side mission, even though he admired Luke's portrayal by Mark Hamill in this one a lot. And the show ends with Audy asking Warren his thoughts on Star Wars with questions such as "Is Snoke really dead"? and "Should have Finn died on Crait?"DOWNLOAD HERE.
