Episode 107 - The Hunt

This week, we watch Mads Mikkelsen earn his Cannes film festival award for his portrayal of a school teacher who has to deal with false accusations made by a young student of his, and the fall out from the towns population who won’t listen to anything they don’t want to hear. Not to be viewed when you want to be in a good mood. The Hunt (2012), directed by Thomas Vinterberg.

BONUS EPISODE - It: Chapter 2

27 years later and Pennywise is back. The second and final act of the It series, this film casts some legitimate movie stars as the older versions of the kids from Chapter 1, and is also tasked with bringing this epic tale to a close - An ending that the readers of the book (as well as characters in this movie) will tell you isn’t very good. The question people will be talking about for years to come is: does this movie close the It saga better than Stephen King’s own words did? It: Chapter 2 (2019), directed by Andy Muschietti.

Episode 134 - Blade Runner

This week, we watch what some consider the best science fiction film in history. The world shown on screen set a standard for the genre, and its influence can be seen in nearly every sci-fi film since its release. With five official cuts and a wealth of lore behind the making, this film begs to be rewatched and pondered over. The outstanding visuals just make it that much more enjoyable. Blade Runner (1982), directed by Ridley Scott.
