The ol' Deadwood crew reunites to talk about Cartel Land, The Jungle Book, World's Greatest Dad, and Moonlight. We also discuss the raw deal Sally Field gets in Mrs. Doubtfire, the historical accuracy of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and discover that Jon wasn't bullied enough as a child.
The Mediocre Movie Club podcast returns after a long hiatus (goddamn Cubs), but we haven't forgotten how to argue over subjective opinions. In discussing Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Under the Skin, and The Witch, all we really agree on is that it's funny when a guy dives headfirst into a wood chipper and Atlanta's Claremont Lounge could totally have an Under the Skin-style meat sluice on one of its walls.
Bryan, Shane, and Jon get together to discuss four movies from the latest round at the MMC, praising Four Lions despite its shabby treatment of intelligent crows, and mostly shrugging about the rest. We are also extra tangent-heavy, as some of us spent their afternoon day-drinking at a PGA event.
Jon, Shane, and Drew have a cordial discussion about how much of a Jesus allegory E.T. is, and struggle to remember a movie Ice-T is in. They all essentially agree on Straight Outta Compton's flaws as a biopic while disagreeing on who steals the show. Also, why are scorpions such dicks?
A quintet of MMC'ers battle it out over how responsible Charlie Chaplin is for the Holocaust. The Paper Chase is praised for its accuracy but slandered for how unappealing the lead character is. Jon praises the best new movie he's seen in at least 3 years, but it's neither of these two shoulder shrugs. Beer is spilled, voices are raised.
Jon, Drew, and Bryan get together to discuss MMC Round 3.2 including, open parenthesis but not limited to closed parenthesis, Princess Bride, Amadeus, Bone Tomahawk, Flame and Citron, and The Wave.
