Episode #264 – “A Star Is Born”

A Star Is Born

This week we’re tackling one of the most anticipated films of the year! That’s right, I’m talking about Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, “A Star Is Born!” It brings together our favorite(?) member of the Wolf Pack with pop queen Lady Gaga for a tale as old as time. The question is, has that tale gotten a bit stale? With incredible music and stunning performances, “A Star Is Born” is shooting to the top of many “Best of 2018” spots…but will it make ours? Tune in to find out!

Episode #263 – “A Simple Favor”

A Simple Favor

This week we’re tuning in for a film that’s been called “Hitchcockian” in its nature. Does director Paul Feig actually pull that off in his latest movie, “A Simple Favor?” Well, he DOES follow in Hitch’s footsteps by casting a stunning blonde in the lead, but is Blake Lively enough to make this seemingly high-budget Lifetime movie into something more? Tune in to find out!

SearchingThree weeks in a row! This is the third week running that we have reviewed a film with an Asian lead. How’s that for a change?

I won’t spoil too much, but once you listen to us talk about this creative film, you’ll want to head out to your nearest cinema. “Searching”, with John Cho, is all we talk about this week, so strap in for an in-depth review!

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

Another week, another rom-com? Why not! We’re going from “Crazy Rich Asians” to Netflix’s surprise summer hit, “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”. It’s like all those high school films about young love from the 80s and 90s rolled into one and released on your nearest streaming service. Was this movie too full of stuffy nostalgia or does it carve a path of its own? Tune in as we go in-depth! We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including¬†“The Sinner” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”, before moving on to talk about our favorite films of the summer. Tune in!

Episode #260 – “Crazy Rich Asians”

Crazy Rich Asians

We’re back with our review of one of the most highly-anticipated films of the summer! But there’s not an action scene or superhero in sight with this movie…believe it or not, we’ve got a rom-com on our hands. “Crazy Rich Asians” is being celebrated because of the step forward it represents for Asian actors on screen. Honestly, that’s probably most of the headlines you’ve read about this movie, but what about *the actual movie*? How good is it really? We’re joined by friend-of-the-show Diana Baik as we go in-depth on “Crazy Rich Asians”!

Episode #259 – “The Meg”

The Meg

It’s shark week here at Two Guys, One Movie! Jason Statham brings us “The Meg”, a movie all about a really, really big shark. But is this shark movie more “Deep Blue Sea” than “Jaws”? We go in-depth (probably too in-depth for a film like this) to find out! And because this movie is so ridiculous, we said ‘screw it’ and decided on no separate spoiler section. So be warned!

Episode #258 – “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”

Mission Impossible Fallout

It’s here, it’s here! “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” has hit theaters and our faces have been blown off. Tom Cruise has done it again, defying death for the enjoyment of complete strangers. Obviously we fucking loved this movie…but is it actually¬†good beyond the stunts? We break it all down. We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Sex and the City” and “Mamma Mia Here We Go Again”, before moving on to talk about the dumpster fire that is MoviePass right now. Tune in!

Episode #257 – “Skyscraper”

Skyscraper

No sequels this week! No, this time around we’re tackling the latest film from the megastar that is Dwayne Johnson. Does this generic-looking “Die Hard” ripoff actually have what it takes to stand on its own? Are we charmed (as usual) by the charisma of The Rock? Those questions and many more are answered (and many more are asked, actually) in this week’s episode! We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Who Is America” and “Bob’s Burgers” before moving on to discuss the intense battle between MoviePass and AMC. Tune in!

Both sequels, but they couldn’t be more different if they tried. One of them features one of the most disturbing opening scenes in recent years and the other is “Ant-Man and the Wasp”!

Episode #255 – “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom

When “Jurassic World” ended, I thought to myself, “Huh…so where do they go now?” The logical answer is laid out to us in this week’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”, but YET AGAIN I am left asking that same question. Where the hell does this series go after the insane ending of the latest film?? Don’t know what I’m talking about? Don’t worry, we won’t spoil it in our main review but definitely hold onto your butts when you get around to seeing the movie. And for those of you who HAVE seen “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” (and there’s a lot of you), you know what I’m talking about. And we go in-depth on just where this franchise will go in 2021’s followup film. Besides our review of the newest “Jurassic World” film, we also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” and “Annihilation”. Tune in!
