Weekly Recap: Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Ferdinand, Molly's Game & More!


Star Wars: The Last Jedi has finally arrived and it is amazing. A fantastic entry in the ongoing saga with Rian Johnson delivering in spades. Also out this week, Ferdinand, the decent animated story of a non-violent bull. I also have a new review up for the upcoming Molly's Game from writer/director Aaron Sorkin. Being a bit sick, I didn't have time to cover some of the other upcoming releases, but there is plenty in theaters to see, as evidenced by the number of reviews below. Also out - several new home releases worth seeking out. Plus, a review for the lackluster mid-season finale of The Walking Dead. Lastly, two new podcast episodes to listen to. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(A fantastic Star Wars movie, the best in years)

(Decent animated effort)

Spreading Wider:

(A terrific performance in a terrific film)

(A love story and an adult fairy tale. One of the year's bests)

(Hilarious)

Coming Soon:

(Aaron Sorkin delivers a great script and fairly good direction)

Out Now 310: The Disaster Artist & The Shape of Water


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe goes over failure-turned-success and a romance. Aaron and Abe are joined by Todd Gilchrist and Luke Y. Thompson to discuss The Disaster Artist and The Shape of Water. Both are passion projects from directors who have some key influences from particular filmmakers, making for an interesting pairing. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (4:27), some Out Now Quickies™ (8:32), Trailer Talk for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (24:48), the main reviews (36:37) and (1:15:40), and Out Now Feedback (1:43:55). We then wrap things up (2:10:58) and end on some bloopers (2:22:41), following this week’s closeout song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Out Now Commentary: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)


It’s another December featuring a new Star Wars movie, so that means another Out Now with Aaron and Abe Star Wars commentary track. This time Aaron is joined by Brandon Peters, Scott Mendelson and Yancy Berns for a discussion of The Empire Strikes Back. This is a packed commentary that goes over the excellent middle chapter of the world’s most famous saga by way of its placement in history, the impact it had, the status of the stars and filmmakers involved. There’s more as well, such as the current state of blockbusters, debates over the current crop of Star Wars films and plenty of other fun. This is the sort of commentary where the group could easily do it again and have a whole new discussion, so let the guys know if they should do this again because it’s never not fun talking Star Wars.

So now, if you’ve got an hour to kill…

Weekly Recap: I, Tonya, The Post, Phantom Thread & More!


Just one week left until Star Wars, but in the meantime, I have a bunch of reviews for upcoming films and films currently in limited release, such as I, Tonya, a wonderful dark comedy that tells the story of Tonya Harding. I also have thoughts on the upcoming releases from Spielberg and P.T. Anderson, so enjoy those. New releases at home are here as well, including a great addition to The Criterion Collection. TV reviews of course, plus a look at Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Lastly, another great podcast episode to listen in to. Enjoy!

In Theaters:

(A terrifically entertaining dark comedy/biopic)

(A wonderful and emotional animated film)

Spreading Wider:

(A love story and an adult fairy tale. One of the year's bests)

(Hilarious)

Coming Soon:

(Spielberg delivers a powerful message and another great movie)

(Daniel Day-Lewis' final film?)

How About That Trailer? - Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom



After a week of teases, the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is here, and it has aimed to impress. Going bigger and darker, this is the sort of thing you'd expect to see from a sequel to one of the biggest films of all time. Fortunately, I'm on board for more adventures based on the creations spearheaded by John Hammond. Take a look at the trailer above and then come back to read some more thoughts on this upcoming summer blockbuster.

I'd say that was pretty great as far as setting up as a reason for another Jurassic film to exist and finding ways to throw new visual ideas into the mix. It may be a lost cause, but I was holding out hope for a film that was entirely set in a courtroom and concerned the fight against those responsible for the events of the previous movie. Regardless, rescuing dinosaurs from a volcano sounds good enough as well.

Out Now 309: Lady Bird & Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe is flying away to a place of justice. Aaron and Abe are joined by Jordan Rath and Kenny Miles to discuss Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. These two acclaimed films are featured in enough locations at this point, so the guys can only hope you check them out, as well as here their takes on them, along with other recent releases. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (5:19), some Out Now Quickies™ (11:10), Trailer Talk for Avengers: Infinity War (20:12), the main reviews (30:25) and (55:51), and Out Now Feedback (1:26:50). We then wrap things up (2:08:30) and end on some bloopers (2:24:18), following this week’s closeout song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Brief Thoughts: The Breadwinner


I really enjoy putting my reviews together.  I honestly wish I could delve deeper into certain movies, but alas, I get incredibly busy and can sometimes only deal with movies to a briefer extent than I would prefer.  This is why I write these occasional "Brief Thoughts" posts on movies I have seen, as I want to at least offer some of my own perspective on them.  They may not be as polished, but I can at least get my opinions out there. This edition of "Brief Thoughts" features a mini-review of the independent animated drama The Breadwinner.

Weekly Recap: The Shape of Water, The Disaster Artist, Wonder Wheel & More!


We are now heavy into awards season and there are plenty of great films out. A few open in limited release this week. Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water and James Franco's The Disaster Artist are sure to satisfy. Woody Allen's latest is also here. Three Billboards spreads wide this week. At home, I have a few things up, including a review of Le Samourai, one of the coolest films of all time. There's also our great Coco podcast, which is a good listen. And I have a new trailer post going into what to expect from Avengers: Infinity War. Enjoy!

(A love story and an adult fairy tale. One of the year's bests)

(Woody Allen's latest)

(Hilarious)

(An angry, dark comedy.)

(A nice holiday-themed film)

How About That Trailer? - Avengers: Infinity War




In a year that's given us several (mostly terrific) superhero movies, it would seem unlikely that many wouldn't be ready for one that feels like the ultimate event for these sorts of films. In a different world, I would have been inclined to say Justice League was that event, but my mixed-positive reaction aside, it just didn't work out that way. This is where Avengers: Infinity War comes in. Enjoy the trailer above, and I'll throw in some more thoughts below.

Out Now 308: Coco


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe is the celebration of a lifetime. Aaron is joined by Alan Aguilera, Mark Hobin and David Yeh to talk Disney Pixar’s Coco. This animated feature focused on Mexican culture has already inspired many emotionally-charged thoughts, but the group will do what they can to delve even further into the film and more. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (2:33), some Out Now Quickies™ (4:46), Trailer Talk for Incredibles 2 (26:12), discussion of the Frozen short film (36:12), the main review (44:29), Out Now Feedback (1:15:45) and Games (1:22:36). We then wrap things up (1:31:51) and end on some Justice League-focused bloopers (1:44:41), following this week’s closeout song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…
