Weekly Recap: The Snowman, Killing of a Sacred Deer, Wonderstruck & More!


This week presents several new wide-release films that have generated little interest among many. The Snowman, Geostorm, Only The Brave and others are all out with little prospects in terms of box office potential and critical regard (though Only The Brave has average reviews overall). Some smaller releases are more notable, as The Killing of a Sacred Deer and Wonderstruck do deliver. Meanwhile, Spider-Man has swung his way home while my early review of Thor: Ragnarok should get plenty of folks excited. And as usual, do enjoy the podcast released this week, as there is plenty to take in with those as always. Thanks for reading and listening!

In Theaters Now:


(Off-kilter, thrilling and darkly funny)

Geostorm - seeing the film on Friday and it will surely be terribly entertaining

(A great adventure for kids and adults)

(The best Thor movie yet)

Out Now 302: The Foreigner (and Friends)


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe finds Jackie Chan going into old man action territory. Aaron is joined by Zaki Hasan and Alan Aguilera to talk The Foreigner, which pits Chan again Pierce Brosnan in this revenge thriller. There’s also plenty of other discussion, as the show goes for a looser tone this week. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (2:55), a lengthier Out Now Quickies™ (5:40), the main review (23:09), Games (42:00), Trailer Talk for New Mutants and more (49:30), and Out Now Feedback (1:11:17). We then wrap things up (1:28:34) and end on some bloopers (1:42:37), following this week’s closeout song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Weekly Recap: The Foreigner, Marshall, Happy Death Day & More!


Following the major release (and underperformance) of Blade Runner 2049, the rest of October feels a bit more scattered. Still, The Foreigner and Happy Death Day should satisfy audiences who know what they are looking for. Also out is Marshall, which does plenty thanks to some solid performances. I also have some reviews from the San Diego Film Festival, which includes one of the best films of the year. Be sure to check out my reviews for some of the new home releases as well, including the great Baby Driver and Frank Capra's Lost Horizon. Lastly, lots of great podcast material to listen to once again. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(Slick horror, but nothing special)


(One of the best films of the year)

2017 Horror Special 2 - Director Spotlight on George A. Romero and Tobe Hooper


Week two of this year’s horror specials finds Out Now with Aaron and Abe spending time focusing on the legacies of two horror filmmaker icons who passed away this year. Both George A. Romero and Tobe Hooper became huge influencers for many filmmakers and films to come, what with the creation of the modern conception of a zombie and the cinematic eye that made The Texas Chain Saw Massacre stand out amongst other horror films. Aaron is joined by Brandon Peters and Jimmy O to discuss both filmmakers and delve into their long careers in the industry (Hooper begins at 58:49). Join in to hear about their films, both the most notable and more obscure. There’s a lot to go through.

Weekly Recap: Blade Runner 2049, Mountain Between Us & More!


35 years ago, Blade Runner presented an influential sci-fi world in terms of visuals, asked big questions and flopped in theaters. Now a big question is whether or not Blade Runner 2049 will be embraced by audiences of today. I certainly liked it, but curiosity remains. Additionally, The Mountain Between Us hits theaters in a rather low-key way, while other films get their notice as well. Some new release our out there too, including the pretty solid Cult of Chucky. I have reviews for all, but most importantly, be sure to check out the ridiculous amount of podcast content released from Out Now with Aaron and Abe this week. It's all great stuff. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(Visually astounding and thematically rich)

(Decent survival story, meh romance)

(See Harry Dean Stanton be great for the last time)

(Thurgood Marshall gets a neat legal drama)
