Out Now Commentary: Unbreakable (2000)

Image
This first Out Now with Aaron and Abe commentary track of 2019 brings us back to the world of comic books. With the upcoming release of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, Aaron was joined by Brandon Peters and Scott Mendelson to go over the Bruce Willis/Samuel L. Jackson two-hander, Unbreakable. The stylish but low-key drama has a lot of material worth discussing, as Shyamalan has an interesting career, and this movie has plenty of ideas and more to explore in regards to superheroes in the real world. Listen in, as the group has plenty of fun going over this major highlight of Shyamalan’s films, and why it works so well, along with what a plot twist actually is, and other fun tangents.So now, if you’ve got an hour to kill…

Weekly Recap: Vice, Stan & Ollie, Cold War & More!

Image
Vice was one of a few movies to hit theaters on Christmas, and certainly the most notable. The divisive biopic has a stunning transformation from Christian Bale but lacks more to make it more than an exercise in pointing fingers. Stan & Olliefinally hit a limited number of theaters as well and it's certainly enjoyable. You also have plenty of big movies still in wide release to check out. Plus, be sure to start checking out the various top ten lists I'm putting together. Lastly, there are a couple of great podcasts that everyone is sure to enjoy. Thanks for reading and listening!
