Aaron is joined by Brandon Peters and Peter Paras to discuss Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the Oscar-winning Ang Lee film that brought wuxia into the mainstream for America, and may, in fact, be a perfect film.

Brief Thoughts: Superman: Red Son

Image
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 review for DC Animated Universe's Superman: Red Son.

With a reflection on the individual bests of the decade lists in mind, the group goes over their thoughts on a wide array of topics including the blockbusters of the 2010s (namely the MCU), the role of animation, documentaries, independent, international, and horror films, a larger response to female filmmakers and LGBTQ representation, the future of cinema, and more. So now, if you’ve got an hour or two to kill, enjoy…

Out Now 399: The Hunt

Image
This week's Out Now with Aaron and Abe is preparing for a twisted, politically-based manhunt. Aaron and Abe are joined by Forbes’Scott Mendelson to talk about the “controversial” Blumhouse film, The Hunt. Hear what the group has to say about the supposed impact this thriller could have had on the public, and whether or not it is actually worth the audience’s time. Among the topics covered, there's a fun round of Know Everybody (4:10), Out Now Quickies™ (7:50), trailer talk for Antebellum (27:38), the main review (32:38), Games (1:02:15), and Out Now Feedback (1:09:28).
