Rank #18: HBO's Chernobyl amazes, Booksmart nails it

Podcast cover
Read more

Hi there. Last week I promised a review of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Turns out, I lied. I didn't go see Godzilla this week. Or, Godillza as I once put up on a sign when I worked at Taco Bell as a teenager. I was stupid. Instead, I started watching the HBO miniseries Chernobyl, and it is AMAZING. Jeff saw the new movie Booksmart, and he'll tell you why he loved it. I'll also tell you about another show I started watching. Started, and stopped. Because it sucks. I also finally got around to watching a sequel to a movie I'd never watched, then I immediately watched the original. And, something stupid happened to me during John Wick Chapter 3. - Brett

Rank #20: April Movie Preview! Jeff offers second take on "Us"

Podcast cover
Read more

Hi there! April used to be kind of a crappy month at the movies before the Summer season started in May, but this year, much like last year, it will be home to the biggest opening movie of all time! ALSO A CORRECTION TO PASS ALONG: We indicate during the show that "The Best of Enemies" opens this weekend, on April 5th, which is not true. At least, not in Canada. It opens on April 5th in the U.S. Sadly, by the time we realized the mistake, it was too late and too messy to edit the show in a timely fashion. Meanwhile, Jeff went to see Jordan Peele's "Us". AND, The Walking Dead season 8 finale, ended up kinda being The Walking Meh'd. - Brett
