In Episode 141 below, we review Life and Wilson. This week we attempt to answer the age old question, “Who’s the luckiest person in show business?” with mixed results. Each of us has some catching up to do on movies that we’ve seen, so we do some quick recaps (starting at 4:26) before we dive into this week’s movies. Kris shares short takes on Beauty and the Beast and Personal Shopper, prior to my brief thoughts on 10 Cloverfield Lane, and Dave revealing what he took away from the rest of OJ: Made in America. After that Kris and I discuss Wilson (at 19:32), a film based on a Daniel Clowes graphic novel, where Woody Harrelson plays a guy walking through life telling everyone bullshit and acting like an asshole. Then all of us discuss the sci-fi horror movie Life (at 41:11) which has great actors giving mediocre performances. We compare various parts to 2001: A Space Odyssey, Little Shop of Horrors, and Alien, however we describe why it gets dumber the more you think about it.
“Spoilerpiece Theatre” is a weekly movie podcast where I talk about new releases with fellow BOFCA critics Dave Riedel and Kris Jenson. We don’t give a shit about spoilers. We just want to talk about the movies.
