In Episode 144 below, we review The Fate of the Furious and Your Name. It’s been a while since we have done some singing, so we decide to make up for it at the start of the episode. There are just two films on their docket this week—one is animated, and one live action that’s also an action movie. First, I review Your Name (at 4:00), a touching anime tale about two teenagers who mysteriously start swapping bodies. Dave tries to compare it to other body-swapping films like Vice Versa and Dream a Little Dream with moderate success, while Kris realizes he’s into it for reasons he doesn’t fully understand. Then all three of us set our sights on The Fate of the Furious (at 20:04), a loud action movie that’s almost unbelievable even by franchise standards, but boy is it still fun to watch, because it surprised us with some of its new tricks with cars.
“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.
