In Episode 147 below, we review Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and share our experience at IFFBoston 2017. After last week’s audio snafu, we make good on our promise to upgrade their recording equipment, but we’re too busy talking about Batman chins to pat ourselves on the back for very long at the start of this week’s episode. In other news, both Kris and I attended IFFBoston, so we share the highlights of our festival experiences (starting at 5:20), by firing through brief reviews of movies we saw together like For Ahkeem, (at 9:42), La Barracuda (at 12:52), and Menashe (at 18:18), as well as numerous ones we saw separately. After we blast through several short reviews of other films, all three of us review Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (at 40:02), which strangely borrows heavily from Star Trek V for its plot. This sequel is clunky in the middle for its emphasis on numerous characters’ backstories, but its humor, art direction, and soundtrack are still on point.
“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.
