In Episode 159 below, we review Atomic Blonde and His Girl Friday. This week Dave recounts his unique experience living in Annie Lennox’s old apartment before the guys talk about movies. Then he leads off with a recap of His Girl Friday (5:03), a film he’d seen before, but didn’t remember a thing about, other than it being a prime example of everyone involved with it at the height of their power. Next, we cover the week’s big release, Atomic Blonde (13:55), an aggressively okay, hyper-stylized action film with Charlize Theron, where you’re either bored or you know what’s going to happen. You can totally see its big twist coming, unlike the Kevin Costner picture No Way Out, which becomes the subject of a relevant tangent at 22:25. Lastly, Dave wraps things up with his quick thoughts on Dunkirk (51:17), which he lauds for its flawless direction.
“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.
