Spoilerpiece Theatre Episode 161: ANNABELLE CREATION

“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.

In Episode 161 below, we review Annabelle: Creation, Good Time, Wind River, Keeping up with the Joneses, and more. Longtime friend of the show Dede Crimmins joins us this week to discuss what we know about the band Foghat. We have so many movies to talk about that we have a hard time figuring out where to begin. Dave goes first with lightning fast “Riedel’s Recaps” of Bad Company (6:25), Menashe (7:55), and The Big Sick (11:44), before Dede shares her top pics from this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival: My Friend Dahmer (14:43), Mohawk (18:15), and Lowlife (19:54). Then she, Dave, and Kris spoilerpiece Annabelle: Creation (24:15), which is so creepy that Kris watched some scenes through his fingers. Next, Dave gives his one-minute take on Good Time (49:41), a movie with Robert Pattinson making the best bad decisions, that he says is one of the best he’s ever seen. Following that, I review Keeping up with the Joneses (51:49), a cute spy comedy that I’m surprised more people haven’t seen. Finally, Dave and Kris conclude with Wind River (1:00:17), a procedural about a murder on an Indian reservation that they agree is one of the best films of this year.
