Spoilerpiece Theatre Episode 164: I DO…UNTIL I DON’T

“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 #164 below, we review Crown Heights, I Do…Until I Don’t, Real Genius, and The Friends of Eddie Coyle. This week we explore ideas for new expletives that are safe to use around children before we dig into the movies. Since it’s the end of August, there aren’t as many to discuss, although we do have a couple of recaps and two new releases, as well as some fun tangents in between. First, Dave recaps The Friends of Eddie Coyle (3:32), a Boston gangster movie from the 70s with Robert Mitchum that was actually shot in the city. Following a tangent on another Boston movie, The Departed, I Crewind everyone to the 80s with Real Genius (15:08), a cute comedy that causes us to wish Val Kilmer could be our college roommate too. Then all three of us review I Do…Until I Don’t (24:36), the disappointing sophomore effort by Lake Bell, which has some sweet moments, and some misguided ideas about documentaries. Lastly, Dave and I spoilerpiece CROWN HEIGHTS (43:09), a wrongful conviction film that showcases great performances and makes excellent points about the American criminal justice system, but feels much longer than it should due to its shifting perspectives.
