Spoilerpiece Theatre Episode 165: IT

“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 165 below, we review It, Good Burger, and The Trip to Spain. This week we marvel at technology’s ability to be accidentally stupid before we discuss movies. Kris starts off the show with a segment of “Keepin’ Up with the Jensons” where he describes his experience watching Twin Peaks (3:06), before he reviews Good Burger (7:46), a super 90s movie starring Kenan (Thompson) and Kel (Mitchell), he found charming, funny, and very inoffensive. Next, Dave reviews The Trip to Spain (19:50), the third installment in Michael Winterbottom’s travel-themed series, which has a lot fewer impressions and very confusing ending. Then we arrive at our main event, IT (30:05), the big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s famous novel that’s creative and creepy with a great cast and special effects, even if it does have some flaws. Stay tuned after the credits for a bonus conversation from this week.
