In Episode 166 below, we talk about Bright Lights, Big City, The Hunt for Red October, Memino, Rebel in the Rye, The Women’s Balcony, and American Assassin. We have a bumper crop of movies on this week’s show (have we used that description before?)! First, it’s a bout of “Riedel’s Recaps,” with James Bridges’ Bright Lights, Big City (3:57) and John McTiernan’s The Hunt for Red October (10:03). Then we’re KEEPING UP WITH THE JENSON’s and his take on Memino (14:32) (not to be confused with Memento or former Boston mayor Tom Menino). I take one for the team and watch Rebel in the Rye, which is NOT about Rebel Wilson, but J.D. Salinger (27:00). Then I cover The Women’s Balcony (36:02), an Israeli film that I missed at the Boston Jewish Film Festival but am making up for it now. Lastly, it’s American Assassin (42:33), which Kris and Dave saw together against their better judgment (I took a pass – yay me).
“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.
