Spoilerpiece Theatre Episode 72: CREED, THE GOOD DINOSAUR, and PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

“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 72 below, our Thanksgiving episode, we review Creed, The Good Dinosaur, Planes, Trains & Automobiles. We couldn’t help but launch into a short riff about the beauty of John Hughes’ Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. It’s that time of year, and it’s also funny to hear Steve Martin say, “I do not play with my balls.” Then Kris and I get into The Good Dinosaur, which, isn’t a good movie. And finally, Kris spoilerpieces the hell out of Creed, the new Rocky movie that is apparently better than it has any right to be. There’s also a Henry update and a brief installment of “Riedel’s Recaps.” We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and that they didn’t eat themselves sick!
