Spoilerpiece Theatre Episode 80: DIRTY GRANDPA, GOODNIGHT MOMMY, 45 YEARS, and ROAR

“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 80 below, we review Dirty Grandpa, Goodnight Mommy, 45 Years, and Roar. Dave has a new gig that he’s excited to finally share. After he talks a little about it, Kris and I spoil the shit out of Goodnight Mommy, a creepy film that uses space effectively to keep you on edge. Its intense torture scenes made me feel like I had to watch something more uplifting when he was done though. Sticking with unsettling movies, Kris describes Roar, which he describes as “a thing of pure insanity.” This plot light picture has lots of cuts and lots of big cats. Although sadly, many cast and crew members were seriously injured in the process of making it. Dave changes the episode’s pace by discussing 45 Years, a very English, but very good film with Charlotte Rampling about a long marriage that suddenly finds itself on the rocks. Lastly, I close things up by talking about Dirty Grandpa, a fucking awful movie that mainly just presents situations for Robert De Niro to be vulgar for no real reason. At least there’s good singing in this episode courtesy of Dave.
