Stop me if you’ve heard this one before….The Predator, the Nun and White Boy Rick walk into a bar…ah, you have? I see. Then you know the punchline is that these are three of the new films in theatres this week.
Even The Nun is a week late for us, as Cory captured the ghostly phenom last night. First, he reviews the latest entry in the Predator series, appropriately named…..The Predator. This film is directed by Shane Black and features Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Boyd Holbrook and Sterling K. Brown, as well as Jacob Tremblay, Thomas Jane and Keegan-Michael Key. Phew, what a cast.
After those two films, we move up to Detroit in the 1980s and breakout star Richie Merritt in White Boy Rick, which details life growing up in the inner city as drugs and violence encroach on young man’s journey. His father is played by Matthew McConaughey, still trying to prove to us the Oscar wasn’t a fluke.
Beyond that, Cory listens to Tristan discuss mumblecore indie Duck Butter, featuring Alia Shawkat and Laia Costa, as well as his first time witnessing the fantasy epic Labyrinth, which stars David Bowie in his most iconic role alongside a nubile Jennifer Connelly. For those that lamented The Happytime Murders, it’s time to take a step back and revisit his father’s classic.
All this, and well….just take a listen, remembering to comment responsibly:
