No new movies this week… but we still have a lot to talk about with pay-per-view movies and TV! First, I am getting John caught up on some summer movies that I already saw, so we start with The Spy Who Dumped Me and TAG. John gives his input on these movies. And no real surprise, he really enjoyed them both!
Next, I saw Searching and RBG and I give my thoughts on both. Searching is one of the best mystery movies I have seen in a while and I loved the twists and turns. And then RBG is a documentary that I recommend to every person in this country.
Moving on to TV, I give my opinion on this season of Better Call Saul. Then I watched the Netflix show The Haunting of Hill House. Very creepy, but ultimately a good family story. Next, I urge everyone to watch Arrow. This season’s opener was so incredibly good and I think if you haven’t watched the previous seasons, you could start watching now. It really is the best show in the Arrowverse.
Since the fall TV season is in full swing, I talk about my disappointment with the network shows (less all CW shows) and how I haven’t found a new network show this year that I love. It’s really a bummer because many I have already stopped watching and the others, if they were to be canceled, I wouldn’t care. But there are many new cable and streaming shows that I am loving: Kidding, You, The Purge, Doctor Who and AHS:Apocalypse.
Did you know that I can read too??? I don’t very often, but I love biographies and here I talk about a book that just came out this week by Busy Philipps called This Will Only Hurt A Little. It’s a fantastic read and she tells the truth about her experiences in early life and then in Hollywood. Definitely recommended.
Finally, we finish with the Actors’ Corner and this week we chose Denzel Washington. This was the toughest round we have had so far to choose his movies that we love, like, hate, haven’t seen, and want to watch.
