This week was filled with lots of movie-watching!
First, Dhani talks about The Grinch and how she was disappointed with the changes they made to the core story. Probably entertaining for kids, but not for those that love the original.
Next, Dhani talks about The House With A Clock In Its Walls. She was pleasantly surprised by this movie and how entertaining and intriguing the story was! She thinks this is due to Eli Roth’s direction, but also the performances were believable in an unbelievable world! Enjoyable film for all to see!
Next, Dhani watched The Happytime Murders. Yes, this has puppets… no, it’s not for kids. But, Dhani found this movie really, really funny and thought the story was much better than she thought it would be!
Next, John and Dhani finally saw a movie that came out last year, Downsizing. Both of them discuss the slight disappoint in this movie and the storyline going to a really deep place that they weren’t expecting.
Moving on to TV, Dhani felt it necessary to talk about The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale and how amazing the show has become even without Rick Grimes. Then, John and Dhani gush about the special from this week, A Legendary Christmas with John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. This was the best special Dhani has seen since she was a kid and it was a throwback to the old variety specials of yore.
Finally, in the Actors’ Corner, we discuss the films of Matt Damon. John and Dhani talk about the movies that we love, like, hate, secretly love, and are embarrassed we haven’t seen. It’s very difficult to choose these, so listen as we struggle to narrow down our choices.
