Boxing Helena is a movie Dan McDowell will reference from time to time on BaD Radio when trying to shock. TC Fleming is calling his bluff, bringing Dan in to review the movie.
TC Fleming reviews the new Star Wars movie with Skyler Thiot and Dan McDowell.
Megan and I talk about the Washington thriller Miss Sloane. That includes discussions of guns, the constitution and the crazy conversation 2 girls were having in the line for refreshments.
The Ticket’s Trey Mitchell is back as guest host, and he’s always got a good sense for picking out movies. Watching Se7en with 2016 eyes, there are a lot of surprises. The last time I watched the whole movie start to finish was more than a decade ago, so it’s crazy to see how relationships to the characters had changed. But it’s also very interesting to see how differently the culture viewed cities in 1995. It’s hard to imagine a movie coming out today that took such a harsh view of the urban core. It’s equally hard to imagine people being surprised the FBI keeps track of people’s book rentals. Trey and I sort all of that out.
