12 Strong – S03E02

Howdy, all! We’re back again, this time with the latest Chris Hemsworth vehicle,

12 Strong

Based on the the exploits of the first special ops group to enter Afghanistan barely a month after the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11, 12 Strong details the military and political considerations of the world’s most advanced fighting force going into a country which has been under almost continual attack from without or within for centuries.

But is the movie any good?

Let’s see.

*Forgive my scratchy voice in this episode. We recorded this about an hour before I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Bronchitis. Needless to say, it’s been hard to talk without coughing like a 2 pack a day smoker, lol. I edited quite a few hacks from this episode for your enjoyment.*

The Shape of Water

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. We’re so glad you could attend. Come inside, come inside.*

This time out, we’re going to talk about the latest movie from the great Guillermo Del Toro,

The Shape of Water

Starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spenser, Michael Shannon, Doug Jones, and Richard Jenkins, this unusual fable/fairy tale/love story is unlike anything you’ve seen.

Well,at least it’s different from anything I’ve seen before.

Will you enjoy it? Let’s talk that.

*Many thanks to Emerson,Lake, and Palmer.

Nocturnal Animals

Hey, everyone!

This time out, Ryan and I take a look back to an interesting little film from writer/director Tom Ford:

Nocturnal Animals

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, and Michael Shannon, this multi-layered bit of art-house cinema is sure to elicit some very different responses from viewers.

Have a listen to what Ryan and I thought about it.
