Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan have returned with a jam-packed episode, topped off with a review of Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit. We talk about how an eye on objectivity may have hurt the film, the inherent issues with having a white woman direct a film with this subject matter, and what baggage comes with trying to tell a true story.
The episode is filled with plenty of movies and TV this week though. Dylan watched both Lady Macbeth and Brigsby Bear, two movies he went in with hesitancy about and came out more positive than he expected. Meanwhile, Chris saw The Dark Tower and has no choice but to try and explain why the movie isn’t as bad as people say it is. And of course, we both saw Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, the new Netflix show based on the cult classic film.
We talk about how much debt Netflix is in, and the usual blu-ray releases of the week, including our pick – King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (which we did a podcast on). Return next week when we talk about Wind River.
