The spooky season has arrived which means it’s time for Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan to get ready for the ultimate scares. We begin this week with a review of Gerald’s Game, the new film from Mike Flanagan that stars Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood, and is also adapted from a Stephen King novel. We don’t quite agree on this one, but there’s plenty to talk about including how it deals with some of its more controversial topics, some third act woes, and whether Gugino holds her own in a movie reliant on her performance selling it.
Not only that, but Chris can finally talk about American Made which he saw a month ago overseas. Meanwhile, Dylan watched Lucky as part of the Vancouver International Film Festival and talks about one of Harry Dean Stanton’s final performances. We also discuss the latest season of You’re The Worst and Dylan talks about the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. There’s plenty of Avatar news and a pretty weak week of Blu-rays, but don’t worry, we got you covered anyways.
Next week, we’ll be back to talk about Blade Runner 2049.
