We’re finally entering 2018 with a review of Paddington 2 – a joyous introduction to a year that will definitely be filled with downers. Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan are ready to embrace the wonders of marmalade and being nice to your neighbors, even if the rest of the world wants to blow each other up. We talk about how this film compares to the original film, how there are two family movies with a Gleeson in them this year and why it’s evident only one of them made a good decision.
But before we get into Paddington 2 and how wonderful it is, we talk about Mom and Dad which stars Nicolas Cage and is directed by Brian Taylor (co-director of Crank and Gamer). It’s got an insane premise and is available on VOD, so let us let you know whether its worth spending your time on. We also take a deep dive into the Oscar nominations, including some discussion of snubs and surprises.
Next week, we will be back with a review of A Futile and Stupid Gesture from Netflix.
