Nobody is safe from knife-wielding Gerard Butler, even Chris and Dylan as they take a look at London Has Fallen for the fifth episode of Film Fallout. Is it a xenophobic nightmare that does extremely horrible things to anything of a different race than white? Perhaps. But the real question is, can it be forgiven for being a really, really offensive movie? Listen to two white people discuss one of the more hateful movies in recent memory.
Dylan also saw Disney’s Zootopia, which just so happens to deal with race as well. And the duo discuss A Vice Guide to Film, a new show on Viceland. Other talking points include JK Simmons as the new Commissioner Gordon in Justice League, The Nice Guys getting a record release (and a limited XXX-wrap for it), Shane Black talking to Arnold Schwarzenegger possibly about casting for Predator, and there are some new Blu-ray releases including Victor Frankenstein, The Peanuts Movie, Victoria, The Tribe, and Paris Belongs to Us on Criterion.
You can listen to the podcast on London has Fallen below, and tune in next week when Chris and Dylan are back to talk about 10 Cloverfield Lane, the sequel to Cloverfield.
