Chris and Dylan sharpen their knives, detach themselves from any emotional connections, lock themselves in rooms across the country from each other, and yell about the best acting (male and female), best cinematography, best screenplay, best directing and the best scenes in film of 2015. Next week we will have our personal year-end lists for the best and worst films of 2015. There should not be any debates, just lots of us being excited about the year in film.
Click past the Joe Manganiello gif for YouTube videos (separated by category, will be added throughout the next couple days) and the complete list of nominees and winners.

Want to listen to two people complain about how boring a movie about robots killing people is? Well, Chris and Dylan burn through a review of Terminator Genisys as quickly as possible so they can get to the stuff they really want to talk about. Dylan talks about the new Michael Fassbender western, Slow West, which is available now on Blu-ray, and later talks about penises in The Overnight. Meanwhile, Chris talks about Mark Duplass being weird in Creep, the latest found footage horror film from Blumhouse Productions. Then Dylan and Chris explore what makes Magic Mike XXL so much fun. But really, you’re all here for the showstopper, which is our take on Max – think American Sniper meets The Guest meets reverse-John Wick. We also spoil some stuff because no one is going to see it, but there’s fair warning. So many movies! Next week, we will be all over that new Minions movie.

The first Magic Mike became a weird moment for me where now I had to explain to people repeatedly that it’s really not just about sexy men taking off their shirts and thrusting at women. In fact, it was downright depressing at times and often confronted strippers as people bound to their profession. They either strip, or they become aimless in life. Magic Mike XXL is in many ways a response to the first film’s ideologies, and an exploration into what it means to be a male entertainer. Forget the moments of sadness and existential crises – this is a movie that celebrates selflessness and passion.
