Chris didn’t see Dirty Grandpa, but Dylan sat through Robert De Niro’s latest comedy flop, and gives the lowdown on just how bad it is. They also discuss Oscar diversity. Dylan talks about Son of Saul and a Quay brothers retrospective, while Chris talks about the pilot episode of Billions and The Last Witch Hunter. Next week, we were going to review Jane Got a Gun, but it seems like we will be tackling Michael Bay’s latest, 13 Hours.
Chris and Dylan dance into the night with a review of We Are Your Friends, which has Zac Efron being an EDM bro. Despite our expectations, you may want to hear what we actually thought about this one. I was gonna seamlessly edit out the point in which I turned off Skype, but then realized that I’m okay with the shame. Then we lightly peruse the offerings for new releases this week, with emphasis on how awesome Mad Max: Fury Road is. Dylan distances himself further from Noah Baumbach with Mistress America, and grows closer to David Simon with Show Me a Hero. Chris explains how awesome throwing children is in No Escape and how almost-stylish but really bad Hitman: Agent 47 ended up being.
