Episode 81: Don’t Bad Guys Watch Movies?

Don’t Bad Guys Watch Movies?

TJ’s voice is better, his Internet is back, and he and Chad are raring to go! First up: ‘The Muppets’! TJ has been getting caught up in preparation for the upcoming ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ and though he’s enjoyed some of them more than others he’s enjoying himself with the outlandish Muppet clan. Of course there’s also The Oscars to talk about. And don’t forget that there’s the rumor of a new ‘Matrix’ trilogy by the Wachowskis. And this week features two reviews: ‘The Monuments Men’ which neither Chad nor TJ liked very much, and ‘Non-Stop’, which was sadly a far better film than ‘Monuments Men’. What is the state of filmmaking coming to?

  • Rumor: New Matrix Trilogy in the Works

    The Wachowski siblings have a very long history over at Warner Bros. but with the exception of the Matrix Trilogy, none of their movies have had great financial success.

  • The Monuments Men — Review

    As you may have guessed from my star rating however at 2 of 5 stars, I did not really care for this film that much. So what happened. Well that my friends, is what I shall attempt to answer.

  • The Monuments Men — IMDb

    An unlikely World War II platoon is tasked to rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their owners.

  • The Monuments Men — Rotten Tomatoes

    Its intentions are noble and its cast is impressive, but neither can compensate for The Monuments Men's stiffly nostalgic tone and curiously slack narrative.

  • Non-Stop — Review

    The one thing you can never do when Liam Neeson is in the film is say that there was no talent brought to bear for whatever film you happen to be watching. Let’s review.

  • Non-Stop — IMDb

    An air marshal springs into action during a transatlantic flight after receiving a series of text messages that put his fellow passengers at risk unless the airline transfers $150 million into an off-shore account.

  • Non-Stop — Rotten Tomatoes

    While Liam Neeson is undoubtedly an asset, Non-Stop wastes its cast -- not to mention its solid premise and tense setup -- on a poorly conceived story that hinges on a thoroughly unbelievable final act.
