When asked for his opinion on movies, the question regularly comes up whether or not a movie Josh is recommending to someone is "worth" seeing on the big screen. The question, as he sees it, is one of spectacle. So, to answer it, he has taken another look at "The Walk," which definitely wowed him on the big screen.
The "Mission: Impossible" movie franchise is almost 20 years old. Who would have guessed that it would still be achieving creative success at this point... and without recasting its lead actor. And what about Marvel's "Ant-Man," which is really about a guy who can push a button that is attached to a magic suit someone else gave him? Another relatively improbably success.
Josh praises both these achievements in this minisode.
Different actors approach roles differently. That should be no surprise. What is surprising, and endlessly fascinating, is just how some actors go about this preparation. On this episode, actor Gene Jones tells his method, let's us in on his secrets. This all stems from a discussion of his latest film, "Dementia," which offers a look at one elderly man's struggles in the present due to his past.
The holidays are a time for family. They are also a time for film going. But, a trip to "The Good Dinosaur" this weekend with his family left Josh disheartened. It was not all that he hoped it would be. There was but one opportunity left to him when he returned home -- watch "Minions."
