Josh: Did we really need a sequel to "Mamma Mia!?"
You: Why not ask if we needed the original movie in the first place.
Josh: I love that idea! Done! Listen to this week's podcast episode where we discuss both the need for a sequel as well as a need for the original and my inability to get "Waterloo" out of my head.
Mamma mia, here we go again.
Arriving in theaters this week is a documentary called, "Weed the People." Essentially it builds an argument that marijuana may be an effective treatment against cancer. It does this by offering up a tiny amount of science and a whole lot of anecdotes. Unfortunately, at the start of the movie it also explains that anecdotes are not evidence, thereby undercutting its entire argument.
But, that's not the only problem with the film, listen as we discuss.
People lament the lack of movies that aren't reboots or sequels or new films in a larger franchise, but here's the thing -- original stuff still exists, you might just actually have to look for it. Out this week on DVD is "The Catcher was a Spy," and it's new and good and just requires a little more effort than hitting the local multiplex.
