What is it to tell your story? What is it to lie when you tell your own story or to make a new lie based upon an old truth? On this week's podcast we examine truths that come from lies, lies that come from truths, and just why either might matter.
"Rocketman" and "The Banana Splits Movie" may not look like they have anything in common, but nothing could be further from the truth.
A remake of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" (itself a remake), 2019's "The Hustle" puts Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson front and center as con-women out for a big score and the humiliation of each other.
It may have a solid pedigree, but it isn't a good movie and on today's podcast we're going to talk about how maybe that's not so bad.
"Avengers: Endgame" is now out on Blu-ray. We're not convinced it's a great movie, but it certainly is a great deal of fun and we all love it. There is an audacity to the film. This is a movie that wraps up a story that has played out over nearly two dozen films and does it with an incredible sense of nostalgia. It is weird and wild and wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable... but maybe not a great movie.
