It may have taken him decades to work up the courage, but Josh has finally sat down to watch the first eight "Friday the 13th" movies. Why did it take so long? What does he think about them? Why do so many folks in these movies just happen to have machetes? We answer some of these questions and more on this week's episode.
Horror movie "The Night House" proves to be a powerful one not because of its story, which starts off well and then never quite succeeds, but rather because of the performance of the actress at its center, Rebecca Hall. This week, we celebrate what Hall brings to an otherwise mediocre haunted house film, one that requires her to spend a whole lot of time on screen alone, and is perhaps best in those moments.
Out now on digital as well as Blu-ray, Ryan Reynolds' "Free Guy" is one of those movies that actually delivers on the fun of its premise. We sit there and watch as this video game NPC becomes something more than just a background character. Most importantly though, it pleased Josh's son, who has been anxiously anticipating the film for two years.
