Today, for the modest achievment of reaching our 50'th episode, we do our first (and possibly last) double feature. Side note: both of these films are available on Netflix (so we're trying to meet you halfway, audience).
We check back in with Neil Breen (previously discussed in episode 18.5) and his new film Fateful Findings, totally not in an attempt to buy ourselves some time before we get to our 50'th episode because it has been a slow week in film news...
In 2010 Disney took a big leap in trying to recreate the success of Pirates of the Carribean, except in the acient Middle-East...It didn't pan out so well. I mean, it's not like after this they'd try to do the same thing except on Mars, right?
We celebrate Rick Famuyiwa's new (mostly) praised movie Dope by revisiting his first feature-length film The Wood. A similar coming-of-age story gets overshadowed by a strangely toneless coming-of...middle-age story.
