80 – What is a spy movie? No, really, we might not know


Plus: Is that David Foster Wallace movie a travesty?

Katey, Patches and Da7e and David are back to talk about how authors and famous people an how they are portrayed in film. First, everyone but Da7e has seen the David Foster Wallace book-tour movie The End of the Tour and debates what this movie is about and if that makes it worth watching. Then, Patches wants to know if someone being famous is reason enough to document them, which ends up unveiling the groups true feelings about the documentary format. Finally, for Segment 3, we all think we know what a spy movie is, but it turns out, we don’t.

REVIEW – Pixels, or whatever


Kevin James is an illiterate US President, just to set the mood.

There’s a new Adam Sandler movie out and it’s about video games. The aliens that pretend to be video games probably don’t win the day, but can Pixels survive Patches, David and Katey giving it an actual critical reckoning?
How was LAST week’s review called “Trainwreck” with this movie on the slate?

What TV shows did you give up on?

Katey, Patches and David continue their amazing pleasant conversations without Da7e around talking about Ant-Man. Katey is watching Friday Night Lights and hit the ever-difficult second season, prompting a conversation about True Detective Season 2 and when we pull the rip-cord on a series that isn’t doing it for us anymore. Then – Patches got engaged! – the hosts each pick a movie that makes them think of marriage in a celebratory mini-segment. Finally: Adam Sandler: how is this still a thing? Is there anything really morally wrong with people spending money to make crappy and lazy movies that make money, or can we hate-hate-hate on it?
