Review – The Hateful Eight 70mm Roadshow

h8

Nobody wins.

This week, Katey, Patches, Da7e and Joanna all traveled to real theaters to see an Ultra Panavision 70 movie shot and projected on honest-to-God celluloid: The Hateful Eight 70mm Roadshow.  Quentin Tarantino’s latest is a Western potboiler in two acts with a bunch of characters who are trapped together in a snowstorm inside Minnie’s Haberdashery. Join our hosts as they debate if this movie is actually about anything and if the lush projection added or detracted from the dialogue-heavy film.

Review – The Big Short

The-Big-Short

The financial sky is falling

This week, David, Patches, and Katey bet against the banks, make a billion dollars, then quit the podcasting business. Just kidding. They made a billion dollars and decided to review The Big Short. They also pick answers to a lightning round question about celebrity cameos.
