Week 34 packs a punch with a disturbing nail biter in Don’t Breathe. We catch our breath with a look at the President’s first date with the First Lady called Southside With You then dive into Deep Web (now on Amazon Instant) which is a fascinating if not unsettling documentary about the infamous Silk Road website and it’s “creator” Dread Pirate Roberts. Greg brings it home with a 2016 film called The American Dream.
We’re back and have the longest show title ever to show for it. Greg and Anderson discuss Werner Herzog’s new doc where he tries to figure out the internet. Natalie Portman directs her first feature with A Tale of Love and Darkness and John Turturro kills it in an Italian film called Mia Madre. Anderson is insecure with his streaming pick so he has three, they are Creep, Baskin and Dark Passage while Greg brings us another Bacall and Bogart classic in To Have and Have Not.
Greg and Anderson discuss The Little Prince as well as Little Men, the documentary about stand up comedy and the first amendment called Can We Take a Joke? as well as an upsetting doc called Kids for Cash that is currently streaming on Netflix while Greg brings us The Invitation as his blu ray pick of the week.
Week 30 on CinemAddicts brings two very different films to the program. A giant action thriller that angers Greg in Jason Bourne and a gut wrenching documentary that cannot be missed called Gleason. Greg educates us on a lesser known Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall venture called Dark Passage while Anderson discusses a fascinating documentary about the 3D printing business called Print the Legend which is currently streaming in Netflix.
Week 29 brings us Star Trek Beyond which doesn’t need explaining, or does it? There’s also a new Mike Birbiglia comedy about an improv troop called Don’t Think Twice and Greg and Anderson think about that for a bit. Train to Busan is a Korean take on Zombies and Elisabeth Moth gets all emotional in Queen of Earth (currently streaming in Netflix) and Greg talks a little bit about the differences in Zack Snyder’s cut of Batman v Superman vs. the theatrical cut for his DVD pick of the week.
Greg and Anderson talk controversy and Woody as Cafe Society hits theaters this week as does Bryan Cranston’s The Infiltrator which is based on actual accounts of undercover work done in the 80’s in an effort to take down Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel. A fantastic little western in Slow West which currently streams on Amazon Prime is covered as is Greg’s DVD pick, My Golden Days.
Summer is well underway and while that usually means nothing but explosions and comic book heroes donning the screens at our multiplexes, Greg and Anderson cover some smaller gems and go documentary heavy on week 27 of Cinemaddicts. Alternative parenting is examined in Captain Fantastic while alternative medicine is explored in Nuts!, a fascinating documentary about Dr. John Romulus Brinkley, one of America’s most interesting salesmen. Staying with the anti-modern society theme, Anderson brings the doc Surfiwise (now on Netflix) and a Noam Chomsky doc called Requiem for the American Dream (also on Netflix) into the fold while Greg shares the first ever film noir with the Peter Lorre driven Stranger on the Third Floor.
CinemAddicts hits the halfway point of 2016 and we bring a slew of films to discuss including an offbeat adventure/comedy in Swiss Army Man, a beautiful doc on autism in Life Animated as well as a subtle John le Carré adaptation called Our Kind of Traitor and a Bruce Willis heist film with a twist titled Marauders.
