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.
