The One I Love is this week’s full movie review, and it’s almost impossible to talk about without spoiling. Logan and Bob get creative, though, and I think you can get a good idea whether you like it from our discussion.
Bob mini reviews Robocop; Logan mini reviews Rectify–which he loved but doesn’t necessarily recommend.
For our weekend picks, we’ve got this one more week of a TV wasteland before the fall season starts to trickle back next week. Bob mentions The November Man and Life of Crime, but leans towards The Congress. Or maybe reaching into the recent past for the week’s movie.
Logan and Bob review Lucy. Scarlett Johansson in an action flick with a cool premise? Sounds fun–how does the movie deliver on that promise?
Bob throws out some mini reviews: Belle, Cheap Thrills, and Anchorman 2.
In weekend picks, Logan’s lukewarm about the week’s TV premieres. Bob’s interested in a few movies, on the other hand. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Love Is Strange, and The One I Love.
With Bob back for the whole show, we reach back and review Guardians of the Galaxy. Is Chris Pratt really an action star? Is there anything worth nitpicking with this fun movie?
Bob mini reviews Three Days to Kill and Grand Piano.
Logan gives us the week of for new summer TV, and Bob isn’t impressed with the week’s wide release offerings. We’ll decide between catching a current indie flick and seeing a movie a week or two old. Stay tuned on Twitter for the latest!
Bob’s away for the main show, so Shannon steps in and talks about Obvious Child with Logan. How does it deal with the topic of abortion? And what buttons of Logan’s does it push?
Shannon also brings up a couple movies she’s seen recently: Enough Said and The Counselor. Both of which Logan and Bob had strong opinions about in prior shows.
Bob does call in for a quick weekend picks segment at the end. Logan recommends The Knick on TV, and Bob calls for us to go back and catch up on Guardians of the Galaxy for next week.
There’s a lot of pressure on Begin Again as our full movie review this week, since both Logan and Bob liked John Carney’s previous offering, Once, quite a bit. Does Begin Again incorporate music as well as Once? How does it pull off the flashbacks?
Bob’s got a few mini reviews for us this week, too: Europa Report, The Trip, and Portlandia.
In weekend picks, Logan distills the usually-mediocre summer offerings into the one that seems most promising: Married. And Bob’s on the lookout for which indie flick is showing near him. Or he just might want to go back and watch Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
