The Two Faces of January, Married, Weekend Picks

This week’s movie is The Two Faces of January. Does the ending wrap everything up nicely, or leave us wanting? How does it compare to another of Amini’s screenplays: Drive?

Logan mini review’s FX’s Married. It’s not the funniest comedy on TV (though there are some laughs), so what keeps him watching?

In weekend picks, Logan will be watching Gracepoint and the new season of Homeland. Bob’s looking forward to Gone Girl, or maybe Men, Women, & Children.

Let’s rock!

This Is Where I Leave You, Metro: 2033, You’re the Worst, Weekend Picks

Logan and Bob review This Is Where I Leave You this week, and we have a lot to say. What made Logan change his rating while writing his review? Why was Bob initially nervous about his? 

Bob mini reviews a recently re-released video game: Metro: 2033, and talks about re-releasing video games in general. Logan mini reviews FX’s You’re the Worst, a show that defied his expectations going in.

In weekend picks, TV season is in full effect, with a ton of returning shows and new ones (How To Get Away With Murder, blackish, and Transparent) to keep an eye on. Bob calls it on movies: next week we’re reviewing The Two Faces of January.

Let’s rock!

The Congress, Stand-Up Comedy, Wicked, Hedwig, Weekend Picks

Logan and Bob review The Congress this week. How well does it live up to its ambitions? Did Logan sit and watch the whole way through even though he watched it at home On Demand?

An unusual crop of mini reviews this week! Bob saw some stand-up comedy, and both Logan and Bob saw some musical theater. (Hedwig and Wicked.)

In weekend picks, Logan will be watching Red Band Society, Gotham, and The Good Wife. Bob’s pretty sure we’re gonna see This Is Where I Leave You.

Let’s rock!

Life of Crime, Palo Alto, The Leftovers, Mass Effect, Tomb Raider, Weekend Picks

We cover a ton of material this week. Logan and Bob start off with dual (dueling?) reviews: Bob watched Life of Crime–does the killer cast deliver? Logan watched Palo Alto–how close is James Franco’s creepiness to what he did in Spring Breakers?

Logan mini reviews (meaning, he stuck out) The Leftovers. Is it worth the weekly hit of despair?

Logan’s also been playing the original(!) Mass Effect and the new Tomb Raider. The guys chat a bit about video games, genres, and what it means to have a woman as the main character.

Finally, in weekend picks, Logan mentions the guilty pleasure that is Sons of Anarchy. Yay, it’s the final season! Bob’s got his eye on 3 indie flicks, with The Skeleton Twins looking like the winner so far.

Let’s rock!

Love Is Strange, Video Games: The Movie, Suits, Weekend Picks

Logan and Bob continue the summer of indie movies by watching Love Is Strange. How does the characters’ sexuality come into play? Why does Logan wish all his friends would watch this movie?

Bob mini reviews Video Games: The Movie. Logan mini reviews the Suits summer season.

In weekend picks, Logan mentions, but probably won’t be watching, The League (not good enough for him to order FXX) and Boardwalk Empire (too much like waking up in the morning). Bob’s still thinking about the week’s movies, so keep an eye out on Twitter for our final choice for next week’s full review.

Let’s rock!
