Adult Beginners, Borderlands, Togetherness, The Skeleton Twins, Weekend Picks

It’s an unofficial mumblecore episode this week. Our full movie review is Adult Beginners. What’s our definition of mumblecore, and how does this movie fit in? How’s Nick Kroll in a shot at being a leading man?

Bob reviews Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. Which Borderlands title should you play if you’re just getting into the franchise? Bob tells us.

Logan has two mumblecore-flavored mini reviews, in HBO’s Togetherness and the movie The Skeleton Twins.

In weekend picks, Logan talks about the new season of Penny Dreadful (though Bob’s out on the show already). Bob’s movie pick is definitely Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Let’s rock!

True Story, Justified, Shameless, Weekend Picks

This week’s full movie review is True Story. How’s Jonah Hill as a leading man? Does the story’s appeal make us forgive a few flaws?

Logan mini reviews two TV shows: the final season of Justified, and Shameless–two really good shows more people should watch.

In weekend picks, Logan’s intrigued by Happyish, and Bob chooses Adult Beginners for the week’s movie.

While We’re Young, Wild, Better Call Saul, Weekend Picks

This week we review a very Brooklyn movie: While We’re Young. Do Logan and Bob agree on how good it is? Not a chance! Find out which of us finds the themes provocative and insightful, and which one was left scratching his head about the changing flavors of the movie.

Logan mini reviews Wild (does he change his pick for 2014 best actress?) and Better Call Saul (how does it live up to the inevitable comps to Breaking Bad?).

In weekend picks, Logan mentions Orphan Black, and Bob’s thinking about maybe True Story or Alex of Venice, but you’ll have to watch for our final pick on Twitter.

Let’s rock!

Furious 7, Going Clear, A Most Violent Year, Weekend Picks

Back to movies this week. Furious 7 is the blockbuster on our minds this week. Has the Fast and Furious franchise become required viewing? How’s the Paul Walker sendoff?

Bob mini reviews the Scientology documentary Going Clear. Logan mini reviews A Most Violent Year.

In weekend Picks, Logan has a lot of recommendations, including Game of Thrones, Veep, and more. And, surprisingly, Bob’s potentially intrigued by one of those Bravo reality shows: Million Dollar Listing New York. Bob doesn’t see a clear winner for the week’s movie, but mentions Ex Machina and Clouds of Sils Maria as possible choices. Keep track of us on Twitter for the final pick.

House of Cards, Girls, Downton Abbey, Citizen 4, FH2 Furious, Weekend Picks

We watched TV this week instead of movies, and we review to recent seasons: House of Cards (which of us likes it more than the critics?) and Girls (it may not have caused a scandal this season, but it sure is clicking).

Bob mini reviews a bunch for us. Downton Abbey, Forza Horizon/Furious 7, and Citizen Four all get his verdicts.

In weekend picks, Logan is pumped for the final return of Mad Men. And Bob calls Furious 7 our must see.

Let’s rock!
