Not In a Creepy Way

Eric, Brother J, Drew, and Bruno all tackle the Sam Neill, Nicole Kidman, Billy Zane tour de force ‘Dead Calm.’ It’s quite a nice movie but has some glaring flaws.

Not In a Creepy Way

Whistleblowers are in the news so it’s only appropriate for the brothers to watch the Michael Mann film “The Insider.”

Not In a Creepy Way

Drew and Eric liked the Tom Cruise paint-by-numbers movie Days of Thunder. Brother J thought it was hot garbage. You tell them who is right.

Not In a Creepy Way

All the brothers have a loosey-goosey talk about RKO 281, the HBO docudrama about the making of Citizen Kane. Along the way there’s a long tangent about Brexit (about which the brothers admittedly don’t know a ton but Eric has opinions nonetheless)

More Episodes

Grosse Pointe Blank is full of great actors quipping fun lines amidst solid action sequences set to late 80’s music. What’s not to love?

Correction: Eric mentions that the director, George Armitage, also directed 1971’s “Private Duty Nurses,” which Eric described as a “Nudie Cutie” movie. Upon further review it is probably better described as a “Sexploitation” movie.

In housekeeping we discuss Rogue One, The Accountant, House of 1000 Corpses, Dawn of the Dead, and Exorcist III. We also recommend the podcasts: “Monster Party” and “In the Dark.”
