It’s that time of year where we all pretend the movies are okay! Bryan and Taylor did some double duty this week to bring you talk of the latest and greatest from the cineplex.
They discuss the tension between the opening of “Nocturnal Animals” and the rest of the movie (8:40), Taylor’s favorite moment of seeing “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” on opening night (19:10), and the surprising boldness and optimistic sadness of the film (21:15). Then they talk about some of their issues with the movie (28:05), praise the god Ben Mendelsohn (36:15) and break down the exciting new Hamilton Mixtape and Riz Ahmed’s very good year (43:00). Finally, Taylor and Bryan throw out a few movie recommendations (51:30).
As always, thanks to Levi Bradford for the theme song. You can find his music here.
