Hey everybody! Remember how I said last week we were back? Yeah we are… but we’re taking another week off due to San Diego Comic Con and some Harry Potter Land action. But don’t worry we will be sure to bring you a full on review of that once we return. In the mean time we have some free shit good shit, Podquestions, Streaming review and our theatrical review of Ghostbusters (you know, the new one).
For our last streaming review I wanted us to watch The Big Short. Oh man… where to start with this movie? First off, we both liked it. We gave it a 4/5 if that’s any point of reference for you all. The reason I’m saying that up front is because while we liked the movie, this movie made us feel sick are points. It is not gross per say, but the seer lack of caring or humanity that is exhibited by the people (that the actors are portraying) is just ghastly. If you wanted a bit of a Hollywood-ified take on the behind the scenes of the housing crisis then look no further. It’s a well acted piece that does exactly what good cinema is supposed to do, it makes you feel. I might hold off a bit if you recently bought, or are in the process of buying a house (looking at you Mando), just because it might give you cold feet.
Next week’s streaming review is… nothing. We’re taking a break due to SDCC but if you have any suggestions please let us know!
You can suggest streaming movies that you want us to watch and review on future episodes that are on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime or HBOgo.
Please send your suggestions to us using any of the means below.
That is all for this week’s Blogcast. Next week we will be back to our same Hammer Time and Same Bat Channel.
