Greetings programs! We’re a day late in posting this episode of the podcast, but to make up for it, we’re talking about three, yes three, excellent movies for you to watch. First up is Pixar’s Turning Red, their first feature set in Canada and another surefire hit for Disney+. Second, we’re talking about the Disney+/Hulu original Fresh, a romantic thriller that goes to some very unexpected places. Last but far from least, we’re talking about the sophomore film from Kogonada, After Yang, a quiet and touching film about what it means to be alive.
There are streaming links as well as our ratings after the jump. Join us!
The Lobster takes place in a world where if you are single for too long, you are turned into an animal, and if you really want to be single, you have to go live in the woods. It sounds weird, and it is, but it’s also a hilarious commentary on our world and relationships and how we sometimes get what’s important wrong. Yes, it’s a bizarre movie, but the best kind of science fiction often is.
This one has been off my radar so I didn’t actually realize it comes out tomorrow.
I’ve been kind of cold on this dilm to date because the trailers previous to this one have all kind of… sucked. This one does a better job of making it seem like I might like this movie, which is good because it’s full of people I like.
