In this quick and dirty episode, Andrew and I talk about LADY MACBETH, a difficult movie to say the least. If nothing else, this movie will garner a reaction.  We both highly recommend you watch it and decide for yourself before checking out this episode.  But we talk about unlikable characters, sexism, and first time directors and stars.  We hope you enjoy it!

I invite Jessi Lauren on to talk about THE GLASS CASTLE.  We cover a number of topics including the movie, her dislike of Woody Harrelson, her love of Brie Larson/SHORT TERM 12, and redheads growing up poor.  We touch on most of the performances and the shortcomings of the film.

 

Sadly, a technical glitch ruined fangirl fixation this week, so no Britt.  But, in summary.  THE SPECTACULAR NOW is not good, but THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD looks hilarious.  Who knew?
