The Cinemaholics have a great time reviewing Good Time this week, which stars Robert Pattinson and is directed by the Safdie brothers. Unfortunately, they have a less enjoyable time talking Death Note, a Netflix original movie based on the anime series of the same name and starring Nat Wolff and Willem Dafoe.
A few other films are tackled during this outing as well, like Brigsby Bear and Leap! Furthermore, the episode introduces a new segment called “On Tap,” where Jon interviews Kayleigh Donaldson of Pajiba in order to break down the “Handbook for Mortals” controversy surrounding a YA book that bought its way to the New York Times Bestseller list seemingly to shore up a movie deal.
As always, here are the links to what was discussed this week (your Cinemahomework):
- Review of Good Time
- Review of Death Note
- Review of Brigsby Bear
- “Handbook for Mortals” controversy breakdown
