Is Wes Anderson’s latest stop-motion feature Isle of Dogs man’s best friend? The Cinemaholics are back this week to review the new film, which features the voice talents of Bryan Cranston, Koyu Rankin, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Balaban, Scarlett Johansson and many more. Critics are loving it, but Jon and Maveryke definitely have some thoughts on the story and how it might turn off some viewers with its cultural subtext.
Later in the show, Jon and Maveryke discuss Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 blockbuster favorite (this new film is directed by Steven S. DeKnight), and they close things out by teasing the new HBO series Barry, which stars Bill Hader as a contract killer who takes up acting.
