“Hell or High Water” #ConTENders *Spoiler-Free

Oscar Season has officially begun.

I just came out of the recent Crime/Drama two-hander, written by Taylor Sheridan, and directed by David Mackenzie:

Hell or High Water is a smart and seditious look into the darker side of financial ruin. The Howard brothers, Tanner and Toby (played by Ben Foster and Chris Pine, respectively), are both on the wrong side of the social system: The former recently released from prison, and the latter struggling to keep his family’s ranch from the clutches of their local Texas Midland Bank.Read More »

25- It’s a Two Man Sausage Party!

We lost a host, as John is out this week, but August and Jamie continue the show with a “mini.” The boys tackle the R-rated Animated feature named, Sausage Party. Then they get in the weeds and talk related films of similar ilk (mostly animation), religion, and what would make a good R-Rated animation film.

Yeah, so not so mini.

 

Movie– Sausage Party (Starts at 00:00)

Naturally SPOILERS for each film ahead!

Each odd-numbered episode we talk specific films, and each even-numbered episode we discuss topics regarding Hollywood and the things we’re passionate about (either way).

“Sausage Party” #ConTENders

I honestly never expected to write a #ConTENder post for an R-Rated, raunchy, animated foray into the Pixar-like “behind the curtain” film (a lá Toy Story), but here I am: Sausage Party is one of the funniest films of the year.

The first dick joke, and it’s only the poster.

Now for those of you who aren’t fans of Seth Rogen (or his films), will undoubtedly disagree with this post. This movie won’t change your mind on co-writers Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s type of humor, and it’s not meant to.Read More »

Swiss Army Man’s TRUE MEANING #ConTENders 2016

There have been many films this year that I’ve been lucky enough to witness, both new and old, good and bad, at which I’ve stated: “I’ve never seen a film like this before;” and Swiss Army Man fits that bill to a T, and that is why the movie is definitely a #ConTENder for Top Ten of 2016.

I will get into SPOILERS pertaining to my theory of the film at THE END of this post. For now, I just want to talk about the film itself. But please ONLY read up until that point if you still haven’t seen the film.
