About This Show
A light-hearted comedic movie podcast focusing on the week's new cinema releases. Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano spend their hard earned (or borrowed) cash to see the latest film releases and tell you what they thought. Because they don't get in for free, their opinions are honest. Honestly! May contain funny bits (they're both Groundlings trained improvisers) and strange non sequiturs (Anthony has a degree in film and Darren has an Olympic medal in rambling). Maybe some naughty words too.

Ep 92: Thoroughbreds, Death Of Stalin & Heaven Is A Traffic Jam On The 405

BREAKING NEWS: The news sucks, so we open the show discussing how to disconnect from the negativity, while staying informed (i.e Darren's laptop is broken so he can't get sucked in to social media as much). Movie reviews include ‘Thoroughbreds’ (Olivia Cook, Anya Taylor-Joy, Anton Yelchin), Armando Iannucci’s ‘The Death of Stalin’ (Steve Buscemi, Jeffery Tambor, Jason Isaacs), and the Oscar Winner for Best Documentary Short Subject ‘Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405’. Anthony raves about Iannucci’s previous film, ‘In The Loop’, Darren gets traumatized by SNL, and we talk about Sarah Michelle Gellar’s career post-vampire. We rundown South by Southwest, truly show that we care about our listeners, and introduce the delightfully self-pleasuring, Hans Fray. The show ends on a Maddow-like cliffhanger. Who’s to say if it will pay off?
