Three film critics - Kristofer Jenson of C-Ville Weekly, Evan Crean of Starpulse, and David Riedel of the Santa Fe Reporter - review movies, including current releases, notable stuff that fell through the cracks, and whatever else pops up. We take lots of tangents, gang. Opening music: "My Life as a God" by Augean Stables. Closing music: "Pants Party" by Oilhead.

It’s a heapin’ helpin’ of Spoilerpiece this week, as the guys tackle six movies (!!), and welcome special guest Max Covill! Max writes for Film School Rejects and co-hosts his own podcast, It’s the Pictures. Max gets things a-goin’ with A GHOST STORY (4:15), a movie that stars Casey Affleck as one of the kids from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, and Rooney Mara as the woman who loves him. It’s the kind of movie Kris wishes he’d seen, but hasn’t yet. There’s a brief tangent into what makes a horror movie a horror movie (A GHOST STORY is not, FYI) at 12:30, and then Riedel’s Recaps with THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT (17:00), one of Clint Eastwood’s least Clint Eastwood-like pictures. Max takes over at 27:15 for WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES. Kris tackles THE LOVELESS (41:30), Kathryn Bigelow’s first film as director, and Evan spoilerpieces THE BUBBLE (47:50), a film in which an Israeli man and Palestinian man fall in love and lots of people are unhappy about it. The big ‘un this week is OKJA. Everyone has seen it. AND THERE ARE SUPER DIVERSE OPINIONS! This week’s episode was brought to you by factory farming, btw.
