The Good Nurse | Bodies Bodies Bodies | Emily the Criminal
Guys, it finally happened: Rebecca and Jason recorded together IN PERSON for the first time in nearly three years! Did it become a cautionary tale about our Covid-weakened immune systems? Irrelevant! The important thing is that they sat together in Jason’s LA living room and discussed Tobias Lindholm’s THE GOOD NURSE (which they’d just watched together!), Halina Reijn’s BODIES BODIES BODIES, and John Patton Ford’s EMILY THE CRIMINAL. Enjoy their in-person chemistry because this might be the last time!

Black Widow | Zola | Luca | Summer of Soul | Mary J. Blige's My Life

BLIGE’S MY LIFE.

Godzilla vs. Kong | Shiva Baby | Moffie | Concrete Cowboy
It’s strange bedfellows this week on The Binge, in which we mix Adam Wingard’s stupidly fun spectacle GODZILLA VS.
