Ron, Steve, and John begin their long-promised rewatch of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series, starting with the first two installments, 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and 1985’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. One of these films is a classic; the other has the word “revenge” in the title. Listen to find out which is which!
Ron, Steve, and John are here with thoughts on two brand new movies you can watch today! They couldn’t be more different: the propulsive and engrossing tale of Black Panther Fred Hampton’s final days, Judas and the Black Messiah; and the silly, lumpy, and lighter-than-air buddy comedy, Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar. Listen in to find out which one features Kristen Wiig with helmet hair.
Ron, Steve, and John pick some anticipated WB movies scheduled to premiere both in theaters and on HBO Max this year. One such film, a Denzel Washington-starring thriller called The Little Things, is reviewed.
Ronald, Steve, and John give a little time to Christopher Nolan’s reality-bending spy thriller, Tenet, out now on home video. They also cover some industry news, and Steve recommends festival hit Promising Young Woman, coming your way December 25th.
Ronald, Steve, and John compare notes on season 4 of Fargo, which was equal parts gangland epic, family saga, and racial commentary, with some juicy performances throughout. (If you haven’t watched it yet, look out for the spoiler warning, about an hour in.) Recent movie news is also discussed, as is the custom.
