Ronald, Steve, and John talk about Marcia Lucas’s recent disparaging comments about the Star Wars prequels and sequels (aka any Star Wars film she didn’t work on); Michael Showalter’s emotional and funny new biopic The Eyes of Tammy Faye; and the latest Netflix horror mini-series from director Mike Flanagan, Midnight Mass.
Movie news! Ronald talks about a few recent purchases of physical media (whatever that is)! Ronald and John report on the new season of The Morning Show!

It’s another multi-topic catchup episode as Ronald, Steve, and John share thoughts on the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home and then discuss the new Candyman movie, Hugh Jackman’s noirish Reminiscence, the uplifting drama of Coda, and Matt Damon and Tom McCarthy’s unusual ripped-from-the-headlines thriller, Stillwater.
The onslaught of television and movie viewing options continues this week, but Ronald, Steve, and John volunteer as tribute to suggest where your time is best spent.

Joe big-screen effort, Snake Eyes, and the atmospheric thriller The Night House.

Ron, Steve, and John catch up on the state of the film industry as it tries to lurch back into life after lockdown. Then they move on to some thoughts about recent films such as Jungle Cruise, Old, and The Green Knight. A pretty good slate of topics, but will it play in Peoria? Find out within!
