Yeah, yeah. Time to plug the podcast.

Important time codes:

“After Life” (2:32) (Note: I make reference to Mel Gibson’s THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST at about the 11:30 mark, but mistakenly calls it THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST which is Martin Scorsese’s hot take on whether Jesus was a hippie.)

LEAVING NEVERLAND and SURVIVING R. KELLY (15:47)

BORDER (36:30)

A discussion about how to talk to non-film critics about movies (45:40). And don’t forget to hit up our Patreon page.

“Captain Marvel” and “Lords of Chaos” on Spoilerpiece #243

Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) pre-Captain Marveling

Hey, gang! I’m recovering from my bout with pneumonia so I hit the mic with Kris Jenson and Evan Crean (as I usually do when I’m not sick) for the latest Spoilerpiece Theatre episode. We talk Captain Marvel (which they saw) and Lords of Chaos (which we all saw). Plus, we have a Patreon page where you can get exclusive audio. The weekly eps are always free, of course. Listen below!

Whew! It’s been a long time since I posted here. New baby, night feedings, then I had pneumonia, blah blah. Anyway, here’s a short review I wrote for Salt Lake City Weekly about Vincent D’Onofrio’s The Kid, a new-ish take on the Billy the Kid story.

Rio Cutler (Jake Schur) and his sister Sara (Leila George) kill their psycho father and hit the prairie with their evil uncle (a surprisingly dark Chris Pratt) in hot pursuit; because this is the movies, they naturally cross paths with Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan) while he’s on the run from Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke). Killing ensues.
