Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan have moved on to begin their appreciation of 2016 Peter Berg by reviewing his latest film, Patriots Day. Starring Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman and Kevin Bacon, the film looks at the events of the Boston marathon bombing and takes a procedural look at how those responsible were brought to justice. Hear us discuss the rise of Peter Berg as the new Clint Eastwood and why Berg has become a director that we have both learned to love.
There isn’t much news this week so we mainly just take a look at the Golden Globe winners to see how much we disagree with those. On top of that, there are finally some Criterions to talk about for new releases.
Dylan also saw Fences, Hidden Figures, and The Autopsy of Jane Doe. And Chris saw The Hollow Point and Mad Max Fury Road: Black & Chrome Edition. But what is most important is that next week we’ll be talking about our first highly anticipated film of 2017 – xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. That’s right, welcome to the first round of Vin Diesel’s domination of 2017.
