Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan have returned just in time to discuss the whitewashing event of the year: Ghost in the Shell. We’re still giving away a copy of the original (read on below), but we talk about a great many things with this film including its plot justification for whitewashing, its replication of moments from the original, and the film’s box office results.

Dylan also talks about Netflix’s Five Came Back documentary miniseries, as well as the first season of Big Little Lies which just ended. He also gives his thoughts on the new film from Alice Lowe, Prevenge. Meanwhile, Chris saw an upcoming horror anthology series entitled The Dark Tapes, and the two of them discuss The Discovery from Charlie McDowell (The One I Love). There’s also news like Jordan Peele being considered for that long-gestating Akira remake and we have our blu-ray releases for the week, including our pick of the week: Paterson.
We also spend a decent amount of time discussing The Book of Henry trailer because…well, if you’ve seen it, you know why. Check it out below:
Next week, we shall return with an entire episode dedicated solely to The Fast and the Furious franchise. That’s right, the entire thing. Then we’ll be back the week after with a regular episode that talks all about The Fate of the Furious.
