Jim and A.Ron saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle tonight, and pronounce it stupid, but fun. Maybe ever so slightly less stupid than the first one, but also maybe not reaching quite the dizzying heights of crazy either. But everyone in the movie looked like they were in on the joke and having the time of their lives, which helps tremendously. Everyone looks like a million bucks, the stunts are awesome and entertaining, and there are great cameos and dare we say smart payoffs to stupid jokes from the previous film. You probably already know if you’re going to see this movie or not, and if so, relax, you’re going to have a good time. We also discuss upcoming movies and trailers, but if you want to hear our spoiler portion of the review, you’ll have to be a Club Member. Country road, take me home!
Special thanks to Lauren, Anne, and Rick who chipped in to commission this podcast on Magnolia for Alex Myers as a Christmas (!!!) present. Jim and I had never seen Magnolia, the Paul Thomas Anderson classic before now, and wow is it a doozy. Starring greats such as William H. Macy, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, to name just a few, it involves a day in the life of a dozen or so characters on a collision course with fate and coincidence, and what they’ll learn about themselves and each other along the way. Fueled by raw emotion and melodrama, we were intrigued by the complex tale being woven before our eyes. If you haven’t seen it, check it out before we spoil it for you on this podcast, because it’s an amazing film.
