Invincible S01E01 & S01E08

Thanks to Brian, we’ve got another commission this week. It’s the first and last episodes of Invincible season 1. You might not expect a bookended sampling of a series to work very well, but aside from not knowing a few of the side characters, I apparently missed out on almost nothing by skipping the other 6 episodes. Join us for a discussion of this animated deconstruction of the superhero genre.

Pig (2021)

If you’re going into this movie expecting a John Wick clone starring Nicolas Cage, you’re going to be surprised. Truly, I don’t know if there is a way to properly calibrate your expectations for Pig. It’s best to go in not knowing too much. Join us for the podcast to find out what we thought about it.

Southpaw (2015)

A big thank you to Dr. DeVito for commissioning Southpaw, the 2015 boxing movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a Raging Bull-type who just can’t get out of his own way while recovering from a traumatic accident. If you’ve seen any boxing movie ever made, you’ve seen some portion of this movie, as it borrows every trope you can think of. It does manage to deliver the emotional punches though, due mostly to the excellent cast.
