All December long Jim and A.Ron will be bringing you First Rum Christmas! Settle in because your favorite hosts have an advent calendar of rum and some great Christmas movies to discuss. First up is David Harbour’s action/Xmas flick, Violent Night. With John Wick levels of violence and surprises up every chimney, this movie deserves a way better score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Brokeback Mountain is a movie that received a lot of attention, both from critics and the media, when it came out in 2005. That was likely just due just as much to it being a movie about two men in love that treated it like any other star-crossed relationship as it was the incredible performances of everyone involved, but specifically the lead actors. Join us for a discussion of this Oscar-winning film.
We’ve seen the only MCU movie about an Avenger to be posthumously titled with just their name, no subtitles, and we’re here to say that it’s still worth watching. Despite it being an origin story (of sorts) for an already-dead character and having a few third-act question marks, it manages to deliver on comedy, heart, thrills, and spectacle you want from a mainline Marvel hero story.
