    So essentially, Jay wanted Unsane to be exactly like every mental hospital movie ever made. I personally thought that Soderbergh was tapping into some really important themes. Mental hospitals can in fact be prone to manipulation. Money is involved more so than actual help or science. Between this and his tweets about My Friend Dahmer, he can be kind of unimaginative sometimes.

    How the hell has Jay not seen Breaking Bad? That doesn't even seem possible.

    Watched Upgrade cause this video. Was real good, I enjoyed probably too much. I thought having the AI be so limited and dependent was a neat view of things.

    Alternate title to Director's Cut: "Mr. Plinkett Makes a Movie"

    Jay has never seen Breaking Bad?!? The best show in the history of television??!!?? Oh, Jay... I am disappoint.

    Not Tom Hardy in Upgrade Trailer
    Tom Hardy in Venom Trailer
    Both are shockingly similar.

    I totally agree with Stranger Things. Season 2 ruined something great.

    ?? Why is Jay saying it was clear early in the movie whether or not the stalker thing was real or wasn't? It wasn't confirmed until maybe the last 20 minutes. Before that it does a great job of keeping you guessing, IMO

    Bone Tomahawk & Brawl in Cell Block 99 are both boring trash and S. Craig Zahler is a complete hack who writes like an edgy child.

    • nd4spd

      Much of the time they're not even laughably bad, although they do have a couple moments. Mostly tedious.

    Thanks for mentioning Bone Tomahawk, it was a fucking amazing slow-burn western and you need to see it. When it came out on Netflix it was rated PG13 due to either an error or just someone not watching the last ten minutes of it, so the ending had extra punch when I viewed it.

    It's really sad when the only movies Red Letter review are either "B" movies or horror stories. I mean , what else can they review? Reboots of the Marvel universe?. How about another Star Wars movie? There's nothing good to review!

    I'll love if you guys devote an entire episode to "Mandy." I saw it today, and I experienced an amazing gamut of emotional and physical reactions, including dread, fear, excitement, sadness, bliss, anger, sickness and revulsion, and surprisingly even hilarity and joy. I never thought I'd see the Nicolas Cage of Vampire's Kiss, Raising Arizona and Wild at Heart on screen again, but the thirty year wait was worth it. I predict it will be on the short list of Jay's favorite films of 2018. (Mike, maybe not so much, though I suspect he'll at least like it.)

    I think they raised a really great point with the comment about comedy films not pushing boundaries anymore. Is that because of the outrage culture we currently find ourselves in? In order to make jokes that are truly out there, you mostly have to risk offending someone along the way, because comedians often take a situation or state and frame it in a way that others wouldn't usually see, thus challenging people's views .. Interesting.
    Genuinely can't think of a funny film I saw recently. Superbad is an all-time favourite, Hot Fuzz too. 40-year-old virgin is great too. I'm struggling to think of one that was released in the last year or two that I found hilarious. If anyone reading this fancies a good laugh by a genuinely brilliant and creative comic, watch James Acaster's stand ups on Netflix. Belly laughs throughout.

    Bone Tomahawk for me, was overhyped. I fell asleep watching it the first time. When I rewatched it seemed less clunky. In regards to the "scene" everyone talks about. It was jarring but not that great in it's execution. It looked like a wax figure. They needed more time to perfect that prop. Just one man's opinion.

    Hey, Jay likes Synthwave. At least his taste in music is better than his taste in movies.

    Summer of 84 is literally interesting for five minutes and that's at the end of the movie. The "thing" that happens could have been set earlier and played out for the rest of the film.

    Hmm... has everyone forgotten just how much of an anti-80's thing there was through the 90's? I know Wedding Singer was an early 80's 'retro' movie, but at least part of it was making fun of the decade. I can recall being told my multiple people in the 90's that pretty much everything in the 80's sucked. I used to point out that the same thing happened towards the 70's in the 80's (which had become cool again by the 90's) and would bet them that the same thing would happen to the 80's in a few years. In fact, I'm probably owed a great deal of money...
    However, I agree with Jay that the whole retro thing has gone too far. Setting something in the past because 'we like the era and can use the music' doesn't really serve a purpose.

    20:20 what is mike talking about here? Theres literally a part where the robot asks Grey what to do after the fight with the dude with the mustache because "all tactical options have been relieved" or somwthing. I feel like mike was half paying attention to the movie lol. He said you could predict what was gonna happen but at the same time the twist saved it? And I get what he means by the guy is back and forth with being confident and being stressed but I've seen many people irl who are like that who THINK they have a situation handled but they realize the situation is not as easy as it seems.

    I loved UPGRADE. One thing I thought was silly was at the end when stem takes over his body after breaking his mind, he moves super stiff and robotic. The thing is we've already seen stem control the body a bunch of times at that point and it didn't look like that. I know they were just trying to visually drive home the point that Grey is gone and stem is triumphant, but it wasn't necessary.

    Of all these movies (PT 1 and 2) I would only see Director's Cut (and Turbo Kid but that isn't being reviewed). I kind of like stranger things, but the thing I like about it most is that all episodes all come out at once. And I liked that "waste of 45 minute episode" yall were talking about. AND the original puppet master movies, the puppets were based on people the nazi's killed, so they weren't nazis.

    Yeah, wasn't a huge fan of Please Stand By, it might actually be one of the worst of the year for me. Besides what you said, it's getting a little dull seeing every autistic person on film and TV being portrayed as Rain Man. Not offensive exactly, just boring. Plus the plot was basically the same plot as Riding The Bus With My Sister, just with Star Trek references put in and a not as cringeworthy lead performance.

    I have to weigh in on Upgrade, and the comment Mike makes about it feeling low budget. I saw this movie after having seen Solo, and for the fact that it's entire budget was probably less than what was spent on the Centipede crime boss at the beginning of Solo, and yet it looked so compelling. It retroactively made me mad at Solo (which i had been...fine...with.) That this Disney movie could light hundreds of millions of dollars on fire and get this "meh" outcome whilst Upgrade was so damn compelling--gah! Upgrade was great and the end was a damn punch in the face.

    Please go see The Nun! It's mostly terrible jump scares but in the last ten minutes it becomes Brendan Fraser Mummy-esque action-comedy and how they defeat the demon had me laughing so hard I cried and thought I was gonna get kicked out.

    24:00 That's basically what happened! I saw the directors of Summer of '84 at a film festival, and they explained that this script was written and pitched to them well before Stranger Things came out. It was unfortunate timing. Next on their plate is Turbo Kid 2.

    Re: "Upgrade"
    Yeah, it couldn't shake its low budget feel. Also, for the most part it played its themes in such a lighthearted way that the ending felt too dark and bleak to me. Anyone who knows me knows that I love dark material, but in this case the ending just didn't match its overall tone.

    Okay, this could just be me, but like, ya know how Logan Marshall Green and Tom Hardy are like exactly the same person? It seems really strange to me that LMG did Upgrade and Tom Hardy did Venom at the same time, as they are both movies in which the protagonist is controlled by something inside him that turns him into a murder machine. Just sayin... anyone else?
