    The thing about the second Strangers movie wasn't the 80's aesthetic, but the TERRIBLE choices the characters made. My brother and I watched it and continuously screamed at the TV in anger and bewilderment. I would recommend that any horror fan watch the first movie, but for the love of god don't pay to see the second one.

    I enjoy your reviews, and respect your opinions. I'll be upfront about being a big Summer of 84 fan since Sundance. This review of it (23:12) was pretty frustrating to watch because I got the feeling that Mike might have actually quite liked the film, but almost every time he was about to say something supportive, Jay just bulldozed over him interrupting him to repeat something about stranger things and 'done with nostalgia in general' . The film qualities, its ending, its potential deeper meaning, was barely discussed at all, and really only attempted by Mike. Also from reviews I've read, I am not alone in disagreeing with Jay about this: I thought the kids' chemistry and excellent portrayals of the reality of neighborhood summer friendships, and their acting in general, was one of the best parts of the first half of the film. By not even being able to distinguish the kids, this review came across like Jay had dismissed it before he really watched it. Will look forward to more reviews, but had to comment here -I felt like only one opinion was heard.

    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.

    ?? 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

    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.

    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.

  • One Opinion

    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.

    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.
