Special topics today include genre blending, Tiger King, a movie giveaway, and bidet’s.

Road to Perdition is an incredible film and a must watch if you have not seen it already. It’s currently streaming on Netflix. The cinematography is award winning, the casting is spot on, and the acting is on another level. Tom Hanks and Paul Newman, in his final role, play off of each other very well especially when they switch from friend to foe. Child actor at the time Tyler Hoechlin is incredible as the son of Mike Sullivan, Hanks, who witnesses a bit too much of his father’s work. Hoechlin has expanded his career greatly in the past 18 years and it is well deserved. Mike and Matt cannot give enough praise to this film. It is Sam Mendes’ second film after American Beauty and he has truly become one of the greatest directors working today. Mike and Matt both award 2002’s Road to Perdition 4.5 out of 5 Reels.
