Movie Review Podcast

Article audio is made possible by CAST11 Prescott Podcast Network. A Talking Glass Media production.

Happy Wednesday everyone! We are halfway there, well some of us. Today Matt and Mike sit down and chat about a star studded crime thriller hitting theaters and HBO Max, The Little Things. Starring Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto. Bonus topics today include two Brad’s, margarita’s, and Se7en.

If you are nostalgic for the crime dramas of the 90’s like Se7en or The Usual Suspects then boy do we have a movie you will enjoy, the rest of you probably not. Is The Little Things a bad film, no, it is just nothing special. It really should have been better. The performances were amazing but that is to be expected from three Oscar winners. The story is where this movie lacks. It is not bad, just really could use a boost. It drags multiple times and leads you half way down several roads with no end in sight. The Little Things is not worth going to the theater to watch but if you have HBO Max it is well worth it just for the performances. The guys are finally back to normal. Mike gives the film 2.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt finally beats Mike out giving the new flick a 3 out of 5 Reels.

Next week is Matt’s pick and he chose a horror movie, really? Freaky, written and directed by the guy that brought us Happy Death Day, puts a horror spin on the body swap concept. This is a horror comedy starring Vince Vaughn you don’t want to skip. You can buy or rent it on digital download today. Thank you for supporting our podcast and we will chat at you next week.
