If your loved ones were hurt in an unspeakable act of violence, how far would you go for justice? Lucky for Snooty and Goon, they don't have any loved ones (not even each other). But they both love Jackie Chan, and this week they're digging into this political thriller!
Another blast from the distant past gets its sequel, which is set even further in the far-flung future. Confused? Good! Now try to wrap your head around the line drawn between human and non-human in a world where humans make humanlike non-humans to do human jobs that humans don't want to do. Then throw in examinations on the unreliability of and ownership of memories, environmental conservation in a post-environment world, human interaction with marketable non-physical companions, and the extreme convenience of flying cars. Is that too much for you? Don't worry! Snooty and Goon are here to break it all down.
It's a true story, and an incredible story, but is it a good story to make into a movie? Snooty and Goon grapple with that question as they follow the exciting life and times of Tom Cruise as a patriotic smuggler extraordinaire!
Editor's Note: Snooty can't correctly say the last name of director Doug Liman because he's secretly also a goon. Don't tell anyone.
And for a shorter version of the film...
For this next film in the irreverent spy film franchise, Snooty and Goon call upon Captain Action to break everything down. With breakneck pacing and impeccable fight choreography, can the Kingsman sequel live up to its predecessor? Find out with us!
Telling you even a single thing about this movie risks spoiling the experience for you. If you have any interest at all in seeing it, do it first, and then join Snooty and Goon for a complicated journey through this dense, divisive, bizarre film that should never have been marketed the way it was.
Romantic comedies need charming leads, chemistry between those leads, wacky hijinx to connect them, and a script that builds toward some kind of emotional payoff. But Home Again has the courage to ask, "Can a rom-com survive with NONE of those ingredients?" Snooty and Goon sit down with the film to discover that the answer to that brave question is...no.
Men and Women! Media and Politics! Life and Death! Titanic themes clash in this fast-talking, quick-witted screwball comedy from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Armed with their stolen WABAC, Snooty and Goon take a trip to yesteryear to visit a time when comedies were still actually funny on purpose.
200 episodes! That's a lot of time to waste on talking about movies. But instead of visiting the highs, the lows, and the talking points of something recent, Snooty and Goon instead share their darkest secrets: the guilty pleasure movies they can't resist. Somewhere beyond good cinema, beyond bad cinema, and beyond so-bad-it's-good cinema, lies movies like these, the guilty pleasures you can't defend but can never give up.
August gets its first real mindless action comedy, and Snooty and Goon are ready for it. With two of today's funniest action stars on hand to liven things up, can The Hitman's Bodyguard protect us from boredom for its two-hour runtime? Almost.
Goon is denied his Aubrey Plaza fix and forced instead to go with his backup. He and Snooty brave the frontier of the American Indie Darling, a world filled with "true" stories, hard childhoods, bitter and complicated adults, and a formula every bit as predictable as the summer blockbusters that will crush it at the box office. Let's all go to The Glass Castle, y'all!
With seven novels, a novella, more short stories, and connections to the majority of King's body of works available to them, this film's producers had a plethora of iconic moments and characters to draw upon for crafting a dynamic, heart-pounding rendition of the author's most ambitious work. Too bad all we got was 95 minutes of growling and exposition. Join Snooty, Goon, and Captain Action on a breakdown of this thrill-an-hour film extravaganza!
