An American remake of a 2011 foreign film that people could watch anyway if they just turned on subtitles? How could this not be a huge hit?!? Well, Snooty and Goon are here to tell you how.
Breaking News! It's 2018, and the government is still at war with news media! Join Snooty and Goon as they watch Spielberg's historical, allegorical, illuminative take on a 1970s scandal and its implications for the world today. And to make sure you pay attention, it stars Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep!
It's the final review of the year, and that can only mean one thing: one last chance for Snooty and Goon to argue over the release of a holiday feel-good family musical. Once they're done tearing each other to shreds, stick around for their best and worst picks of 2017!
And for even more musical explorations...
"Quality" is a tricky word to apply to art. Is it the measure of a work's objective merit, or is it closer to the broader reaction of the work's audiences? That question spawned the entire film genre of "So Bad It' s Good," and there is perhaps no better example than the subject of this based-on-a-true-story film. Join Snooty, Goon, and Substream Magazine's Leigh Monson as they pick apart the picking apart of the best-worst film ever made!
What do you do with a dark comedy that isn't funny, a thriller that isn't thrilling, a mystery with no mystery, and a satire with nothing to say? You call it Suburbicon! Join Snooty and Goon as they bemoan this misfire of a movie, which gets it wrong from start to finish.
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.
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!
The only thing better than a nail-biter of a car chase is having just the right song blasting on the radio to accompany it. Hit the road with Snooty and Goon as they cruise through Edgar Wright's latest movie. It may have some potholes, but it's a hell of a ride.
How do you update a 90s kids TV classic? You keep the attitude and the teenagers, but toss in some angst, drama, big-budget effects, and...bloodshed? Snooty and Goon are joined by Professor Science as they tackle the latest Hollywood trip down memory lane to receive a big screen treatment.
Love, like gravity, is the only phenomenon capable of transcending space and time. And gravity, like love, will take your oversized heart and kill you with it. Join Snooty and Goon as they pick apart this whirlwind teen romance that's two parts road trip and one part bad science.
