This Week in Movies ("TWiM")
Summary: A weekly podcast with two brothers and a cousin who discuss movies new to the box office top 10, and movies we're excited about. http://www.thisweekinmovies.com
In addition to a deep dive discussion of US, we also review new to the box office top 10 including Wonder Park, Five Feet Apart, No Manches Frida 2, and Captive State. We also take a look at what’s coming next week in wide release including The Beach Bum, Dumbo, Unplanned, and Hotel Mumbai.
We’re off to our usual start talking about boobs - don’t ask me why. We pull back the curtain and explain some of our inside jokes from last week when we teased Andy for kissing a 50 yr old married woman on the TWIM cruise. Andy shares his theory about Brazilian women. We discuss why we feel violated when other men peep at us in a public urinals, and wonder if that makes us homophobic.
Some apologies: 1. Poor audio quality because we were on a cruise ship 2. We reference some inside jokes because on the cruise, Andy had a fling with a beautiful 50 yr old who looks like J-lo. 3. Tardy release - sorry - it was difficult to edit and get it posted while on the cruise. In this episode we speculate why hot women marry ugly men We discuss whether Greta satisfies the Bechdell test We tease 40 yr old Andy for kissing a 50 yr-old J-lo look-a-like the night before we recorded the podcast. Warning - if you haven’t seen Avengers infinity war, we spoil this movie with no warning. But seriously this movie has been out for a year if you haven’t seen it by now you’re not going to see it.
Apologies for releasing a few days late. In this episode, we can’t help ourselves, we keep letting boob jobs and sexbots enter our discussion so there was some editing to do. Samuel L Jackson is a polarizing movie character; We do a deep dive and separate spoiler of how to train your dragon, preview of greta, mini review of Madea Family Funeral, and preview of Captain Marvel.
Why Seth believes that the human population would go extinct in a world like Alita where sexbots could be manufactured. Why Seth thinks that boob jobs have become so ubiquitous that having natural breasts have become more rare and therefore more beautiful Why Jason Statham proves Seth and Andy are of the worlds hottest men Why the final victory in fighting with my family was, perhaps, meaningless on closer inspection.
Hear how Ben’s 7-yr old daughter put rowdy movie-goers in their place by mocking them; hear Ben’s fool-proof strategy for breaking up with a girl; the wrong assumption we made about whether women were responsible for the raunchy jokes in Isn't It Romantic
Find out why our family finds this podcast too edgy to listen to. Also, why Ben will go to the bad place even though he doesn’t swear. Deep dive review of Lego 2, Cold Pursuit, and What Men Want.
