It’s Episode 82! Drunk Women Solving Crime (Hannah and Taylor) join us to review the 2017 documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton, Hannah’s choice. Jim & Andy is the result of several hours of filming Jim Carrey in ‘character’ behind the scenes on the set for the 1999 film Man on the Moon and Jim Carrey now ruminating on what happened literally and spiritually during the filming. This documentary was released by Netflix and the footage captured was allegedly wanted destroyed by Universal Pictures (who produced Man on the Moon) because they didn’t want people to think Jim Carrey was an asshole. You can begin to imagine what this documentary is like. Part car crash and part journey into the art involved in perfecting a performance, it’s also one mans tribute to a man he admired and occasionally imitated. Interesting, bizarre, intense and fascinating, it might be a documentary but it’s impossible to tell what is real and what is planned.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='84'] There was a lot of love for both Jim AND Andy from Flixwatcher and guests, if there is one word to describe it, it is fascinating - as a documentary and a film - and rare for a documentary rewards with repeat viewings. Jim & Andy scores overall a very high 4.31, we recommend! What do you guys think? Have you seen Jim & Andy? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

It has to be Putting on the Ritz, but there is no Gene Wilder version so we have added the Mel Torme Version!

It’s Episode 81! Alix Fox and Olly Mann from The Modern Mann podcast join Flixwatcher to review Alix’s choice the comedy drama the Fundamentals of Caring, the 2016 film starring Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts. Based on the book, The Revised Fundamentals of Caring, this film version stars Rudd as a carer to wheelchair user Roberts and also features Selima Gomez as a hitchhiker and love interest. While it may feel like the Fundamentals of Caring isn’t saying anything new on the road trip personal journey of development movie trope it does show people with disabilities as normal people, funny, witty humans with sexual desires.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='83'] The comedy moments may or may not make you piss your knickers but this road trip and personal journey is sweet and it’s heart in its right place, it’s a cosy indie film with strong performances from all the cast. Let down by a so-so soundtrack and a bit of an odd ending, but with a run time of one hour 37 minutes you can forgive those sins. The Fundamentals of Caring scores a strong 3.37 overall, recommended. What do you guys think? Have you seen The Fundamentals of Caring? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

This is Episode 80! Not Another Book podcast return, this time for Bookshybooks choice, 10 Cloverfield Lane, the second film in the Cloverfield franchise. 10 Cloverfield Lane is the J. J. Abrams produced 2016 film starring John Goodman (Howard) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Michelle). Following a car crash Michelle wakes up in a bunker, chained to her bed but receiving medical care, is Howard keeping her safe or keeping her prisoner? 10 Cloverfield Lane is at its best when it plays between psychological thriller and perceived horror, it’s let down when the aliens arrive. The tension hinges on Howard, Goodman is superb and the viewer is constantly questioning his intentions - is he really a saviour and keeping them safe or has he had multiple victims - there is no answer even at the end.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='82'] 10 Cloverfield Lane works great within its genre, it might not be treading new ground but it plays on its strengths well and Goodmans performance makes it very watchable. With five people in the studio scoring got a bit chaotic but overall it amazingly scored 3.42. There was a bit more love over on Twitter. What do you guys think? Have you seen 10 Cloverfield Lane?

It’s Episode 79! Ben (Top Film Tip) and George (Retro Ramble Podcast) return, this time for Ben’s choice the 2016 black comedy Catfight.
Catfight is a Greek tragedy of sorts, but mostly a black comedy punctuated with moments of Tom and Jerry style violence. It stars Anne Heche and Sandra Oh as two rivals who are reunited by chance and take out their frustrations of their own failings and jealousy of the other by basically beating the shit out of each other.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=81]Catfight received a mix reaction from Flixwatcher, but a lot of love from Ben, while it wasn’t to everyone’s taste there will be an audience for this nihilistic, very dark ultra violent film with extremely unlikeable characters. Overall Catfight scores 3.1 (not helped by a really low engagement score of 1.5 from Kobi), not too bad considering the overall lack of love. Miaow! What do you guys think? Have you seen Catfight? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

In episode 78 we’re joined by Picturehouse Podcast ladies Sarah and Corrina for Sarah’s choice Good Time. Good Time is the 2017 film starring Robert (can we stop mentioning Twilight yet?) Pattison as Connie, a small time thief who instigates a series of increasingly catastrophic events in one night after a failed bank robbery.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='80'] Good Time relies on the audience to truly suspend their belief and accept the path it embarks on without questioning its logic to an equally frenetic and dizzying soundtrack from Oneohtrix Point Never. With a run time of 99 minutes even the worst Netflix short attention span watchers should be able give it a view. Good Time scores highly across all the categories and scores 3.54 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Good Time? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
