Its Episode 104! Gareth and Miriam (fellow Shabbos Rollers quizzers at the Bigger Boat Film Quiz) return for Gareth’s choice, Gerald’s Game. Gerald’s Game is a 2017 Netflix film by Mike Flanagan based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. It stars Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood. A weekend away to spice up the marriage between Jessie and Gerald takes an unexpected and unfortunate turn when Gerald has a heart attack and dies, with Jessie handcuffed to the bed. This happens early on and the rest of the film is focused on whether Jessie will find the mental and physical strength to escape or will she die handcuffed to the bed. No spoilers here but let’s say the outcome is not for the faint-hearted or anyone really, it will take a certain strength to make it through.  

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='109'] Overall Gerald’s Game scored quite high from everyone apart from Miriam and takes a bit of a hit in the repeat viewing (when you’ve watched it you’ll know why!) but scores a very respectable 3.52 overall.

It’s Episode 103 and Flixwatcher are joined by British filmmakers Eran Creevy and Mat Whitecross to review the 2019 Netflix produced Triple Frontier. Triple Frontier boasts an all star cast of Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal, direction from J. C Chandor with the story by Mark Boal. They are a group of Special Operations soldiers who reunite for a heist to steal a lot of money from a South American drug lord.   The first half of the film is the classic get the gang back together and the second half is the fallout from them stealing more money than they expected to steal. Which is the films major downfall, the motivation for the heist is they think they deserve to steal this money that isn’t theirs and the chain of events are triggered by their bigger greed of stealing more than originally planned to take. If you can buy this as a major plot point then you’ll probably enjoy this film.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=108]Triple Frontier has all the elements that should make a great heist film but fails to deliver, it lacks the tension and surprise that is required to make this anything more than a standard action flick. Given the talent involved it is a massive disappointment. Overall Triple Frontier scores just 2.78.

It’s Episode 102 of Flixwatcher podcast. Kelly and Sam from Curzon Cinema Podcast to review Sam’s choice Thelma and Louise. Thelma and Louise is the 1991 Ridley Scott directed film written by Callie Khouri (Nashville) which won its only Oscar for Original Screenplay. It stars Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon in the title roles and a very famous and naked first appearance of Brad Pitt. A girls weekend away escalates quickly into a manhunt after Louise shoots a man who attempts to rape Thelma, they plan an escape to Mexico with Harvey Keitel’s potentially sympathetic police officer on their tail.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=107] Thelma and Louise is a feminist classic before making feminist classics was a thing, it’s ending is so ingrained in popular and film culture and it’s impossible not feel and love the two title characters. It has dated a little but that doesn’t detract from the films overall themes of friendship. Overall Thelma and Louise scores a very respectable 4.25.
