WHYBW – What Have You Been Watching?
Mysteries, murder, and rebellion on the menu at the Nighthawks Diner for a discussion of what Matt and Trevor have been watching. Pull up a seat in the Nighthawks booth and grab a heaping helping of pod-fodder.
Confess, Fletch– Is it a book adaptation, a Chevy Chase sequel, neither, or both? John Hamm dons the Los Angeles Lakers hat of the mononymed Fletch, a former investigative reporter of some note. A retired fletch is on the heels of an art theft when he finds a dead woman in his rental. What is a guy to do?
Dahmer- Important question: does a rapist, murderer, terrorist, criminal, cannibal deserve an on-screen treatment this good? This one left us feeling a little funny.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery– Rian Johnson continues his unimpeachable record for mystery films with the first Benoit Blanc sequel, starring the absolutely fabulous Daniel Craig and the stone cold Janelle Monet, with a supporting cast that will leave your jaw on the floor.
Ti West’s X and Pearl- A high quality slasher with overtones of 70s pornography AND it’s early 20th Century Wizard of Oz prequel in this same year?! It’s true! The guys talk about the latest horror sensation and Trevor confesses his complicated feelings about the films of Ti West.
Andor- Matt says it’s the best Star Wars property in a while. Do you agree? He makes the case for the story about the roots of rebellion, currently playing on Disney+.
