Grumpy Young Men

Today we’re talking about the Amazon original series based on the book of the same name co-authored by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens. We discuss the solid acting/casting, the absurd plot and side plots, and wonder exactly how gay this truly is.

Also, why we hate the return of the table tennis.

This week we discuss the experimental independent film You Were Never Really Here. We touch on the film’s themes of PTSD, the unique anti-violence decisions Lynne Ramsay and the other filmmakers did, and how gosh darn good of an actor Joaquin Phoenix is.

Also, why we hate this year’s box office thus far.

This week we’re covering the least-talked-about Star Wars film, Solo. We talk about the unique character of Han Solo, the swashbuckling nature of the film, and the sometimes questionable homages and references to other Star Wars movies. 

Also, why we hate unpaid college athletics.
