Grumpy Young Men

This week we’re reviewing on of the greatest action movies in recent memory, Mission: Impossible - Fallout. We talk about the incredible action sequences, the more video game-y aspects of the film, and Henry gives his thoughts on the franchise as a whole.

Also, yet another COVID Corner. (Recorded May 11th, 2020.)

Today we're talking about a series of comedy specials recently released on Netflix, Middleditch & Schwartz. We talk about what makes the improv comedy work so well in this long-form environment, shower endless praise onto both Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz, and we share some of our favorite bits throughout the three episodes.

Also, why we hate meat production disruption.

This week we review a cult classic of the science fiction genre, Blade Runner 2049. We discuss the fascinating world development between the two Blade Runner films, the drop-dead gorgeous visuals, and a Harrison Ford performance that feels at least somewhat not-phoned in.

Also, another COVID Corner. (This one was recorded April 20th, so it’s not really relevant anymore. Oops. Sorry.)

Today we’re back with some general Coronavirus talk, but this time we’re discussing our own personal quarantines, and what we’ve been doing to keep busy. We recommend various YouTube channels, games, movies, and general hobbies to get into. (Recorded May 6th, 2020.)
