Welcome to episode 165 of the Intermission Podcast, brought to you by Movieguys.org. This week the Movie Guys talk about thumbs, Ozarks on Netflix, a movie, and another movie! We almost forgot to talk about the Dark Tower, that’s how good it was apparently. Enjoy.
Guy went to a car show, drag race, swap meet, and burnout contest this weekend. He was really excited and tells us all about it. I didn’t listen, sorry. Somebody talks about Masterminds. It’s a movie about a thing, they seemed to like it.
Netflix and Disney
Disney announced their decision to pull out of Netflix. They should really know that that is not the best way to prevent pregnancy, but I guess if that’s all you got. Craig doesn’t think that this will hurt Netflix any as they are switching core demographics and are going more towards adult oriented original programming. It still makes Guy mad though. Speaking of Netflix, Craig looked up their hard disk movie rental and was happy to see that for $4.99 a month you can have one DVD at a time rented out. He was then less pleased to find out that that is true if you only wish to have two DVD’s total a month. They do cap monthly rentals at two and who only watches two movies a month? We are going to go burn Netflix down now.
Ozarks on Netflix
While we are on the topic of Netflix, Josh has been watching Ozark and he likes it. He does complain though that since the Intern and Craig are so far ahead of him that we can’t all talk about it. We can’t spoil it for Josh and kinda forget what happened way back in episode one. We’ve ruined water cooler talk. Josh suggest we set up a weekly schedule of shows.
Josh then goes on to ruined movie trailers. Not one specific one, but all of them. We have all decided to stop watching them now, except for Guy. We are okay with kicking Guy out of the Movie Guys though, it’s about time.
The Dark Tower
As I said, we almost forgot to talk about Josh, Guy, Corey, and the Intern going to watch The Dark Tower. The first half was good, but the second half completely fell apart. It had potential but was ruined by putting eight books into one hour and a half movie. And Josh said it didn’t really have anything to do with the books. But Josh is maybe wrong? Josh didn’t like that the big hero had to be led around by some little kid like the story was caught between an adult suspense and a teenage action. Basically, he thought that the kid was a useless GPS.
Also this week, the Movie Guys (minus Craig) all met up at Corey’s house this week and watched Belko Experiment. It was about a small office building in Argentina or something that was full of American workers when they get trapped inside and are forced to fight to the death. There were eighty people in the building and we think that they showed every death. The group consensus was that it was good, not great but good.
