In case you have not heard, J.J. Abrams’ second installment in his version of the Star Trek universe is now in theaters. There seems to be some disagreement in the amount of enjoyment to be had. We parse it out. But we all agree on something much more fulfilling that allows and the audience to breathe (even godforbid, think) a bit.
Mike Jeff Nichols’ (Take Shelter, Shotgun Stories) new film, Mud, featuring the ever-on-a-roll, Matthew McConaughey as well as fine supporting work from Michael Shannon and Sam Sheppard. We discuss all plot and character points in both titles (that is your *SPOILER ALERT* folks) Thus, if you want to remain in the dark, please just stop by later this week (Thursday night) as Andrew and Kurt get back to doing the live video version of the show with a double helping of “Game of Thrones” recaps as well as the Watch List that will include [rec]3, Jack Reacher, Great Gatsby and Catch Me if You Can.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
