2021-10-23 • Saturday Matinée

Steve Sarmento is in the big chair this week with Mandy Kaplan and Pete Wright. It’s Dune weekend, so of course we’re talking about theaters, box office, and shooting big. There’s a Breakfast Club reboot brewing… just kidding, there isn’t, but we talk about it anyway.

The streamers are trying to make us feel guilty about churning and returning but it turns out we’re doing it anyway. The bigger news this week is over at Netflix as the company deals with a walkout and controversy relating for its handling around the Dave Chapelle special.

Steve and Mandy Freaky Friday’d this week when it comes to trailers. No idea how it happened, but Mandy picked Cena.


This week’s list is all about movies in other movies. Whether we see a movie in production or characters watching a movie in the movie, it’s up for grabs this week.

Mandy’s List

  1. The Last Exorcism
  2. Singin’ in the Rain
  3. For Your Consideration

Steve’s List

  1. Hail, Caesar!
  2. State and Main
  3. The Last Shot

Pete’s List
