2022-05-14 - Saturday Matinée Lobby Card

2022-05-14 • Saturday Matinée

Ray DeLancey, Kyle Olson, and Rob Kubasko are on the big show this week and they bring the fantasy.

First, apparently, Sonic 2 is fun. If you have a family to serve as an excuse that keeps you from having to watch it by yourself, you should see it. We’re still watching Moon Knight, Picard, and Strange New Worlds, and this weekend we’re doing a little Tatum with the Paramount+ drop of The Lost City.

And, did you hear? Walken is joining Dune.

We’ve got a little Star Wars stuff coming with the impending release of Kenobi, and you heard it here first: The new Lego Star Wars game slaps.


Last week, Ocean, Krissy, and Tommy fought off sadness by paying forward a list of movies in which you end up rooting for the bad guy, or unhappy ending. And you know what? It turns out we’re real downers who love movies like this.

Ray’s List

  1. X-Men: Days of Future Past
  2. King Kong (1933)
  3. The Last Temptation of Christ

Kyle’s List

  1. Black Panther
  2. The Rock
  3. Ghostbusters

Rob’s List

  1. Cast Away
  2. Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
  3. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
