2022-08-20 • Saturday Matinée
Pete Wright, Mandy Kaplan, and Tommy Metz are back with big screen and small screen takes, a blockbuster round of the movie game, terrorizing trailers, and a list of much-panned movies that we love anyway!
First things first, Tommy gives permission to love The Sandman. Mandy does the same for Blackbird and The Most Hated Man on the Internet. Pete has lower praise for Surface but saves his powder for Luck, a film that tries so hard to be kind it makes you hate yourself for not loving it.
- Mandy’s Trailer: She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
- Pete’s Trailer: The Greatest Beer Run Ever (And along the way, Pabst Blue Ribbon did a documentary short on the true story so you can check out all these guys telling their story, made in 2015: Pabst Blue Ribbon Presents: The Greatest Beer Run Ever)
- Tommy’s Trailer: Fall
This week’s list is a parade of misguided movie disdain. We were handed the task of uncovering movies that are widely panned but that we like anyway, and Mandy and Pete delivered. Tommy… was present, but struggled to reach the very bottom of the barrel.
