2022-10-22 • Saturday Matinée

The indomitable Kyle Olson leads Tommy Metz III and Pete Wright for a tour through franchises, trailers with numbers after them (mostly), and a game of pitches that leaves them in stitches!

But first, Tommy’s new short Static is in full festival mode, so he isn’t watching much other than other people’s horrors. Pete’s watching Andor pretty hard because it’s fantastic, and we haven’t talked enough about it on this show week to week.

It was a big franchise trailer week, though, so in light of Creed and John Wick successors, Kyle picked an indie doc. Not so on brand after all?


This week’s list brings you movies that are part of multiple-adaptation francises. Was it a book, opera, comic, or something else before it was a movie? Then it’s fair game for this list.

Kyle’s List

  1. Evil Dead
  2. The Three Musketeers
  3. Carrie

Tommy’s List

  1. And Then There Were None
  2. Hamlet
  3. Intolerable Cruelty

Pete’s List

  1. American Psycho
  2. Rent
  3. Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
