Special guest Charlie Ridgely of Comicbook.com joins the show for a death-defying review of Spike Lee’s new joint Da 5 Bloods, which is now streaming on Netflix. We also answer a listener question, rant about Artemis Fowl (now on Disney+), and finish things out with a balanced discussion of Judd Apatow’s new dramedy The King of Staten Island starring Pete Davidson and Bill Burr, which just came out on VOD.

Why am I bawling my eyes out right now.
Mickey never really came back from that Vault.
Charlie is such a great guest (and actor?!) I really appreciate how you guys have been handling the show these last few months. I’m so sick of other film pods spending like an hour dwelling on “the current moment” instead of using that time to talk about new movies. There are tons coming out and for some reason most of the film pods I follow are acting like only two movies have come out since March. So thanks.
I’m really glad you guys had Charlie on for The King of Staten Island. It was really refreshing to hear from someone who has such a personal connection to a movie like this, and it made me want to see the movie (I did, and I really liked it for the reasons Charlie points out).
