This week, we call Aaron Sorkin to the stand for his latest film The Trial of the Chicago 7, which is now on Netflix and stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and many more. We also find some time for love, or Love and Monsters to be specific, which stars Dylan O’Brien and Jessica Henwick. We discuss Spike Lee’s concert film, David Byrne’s American Utopia, which is now on HBO Max. Plus Spontaneous, a high school “sci fi black comedy” starring Katherine Langford and Charlie Plummer. And finally, The Kid Detective, a dark comedy starring Adam Brody and Sophie Nélisse.
It’s a little spooky how positive we are on Hubie Halloween, the newest Netflix film starring Adam Sandler and a whole host of other recognizable actors and comedians. We keep the horror comedy vibe going with our review of The Wolf of Snow Hollow, the final film starring Robert Forster. Then we go back to Netflix to watch The 40-Year-Old Version, a Sundance hit starring Radha Blank, who also directed the film. On HBO Max, there’s Charm City Kings, a fun dirt bike racing drama starring Jahi Di’Allo Winston and Meek Mill. And finally, Will welcomes us to “Welcome to the Blumhouse,” a new Amazon Prime Video slate of horror movies starting with The Lie.
