Greetings programs! This week, Matthew and Simon catch up with another summer blockbuster, diving headfirst into the sea with The Meg 2: The Trench and then visit South America with the upcoming satire El Conde.
This episode was produced during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labour of the writers and actors currently on strike, the films discussed here wouldn't exist.
This week on the bonus show, Simon asks which is the best and most important decade for film, and Matthew follows up with which filmmakers we get the most excited to hear they are adapting classic material.
The bonus show is available for all patrons to listen to, and the lowest support tier is just CAD $2/ month! Join us for some fun conversations!
