The Breakdown of 'Kubo and the Two Strings', 'War Dogs', 'Ben-Hur', and 'Punk's Dead: SLC Punk 2'

Mid-August is supposed to be the time big studios unload their giant disasters but the Breakdown reviews some movies that are worth making the trek to cinemas (and a few disasters too). We review four 2016 releases this week including Laika Studio's latest animated feature, Kubo and the Two Strings and the 'based on a true story' dramatic comedy, War Dogs. As well, we review episode five of Stranger Things and look at the life and career of director Arthur Hiller. If you love the show then please spread the word to other movies fans looking for a fun movie review and discussion show.
