Breakdown of 'Aliens', 'Snatched', 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword', 'Before Sunrise' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End'

It is a week of franchises on the The Breakdown. We have the iconic sequel to the classic original in James Cameron's war picture featuring xenomorphs in Aliens. We also have the final chapter of a trilogy that turned out way better than what many may have assumed with Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Then we have a franchise that is a classic among critics but not as well known in mainstream sequels with the original in Richard Linklater's romantic classic, Before Sunrise. Plus we have reviews for two new releases in Amy Schumer's latest comedy, Snatched, and the wannabe franchise launcher in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. As always if you enjoy the show then please spread the word to other movie lovers or give us a five star review over on iTunes. We really appreciate you listening to us every week.
