The Breakdown of 'Atomic Blonde', 'Annabelle: Creation', 'The Dark Tower', 'The Incredible Jessica James', 'Icarus', 'Naked' and Remembering Jerry Lewis
It is a special Thursday episode of the Breakdown. But why are doing two episodes in one week? Well, if you haven't noticed the last month of shows have not had reviews for any new releases. This is due to the fact that we recorded them all before any of the August theatrical or Netflix movies came out. This is due to the fact that I was too busy chasing lobster and not falling off cliffs out in the beautiful Maritimes. I am back now, and it time to catch up on several of the movies that I missed. Today's show we have six reviews of relatively new releases that includes the latest chapter in the horror cinematic universe, Annabelle: Creation, as well as the romantic comedy The Incredible Jessica James, and the cold war actioner, Atomic Blonde. As well, we pay tribute to the comedy icon Jerry Lewis. As always if you enjoy the show, then please spread the word or give us a five star review on iTunes.
As well, both Scott and I apologize for the technical quality of this episode as we had major Skype issues and then some problem with the editing software. It is clunky in a few parts, but we still gab it up about the movies.
