It is the end of a long weekend in the United States and that means a big movie was just released. This time we go an even longer time ago in a galaxy far, far away with the origin story of a popular iconic movie character in Solo: A Star Wars Story. We review that big movie as well as three Netflix originals. We talk about the Martin Freeman starring Australian zombie movie called Cargo. We also have a South African romantic comedy in Catching Feelings. We finish our global tour with an Italian drama called Forgive Us Our Debts. From there, both Scott and I admit we are old and that maybe not all movies are targeted towards us. So, we discuss if a film critic should reviews movies that are not designed for their demographic or personal tastes. As always, we had a great time recording the show and we hope you loved it, and if you did then please spread the word to other movie fans.
Reminder that you can now subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes.
We apologize but there won't be any outline for The Movie Breakdown, due to the crazy mystery that the media player runs different times and so the timestamps have no value. If you know how to solve this problem then it would be greatly appreciated.
Question of the Week: What movie were you dreading to see but when you eventually did, you really liked it?
