The Breakdown of 'Incredibles 2', 'Hereditary', 'Hotel Artemis', 'Alex Strangelove', and 'Ali's Wedding'
I hope dads everywhere had a great Father's Day and were able to spend some time with their families. Speaking of families, several of the movies we review this week have a major focus on familial bonds. We kick it off with a super heroic family in one of most hotly anticipated animated sequels in Incredibles 2. We also have something much darker, in a supernatural horror where Toni Collette plays a mother trying to protect her family while also uncovering some dark secrets in Hereditary. Then we have two bank robbing brothers who after a robbery goes bad end up in a hospital for criminals called Hotel Artemis. Love is in the air as well with two romantic comedies from Netflix in Alex Strangelove and Ali's Wedding. We had a great time recording this show and hope it is just as fun for you. And if it is, then please spread the word to other big movie fans, so we can help grow this show.

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.
