The Breakdown of 'Skyscraper', 'Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation', 'The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter' and Remembering Tab Hunter
We are already halfway through July and the kids are getting deep into their holidays now. The Movie Breakdown has reviews for three big summer movies. We've got the latest grand Dwayne Johnson action picture in the very heavily Die Hard inspired, Skyscraper. We also have the latest animated adventure in Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. As always we discuss a Netflix original, this time it is the Josh Brolin and Danny McBride starring father and son dramedy, The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter. As well, we discuss the news of two different production companies greenlighting a movie about the Thai cave rescue and debate if it is ethical or insensitive to push through making a movie before the events are even fully over. We also look at the career of Tab Hunter and discuss the history of how Hollywood handled the personal lives of their star. As always, we had a great time recording this show and we really hope you love it. If you did, then please help us out by telling others about it.
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 is your favourite childhood memory of going to the theatre?
