The Breakdown of 'Crazy Rich Asians', 'Alpha', 'Mile 22', 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' and 'Brij Mohan Amar Rahe'

This week on The Movie Breakdown, we're reviewing five 2018 movies. The big one is the romantic comedy with an almost entire Asian cast in Crazy Rich Asians. We also have a cave boy and his dog adventure in Alpha. Mark Wahlberg is looking for adventure in the Peter Berg directed actioner, Mile 22. We've got the latest Lily James starring romance picture in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. As well, we review the latest movie to come out of India in Brij Mohan Amar Rahe. After all the movie reviews, I finally reveal my picks for the three movies that Scott must watch and review for losing The Summer Box Office Challenge. It was a blast to record this week and we really hope you love it as well. If you do enjoy it then please spread the word to other movie fans,
