The Breakdown of 'The Nun', 'Peppermint', 'The After Party', 'The Motive' and Remembering Burt Reynolds

The big summer movie season is over and now is the time when some more adult-geared movies start coming our way. Sometimes that means really high quality movies and other times it means gut-punching disappointments. It also means that this week on The Movie Breakdown that we have four 2018 movie reviews for you. The big one is a horror movie set in the Conjure-verse with the latest spin-off from that major franchise in The Nun. We also have a revenge action picture starring Jennifer Garner in Peppermint. Do you want some rap in your life? Fine, we've got an alleged comedy about an aspiring rapper in The After Party. We also head to Spain with that country's latest offering on Netflix in The Motive. After the reviews, we pay tribute to one of the biggest movie stars of the 1970s and a true icon in Burt Reynolds. As always if you enjoy the show then please help us out by spreading the word to other movie fans.
