The Breakdown of 'The Predator', 'A Simple Favor', 'Searching', 'Sierra Burgess is a Loser' and 'Revenge'

This week's episode of The Movie Breakdown is really special, because it is one of those rare times were we record the show together in-person (just like we did all the time from 2013 to 2016). To celebrate such a big event, we are reviewing the latest big event movie in a hotly anticipate sequel in the sci-fi actioner, The Predator. We also have another picture geared towards adults in the thriller directed by Paul Feig in A Simple Plan. If you want discussion on more thrillers then we got you covered with two more in the mystery that unfolds on a computer screen in Searching and the bloody picture about a women hunting down some nasty men in Revenge. It was a blast to record the show this week and we really hope you love it. If you do, then helps us out by spreading the word to other movie fans.
