Before the plot was even known. horror and movie fans were salivating over the release of Jordan Peele's follow-up to Get Out in his sophomore movie, Us. It is finally here, and we review it this week. We also discuss J.C. Chandor's latest in the heist thriller starring Ben Affleck and Oscar Isaac in Triple Frontier. Then we review a historical drama about real life hero Francesc Boix who saved thousands from concentration camps during World War II in The Photographer of Mauthausen. We also look at the official Disney purchase of Fox and analyze at all the implications that will have on the movie industry. From there, we talk Netflix again as we decide if the streamer really is good for independent filmmakers. As always, we had a great time recording the show and we really hope you love it. As always, you can show your appreciation by spreading the word to other movie fans.
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 (if you enjoy the show, please help us by giving us a five star review).
