The Breakdown of 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters', 'The Perfection', 'Good Sam' and 'Knock Down the House'

We are just a few weeks away from our 300th episode. But we still have lots of movie goodness to discuss until then. We have a huge summer movie this week in the big monster mash sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. We also review three Netflix originals in the twisty thriller, The Perfection, a new romcom called Good Sam and a political documentary in Knock Down the House. After the movie reviews, we also discuss why big studios seem to only greenlight original ideas (e.g: non-franchise, based on other works) for horror and animated features. Plus as a special teaser, there is a movie we really disagree on and it leads to a pretty passionate debate, You'll have to listen to decide who you think was right. Despite the throwdown, we had an amazing time recording the show and we really hope you love it. If you do, then please spread the word on social media.

Reminder that you can 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).
