The Breakdown of 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', 'The Blues Brothers', 'The King', 'Loser' and 'The Endless'
We are jumping into the time machine this week on The Movie Breakdown as we record this episode in person just like we did from 2013 to 2016. You know what else we did back then, we often picked a lot of older movies rather than trying to review every Netflix Original movie. We kick off this new era of reviewing some older movies with a bang as we have the horror cult hit that played a part in birthing the slasher genre in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. We also have an ambitious comedy that was a huge hit and was the first to turn a successful Saturday Night Live sketch into a feature in The Blues Brothers. We've loved two Amy Heckerling coming-of-age comedies, and so will the streak continue with Loser? We still have a Netflix Original to review in the historical epic, The King. Finally, we discuss a twisty thriller mixed with horror indy picture in The Endless.
As always, we really appreciate you listening to us this week and we hope you love the show. If you do, then please support use by spreading the word to other movie fans.
