The Breakdown of 'The Old Guard', 'Zodiac', 'Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga' and 'Little Monsters'
After several very special episodes of The Movie Breakdown, we return to our traditional format with four movie reviews this week. We have what Netflix is touting as a summer blockbuster in the Charlize Theron starring immortal mercs actioner, The Old Guard. It isn't summertime without a star-driven comedy, Will Ferrell teams up with Rachel McAdams in Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. We also have a horror comedy where Lupita Nyong'o protects her Kindergarten students from zombies in Little Monsters. In one of the most revered movies of the 2000s, we discuss David Fincher's based on true events thriller, Zodiac. After that we discuss what we think will be the future of movie theatres and new releases for the remainder of 2020.
As always, we had a blast recording this week's show and we really hope you love it. If you do, we would really appreciate you spreading the word on social media to other movie fans.
