The M&M Report: “Colossal”

On our latest episode, Devin and I had some thoughts on Colossal, a monster movie of sorts starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. But before that, we introduced a new segment!

The M&M Report: “The Edge of Seventeen” and “Manchester by the Sea”

On this episode of The M&M Report, Devin and I discuss two movies we both really enjoyed — well, perhaps that’s a strong word. Both tackle tough subjects in unsentimental fashion. But we found plenty to recommend in both.
