The M&M Report: “Hail, Caesar!”

Caesar.jpgDevin and I asked our friend Kevin Werner to rejoin us for a screening and discussion of “Hail, Caesar!” We enjoyed it, even if we weren’t quite sure and didn’t quite agree on what it all means.

The M&M Report, Episode 5: M&M at the Movies

Captain Phillips

What’s going on at the movies? Somali pirates, slave owners, folk singers, Wall Street tycoons and much more. Devin Mitchell and I stepped away from the small screen to go bigger this week. (Click the link to hear this week’s episode.)

First, we saw Captain Phillips together and talked about this movie’s uncompromising thrills and powerful performances. (Spoiler alert: we talk in detail about plot points and the ending in particular. Of course, the movie is based on real events, so nothing is really a spoiler, but if you prefer to know nothing going in, skip this segment.)

After that, I told Devin that he probably shouldn’t see The Fifth Estate, which comes out next Friday.

We closed with a Fall Movie Preview, in which we talked about upcoming movies, got really excited about great actors and found out that Devin doesn’t like fantasy and Mark doesn’t like excessive Oscar hype.
