Palm Springs



To film spotting the last couple of weeks. Josh have seen some of the most high profile new releases we've had since movie theater shutdown back. In March Hamilton arrived on Disney plus two weeks ago. We talked about that on last week's episode also last week. I recommended Gina Prints by woods, the old guard with Charlene Darren. That came to Netflix's weekend. And that's when you caught up with Josh and they understand. You liked it. Maybe not as enthusiastically as I did, but you went forward. Okay? Yeah, consider me. Me a fan, I think I probably became a little more wearied by the gunplay. Which you mentioned was your talked about it probably a little more than you did, but yeah, definitely appreciated and think it's something that people should check out. Last weekend also saw the release of the World War Two thriller Greyhound with Tom Hanks that's on apple, plus neither of us have had a chance to see that yet, but fellow critics have assured us that the nation's fathers and grandfathers have a new favorite movie and Josh. Also last weekend, the new horror film relic available on demand. Palm Springs. The groundhog day inspired comedy which is available on. You saw relic. We both saw Palm Springs, and we'll give each of those a little bit of time later in the show, but first tires. Please cue up our review discussion of Christopher. Interstellar. We haven't mentioned our mission does not work if the people on our dead by the time you pull it off. That this far any human history, not far no! Doubt. Yes, you are yes, you are. Upon, its release in two thousand fourteen atom, we gave interstellar a robust thirty minute review. You were hugely enthusiastic. I was mixed to negative. You remain a big Fan and you've seen it sense I believe right. Yeah, all right in two thousand seventeen. They're going meter. Yup, at the music box theatre where it's going to be playing again this weekend actually here in Chicago in seventy millimeter interstellar currently ranked number two on your Nolan. List for me this. Who've review was my first revisit sense two thousand fourteen now on the two of us. The movie has a score of seventy four. Critic among critics that's considered generally favorable, and for what it's worth. Most of Nolan's movies hover around the seventies on metacritic Dunkirk. That's his highest rating there with a ninety four. So that's where we stood. But where do we stand now in two thousand twenty? Have you add them passed through a wormhole and come out on the other side to see the error of your ways have I been sucked into a black hole trapped behind some cosmic bookshelf as punishment until I admit the air of mine. We could relitigate are twenty fourteen debate. We could revisit the same points. We both brought up, but I'm not sure how fruitful that would be I'm happy to do some of that and I promise I will not bring up a certain nineteen, sixty eight sci-fi epic. You declared verboten when discussing interstellar listeners, they can revisit that whole discussion in the archives at film spotting dot net episode five fifteen. Today. I'd like to start where that review ended in a last-minute attempt to bring me on board Adam. You asked me if I wasn't just plain thrilled watching interstellar. If setting aside my complaints quibbles, I couldn't admit to having a thrilling movie going experience. I quickly answered in the negative and we moved on. Watching interstellar again, and this was before I, release into I review or even read what I had written about in two thousand fourteen. This was the exact question I found myself asking especially in the context of our overview with so many Nolan films fresh in my mind at their best. His movies do thrill me. They get me Giddy. There's always a moment. Nolan blows your Noggin, intellectually emotionally existential early, and all I can do is let out a Guffaw of appreciation. We've already talked about some of these. These moments in our overview. I think of Memento where Leonard says I'm chasing this guy. Nope he's chasing me. Or how about the image of the hats in the prestige? When we realize what's really going on here and I know you care less about it than I, do Adam, but the spinning top in those final moments of inception. Wow on twitter this week marking. The tenth. Anniversary Kevin Geogra- Nov, said this a decade later and I still remember the entire pact prescreening audience audibly gasping at the smash cut ending. That was me.
