The team focus on the latest TV and Movie news this week. I, Tonya, Big Mouth, Bladerunner 2049 and Axe Cop all make the show this week. Margot Robbie impresses in her role as Tonya Harding.
I, Tonya, starring Margot Robbie, has impressed many a critic and our team are no different. After the shocking Suicide Squad movie, Margot Robbie steps up and plays Tonya expertly. The movie is a drama/dark comedy and attempts to follow the factual narrative of the events leading up to the incident that the main protagonist is infamous for. Well done to Margot Robbie.
On a lighter note, Cassie has been watching Big Mouth on Netflix, enjoying every minute of it. The animation follows a group of teens going through certain changes in their lives and the battles they face with the hormones and each other. Big Mouth has received mixed reviews, but our team have enjoyed it, even if some of the story plots were way to close to comfort for them.
Bladerunner 2049, I believe we can all agree was a bitter disappointment. Even the introduction of Deckard in the final third couldn’t save the sequel to the cult classic from the 80s, based on Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep short, from bombing critically.
Bladerunner 2049 is visually stunning, but the characters are bland and formulaic, this makes some sense when key ones are replicants. However, when an AI hologram housewife has a more complex character than the lead actor you have to ask what is going on!?!
Filip also talks about Army of Darkness and Axe Cop this week. The cult movie Army of Darkness isn’t so much horror, but more of a satirical dark comedy.
Well, Filip can tell you about that in the podcast. After all, he watched and suggested it.
