    Today I was finally able to see one of my most anticipated movies of 2020, Free Guy. And even as an unapologetic Ryan Reynolds homer I have to say it was a lot of fun and creative almost to a fault.

    Episode 109: Respect

    Looks we a re venturing back into the DCEU with a new look at the Suicide Squad. James Gunn clearly had fun with this one and so will you. It's on HBOMAX and in theaters but you already knew that because it turns out there's been commercials for this EVERYWHERE.

    Okay so part of me wants to undersell Pig to you and just say it's the story of Nicolas Cage searching for his lost truffle pig but that really undersells the whole movie and this movie deserves more than that. It's dark, tense, funny and heartbreaking all at once and Nicolas Cage's best acting in YEARS.

    You know those movies that get made entirely on the charisma of the two leads? And then that works and so they make a sequel with even more talented people that don't have the same chemistry or charisma of the first two people and since they sunk almost all of their budget into the cast everything somehow looks cheaper than the first one? Yeah that's this movie.
