We made it passed episode 10! Can you believe it? To celebrate it we actually had a meaningful discussion about care for local businesses in the times of COVID-19. After that, it’s the usual nonsense.
We talk about late Joel Schumacher and mention our favourite films he directed (we don’t list his sexual partners, even he lost the count). Conor has some breaking news about Batman, ‘Tenet’ is delayed again and we discuss safety measures that await audiences in the cinemas when they reopen.
Conor didn’t have time to watch anything this week as he keeps playing through The Last of Us Part II. Rado, on the other hand, doesn’t play any games and he watched a ton of films, new and old, and few TV shows. He also warns against watching ‘365 Days’ that keeps trending on Netflix, despite it’s a Polish movie. It’s just very, very bad!
We review Spike Lee’s latest movie – ‘Da 5 Bloods’.
At the end, we reflect on 2020 so far and list our favourite films and TV shows.
