We Are Entertained: ‘A Simple Favor’

We Are Entertained: ‘A Simple Favor’

The boys are back this week and, in the spirit of football season, Matt calls an audible. Instead of fulfilling last week’s promise and seeing ‘The Predator,’ we take a somewhat predictable turn and check out the latest Anna Kendrick movie (surprise, surprise, surprise) ‘A Simple Favor.’ What do you think, did we make the right call?

We Are Entertained: Solo

We Are Entertained: Solo

It’s all over the news, ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ is being called a failure. What did the boys think? I can’t reveal all of our secrets, you’ll have to listen for details, but I will give you a clue and say that our thoughts were more positive than negative. We do talk a little bit about what other people are saying about the movie but we’re sure you’ve read everything everyone else has said – tune in and find out what we loved, what we hated, and what baffled us about ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’.  Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘Rampage’

We Are Entertained: ‘Rampage’

After an unexpected week off, the boys knock the rust off with a sure-fire winner and what must surely be the 37th feature film for The Rock of 2018, ‘Rampage.’ There was a long time where Chris couldn’t quite wrap his head around the phenomenon of The Rock but this movie may just have pushed him over the edge. What do you think, are we entering a phase where there’s just too much The Rock or would you be happy with a new feature every week starring His Muscleboundness?  Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’

We Are Entertained: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’

A very strange collection of entries in the world of cinema this week. Despite fierce criticism and intense opposition from Chris, the boys took on ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ as this week’s feature. One of us wound up loving it, the other was a bit let down. Surprise, both of us thought it was a terrible movie! That bit of confusing nonsense just about sums up our show this week; give it a listen and see if you can piece together what we thought of this movie. I’d sure love to hear your opinions on it!

We Are Entertained: Game Night

We Are Entertained: Game Night

This week we take on the new comedy ‘Game Night,’ which confused the heck out of us during planning because normally “Game Night” doesn’t show up on the calendar without beer and beefy queso to accompany it. (Can you say 3-for-1 on Tostitos Scoops?) The boys went into this one with wildly different expectations, but their reactions may surprise you. Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘The Shape of Water’

We Are Entertained: ‘The Shape of Water’

This week’s show is just full of delight. Delightful ramblings, delightful performances, delightful cinematic experiences. Just delightful! It might be a difficult ask in this busy award show season, but if it’s playing in your local cinema you have absolutely got to get out and see ‘The Shape of Water.’ It’s going to get nominations, it’s going to be talked about, it’s going to be on your short list of favorite movies this year. Trust me. It’s delightful. Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘Coco’

We Are Entertained: ‘Coco’

This week the boys feasted on Pixar’s latest animated wonder ‘Coco.’ Much like the actual theater experience, if all you’re interested in is hearing what they thought, feel free to fast-forward through the insufferable Disney/’Frozen’ nonsense at the beginning. Bonus points if you can guess which of us got up and walked out of the theater to complain about the wrong movie being played!  Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘Murder on the Orient Express’

We Are Entertained: ‘Murder on the Orient Express’

We really missed Richard this week. Why does he have to spend so much time actually making movies instead of sitting around talking about them?! Join us as we dive into the latest adaptation of Agatha Christie’s ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ and struggle mightily to pronounce the name of the miraculously mustachioed hero Hercule Poirot. Also, apparently, Chris doesn’t know who Kenneth Branagh is? Strange.  Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘American Assassin’

We Are Entertained: ‘American Assassin’

This week, we dive into the thrilling world of Mitch Rapp in the movie ‘American Assassin.’ This adaptation of Vince Flynn’s electrifying novel of the same name is sure to get everyone’s heart pumping and, if true to the novels, provide the world with a fresh look at the spy thriller. Should you get into the theaters to see this one or just curl up with a nice PSL and get lost in Flynn’s novels? Tune in and find out what our boys thought! Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘Top 5 of Early 2017’

We Are Entertained: ‘Top 5 of Early 2017’

Another pitiful week at the box office, another Very Special Episode of We Are Entertained! This week Matt and Chris take a look back at what 2017 has offered up so far and reminisce about some of their favorites. Everyone loves lists, at least that’s what the SEO masterminds tell me, so please accept this offering of our top 5 films of early 2017.  Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘The Lost City of Z’

We Are Entertained: ‘The Lost City of Z’

It’s been a little too huggie-feelie around here the past few weeks and it’s about time for the fellas to disagree on a movie and really get into it. Challenge accepted! This week’s episode is what the show is all about, join us as we dive into the mysterious jungles of Amazonia and duke it out over ‘The Lost City of Z’, it’s likely you’ll agree with one of us! Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

We Are Entertained: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

This week the boys had the great pleasure of a timely interview with Tony McFarr, Chris Pratt’s fantastic stunt double in many of his recent films including this week’s feature ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ (48:49 in the show). This interview was a blast and I think it went really well; let us know what you thought! Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘The Circle’

We Are Entertained: ‘The Circle’

Take a journey this week with us to the campus of The Circle. The boys have really been looking forward to this one; Tom Hanks as FaceboGooglApple founder Steve ZuckerPage and Emma Watson as a too-smart customer experience drone with an overachievement complex seems like a surefire hit. Add a gorgeous Scottish accent and what’s not too love? Tune in and find out. Read More

We Are Entertained: ‘The Fate of the Furious’

We Are Entertained: ‘The Fate of the Furious’

It’s hard to explain exactly just how much the crew at We Are Entertained were looking forward to the latest installment in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, ‘The Fate of the Furious.’ By that I mean, of course, that numbers that small are difficult to talk about without running into the realm of the quantum mechanical world.

We Are Entertained: ‘Ghost in the Shell’

We Are Entertained: ‘Ghost in the Shell’

This is an action packed and confusing week; one of us stumbles into a movie we weren’t expecting while the other one discovers that network television still has a few winners in its corner. The boys get into a little argument about this week’s movie, ‘Ghost in the Shell,’ and discuss Shia LaBeouf’s record-breaking box office event. Read More
