59 – Chasing Asylum, Warcraft, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, The Nice Guys, An/Sweet Bean


Explicit Content

We’re back after a week off with a massive show. We first off deal with the essential documentary Chasing Asylum which takes a hard – and risky – look at Australia’s stance on asylum seekers. I highly recommend hitting the many links below and find out more information regarding this situation. Next up Andrew looks at one of the biggest bombs of the year, Warcraft. Next, the mutant turtle superhero film gets a look in with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Shane Black is back with his noir-esque comedy The Nice Guys – do Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling match up to Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer? Finally, we look at the Japanese film An – or as it’s known in America Sweet Bean.

Here is a very apt piece from First Dog on the Moon:

Drowning by First Dog on the Moon

Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he's been talking about how great films are and usually that's been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife. Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
