44 – Creed, Kumiko The Treasure Hunter, The Hunting Ground, Dope


Man Tears: The Musical – Andrew stars in this much anticipated sequel to Cinderella Man: Eternal Tears. Creed pulls on heart strings that Andrew had no idea he had. Many tears are had. Much hyperbole is delivered. In this episode of the AB Film Review, Andrew and Bernadette are no longer beholden to ruminents – those damn sheep. Instead, they also discuss the adventures of Bunzo, Train Rabbit and diligent treasure hunter, Kumiko in Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. They get a little bit serious with the latest Kirby Dick documentary The Hunting Ground. Finally, Andrew accidentally gets racist with Dope (he doesn’t mean it!) a film that challenges as much as it rewards. That’s all I have to say about things this week. Deal with it. I forgot to mention, we get quite meta in this episode as we discuss exactly what a review is. Why we review. Who reviews. What is the action of reviewing. Should we have possibly chosen a better title than something something film review? Does the notion that we’re a review show turn people off the show? Should we just end it all now and return our library books and say, enough is enough, we’re sick and tired, we’re not going to take this anymore? I give it one thumb up, one thumb down. And the third thumb is there for added effect.The song at the end of this episode is The Herd covering Sam Cooke’s A Change is Gonna Come.

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.
