72 – La La Land, Broke, Queen of Katwe, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

There is no episode more indicative of the quality of this show than this episode right here. There’s bad audio. There’s swearing. Lots of swearing. There’s unexpected spoilers out of nowhere. There’s complaints about how hot it is. There’s an argument. There’s Bernadette telling Andrew he’s a fool. There’s also a double five star rating of a film. And there’s also TISM. (That last one isn’t a regular element of the show.)

So, what’s covered? Well, Damian Chazelle’s La La Land gets discussed with spoilers in the first film of the evening. Heath Davis’ first feature length film Broke gets covered alongside an interesting discussion about gambling addiction. Mira Nair brings us a story about chess in Uganda with Queen of Katwe. Finally, Andrew wasn’t about to let this film be the first film discussed on the episode, so it’s stuck at the end of this episode, and that is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which also includes spoilers. Because of course.

This was recorded on Christmas Day 2016 so there’s drunkenness and discussions about food and then films and arguments. It’s just like talking about things with your family.

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.
