Movie Times Ep. 18 Don’t Breathe

We wanted to shake things up a little so this weekend we went to see Don’t Breathe, the Fede Alvarez horror-thriller flick that’s currently getting butts into movie theater seats across the nation. Cheryl admits to not having seen a horror movie since 1999’s The Blair Witch Project (oh how the time goes, apparently they’re making a second one?) because she gets nightmares like a small, frightened child. Joe is tougher but probably still wouldn’t break into a blind Gulf War veteran’s home on a block of abandoned houses in the middle of the night to steal $300,000. But maybe the opportunity just hasn’t come up yet.

Movie Times Ep. 13 – Captain America & The Argonauts

Joe and Cheryl watched Captain America: Civil War and discussed that horrorshow of a summer blockbuster, then talked about Maggie Nelson’s The Argonauts, without any attempts to tie the two together (thankfully).

Movie Times Ep. 9: “Carol”

Joe and I and our friend Carra went to see the newest Todd Haynes movie, starring the always impeccable Cate Blanchett and a doe-eyed Rooney Mara. It’s an understated study of two women who fall in love in the 1950s, based on the Patricia Highsmith novel, The Price of Salt. We left the theater wrung dry. Isn’t this why we see movies? Isn’t it?????

Movie Times Ep. 8: “Star Wars”

Joe and Cheryl sojourned to Maryland for Jesus’s birthday and watched the newest Star Wars installment.
