On the final (Some of the) Worst of 2016 episode, the guys tackle the total who-was-asking-for-this sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence! Why does the CGI look so terrible in this major blockbuster? Why did we need to squeeze back in the characters played by Vivica A. Fox and Judd Hirsch? And are we really aping Aliens this much? PLUS: This film officially dethrones Super Mario Bros. for having the absolute most audacious sequel setup in film history!
Independence Day: Resurgence stars Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie T. Usher, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, William Fichtner, Judd Hirsch, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Brent Spiner; directed by Roland Emmerich.
This week on the show, the guys chat about the silly, gold-bleeding, CGI dump, Gods of Egypt! Why was it so hard to cast even one Egyptian actor in a lead role here? What's with all that gold blood? And who thought that this human/god height difference idea was so cool? PLUS: Until he lost his eye, Peter Falk was totally an animorph!
Gods of Egypt stars Brenton Thwaites, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gerard Butler, Bryan Brown, Chadwick Boseman, Elodie Yung, Courtney Eaton, and Geoffrey Rush; directed by Alex Proyas.
This week on the show, our (Some of) the Worst of 2016 month continues with one of the most requested films in show history, the wretched Suicide Squad! Why do we need every single back story in here? Why jam pack so many characters in that no one cares about and not kill off most of them? And didn't this feel like a two-hour video game cut scene? PLUS: A lot of RAAAAAAAANDOM screenplay decisions make this the most EXTREME comic book movie to date!
Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, David Harbour, Jared Leto, Common, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Cara Delevingne, and Joel Kinnaman; directed by David Ayer.
On this week's episode, the gang takes a look at the ridiculous Big Box comedy, Dirty Grandpa! Why did that beach scene need to be so extreme? Do the makers of The Hangover have a case here? And why can't Dirty Grandpa just have sex and be done with it?! PLUS: We dig up a story about an actor's racist Halloween costume that was, indeed, a bad idea.
Dirty Grandpa stars Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch, Aubrey Plaza, Jason Mantzoukas, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Hough, Adam Pally, and Danny Glover; directed by Dan Mazer.
On the first episode of the new year, the guys hunker down for a month of chatting about some of the worst films of 2016! Up first is the pathetic excuse for a grief drama, Collateral Beauty! What's with this insane scheme? How does no one go to jail for this? And are you kidding us with those twist endings?! PLUS: Steve presents an alternative for ladies who are just tired of regular, boring, old sperm banks!
Collateral Beauty stars Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Michael Peńa, Naomie Harris, Keira Knightley, Jacob Latimore, and Ann Dowd; directed by David Frankel.
