Episode 22: ‘Cloud Atlas’ and Our Favorite Films that Other People Hate

Episode 22

We’re doing things a little differently this week. Instead of seeing a movie in theaters, we let Ricky pick one. And to the chagrin of many, he chose the Wachowski’s three hour long epic, Cloud Atlas. After first complaining about the length, Alonso and April then discuss the merits and aspirations of the polarizing film. And don’t worry, they do talk about all the prosthetics and makeup (there are A LOT of fake noses in this movie). Dovetailing with that conversation, the gang discusses the movies they love…but everyone else hates. You may be surprised by the terrible movies these professional film critics like! You’ll never guess who likes Dragonball Evolution.
