Happy National hangover from Cinco day!!! Look we didn’t open this review with the end of the world maybe things are starting to turn around. Today Mike and Matt discuss a little known Martin Scorsese film Bringing Out the Dead starring Nicholas Cage. Not related topics include SGN, Cinco de Drinko, and Ghost Rider.

Bringing Out the Dead is not one of Scorsese’s best films but it is definitely not his worst either. It is a very dark and depressing story taking place over three nights as a paramedic descends into madness while being haunted by the ghosts of the people he could not save. The three different nights feel extremely different thanks to Cage’s coworkers he tours New York City with each night. One is optimistic, one is maniacal, and one is just thinking about dinner. The film production and the acting from the star studded cast is incredible. The shots are unique and beautiful each telling a different story. This is a charismatic, harrowing, and dark film that is not for everyone especially right now with the COVID-19 quarantine still going on. For the first time in five weeks Matt and Mike have different ratings! Mike was not a fan of this movie but respects it. He gives Bringing Out the Dead 3 out of 5 Reels. Matt likes this film that is why he suggested it. It is not an incredible film for him but it is enjoyable and a unique story. He gives it 4 out of 5 Reels.

Next week it’s Mike’s pick and he chose wisely!
