Happy hump day everyone! Today Matt and Mike continue cheating death and visit the movie theater to catch the last Fox Marvel film The New Mutants. Additional topics include sports ball, Siskel & Ebert, and the future of the X-Men franchise.

What is wrong with critics today? The New Mutants isn’t a masterpiece but it is in no way a terrible movie. Could it have been better, sure. It is a decent take on making the mutant/superhero genre into a horror film. There are still elements of your typical superhero film with big action sequences and CGI but it succeeds at it’s attempt to create a horror sub-genre. The acting is very good, the sets all take place in one location but are very different, and the story is decent. This is not a must see film in the theaters but it is definitely worth a watch when it drops on Hulu or Disney+ in the future. Mike and Matt both agree it earns 3 out of 5 Reels.

Next week is a little dry for new releases on streaming and in theaters. It is Matt’s pick and he chose to do a Legacy cast on the 2011 alien road trip comedy, Paul. It is currently streaming on HBO and HBO Max. Don’t forget to enter our movie giveaway contests, we have a couple going on with more in the near future!
