Episode #132 - Enough

July 14th, 2016

Jennifer Lopez returns with a vengeance in this week's episode review of Enough! Lopez plays "Slim", a woman who meets a guy in the diner she's working in, falls in love, gets married, has a kid, and embarks on what seems to be the perfect life. After years of wedded bliss, she discovers that everything she knew about her relationship is a lie. She soon becomes the victim of domestic abuse, a concept that is much too heavy and real for what this movie does with it. After being chased around the country by her obsessive and abusive husband, she decides to take things into her own hands, turning to the one thing that all abused women eventually turn to when they've finally had enough... UFC fighting. That's right, UFC fighting. No, really... UFC... fighting... Slim goes from a semi-realistic portrayal of a battered woman to Matthew Fox in Alex Cross in no time at all. Grab your wigs, don't call the cops no matter what, and join us as we change our identities and run as far as we can from Enough!

Episode #131 - Gods of Egypt

July 3rd, 2016

Gods of Egypt is a 2016 video game cut scene that tells the story of an "alternative Egypt", where the skin is white and the accents are varied. The lands is ruled by gods, who are giants with gold for blood. Current king Osiris is passing down the throne to his son Horus, when his brother Set decides to crash the party. After killing his brother and tearing out his nephew's eyes, he takes over the kingdom, enslaving the population and making life miserable for everyone. When a young man named Bek and his girlfriend Zaya plot to steal Horus' powers back from Set in order to give him the ability to take back his kingdom, things go wrong and Zaya is killed. Now, Bek must team up with an ornery Horus in order to overthrow Set and and rescue Zaya from the underworld before she's forced to cross over into the afterlife. This movie makes Hercules look like the most historically accurate film of all time. Grab your god spear, erect an obelisk in Andy Wolf's honor, and join us as we tear the brain out of Gods of Egypt!
