One thought on “Movie Podcast Weekly Ep. 274: The Greatest Showman (2017) and The Post (2018)

  1. Another great episode, as always.

    I appreciated everyone’s review of The Post. I found myself not quite chomping at the bit to rush out and see this film, which is odd considering the Hanks/Streep/Spielberg-ness of it all. BUT, everyone’s praise has emboldened me to seek it out before awards time.

    Also planning on checking out Shimmer Lake due to the continued praise. I am loving the continued success of the Netflix properties, and I am wondering if anyone (hosts or community) has seen Jim & Andy? This documentary was so much fun for me, as a fan of comedy and of Jim Carrey. I was mostly intrigued by the documentary footage of the actors on the set of Man on the Moon, and I wish I had some frame of reference from another film set in order to fully comprehend the gravity of Carrey’s toxicity. I can’t tell if he’s brilliant, or just an egomaniac who started to unravel in the worst way. I suspect it’s a little of both….

    I didn’t want to provide much more context than that, lest I spoil your Netflix documentary experience.
