This week on The Harold & Maudecast we check in with Westworld, HBO's drama/western/sci-fi/action/thriller based on the Michael Crichton book and movie starring Yul Brynner. We review episode 7, Season 1, which has a big reveal, but will the show keep us hooked the likes of Stranger Things, hmmm. Take a listen.
Also this week two new Now Streaming on VOD reviews, THE NICE GUYS and THE LEGEND OF TARZAN. Both films were theatrically released in the Summer of 2016 to disappointing box office returns. THE NICE GUYS stars Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe as private detectives who accidentally get tangled up in the same case. It's written and directed by Shane Black who knows a thing or two about Buddy action/comedies. He wrote the LETHAL WEAPON films and IRON MAN 3. THE LEGEND OF TARZAN stars Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) in the title role and Margot Robbie as Jane (SUICIDE SQUAD), Samuel L Jackson (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR) and Christoph Waltz (SPECTRE film) as the evil industrialist nemesis. Harry Potter fans will be enthusiastic to know that David Yates directed the film. He direct five of The Harry Potter films including the upcoming FANTASTIC BEASTS.
So, based on all that street cred, wouldn't ya think at least one of these is worth the watch? Well yes, one of them is. Listen to this episode of The Harold & Maudecast and you'll find out which one! hahaha sucked in. But it's worth it.
