How much money will Melissa McCarthy’s Tammy take in this 4th of July weekend? We start off this episode applying our complete lack of industry expertise to make our predictions. We also check out trailers for the movie adaptation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman, and Steve Carell playing very much against type in Foxcatcher. All that, plus Dustin and Cody finally see The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, and What We’re Watching.

New to Netflix

Some interesting new additions recently on Netflix:

The Cable Guy — How many movies have a scene at a Medieval Times restaurant? At least one, counting this film! Ben Stiller directs this ‘dark’ Jim Carrey flick.

Best In Show — One of my favorite movies, ever.

The Patriot — This is not a great movie, and Mel Gibson is not a great person. In fact, I’d say they’re both pretty terrible. But hey, people shooting muskets.

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape — See Johnny Depp before he was a pirate and Leonardo DiCaprio before he Incepted people. Title is a little misleading because I don’t think there are any grapes in the whole film.

Wild Wild West — When I worked at a movie theater in college, we could see movies for free, but this is one of the few, if only, movies I walked out on. It’s quite painful.

Play Misty for Me — Clint Eastwood’s directorial debut. It’s about pianos!

Cutthroat Island — The name of the island that the producers of this movie were sent to after it was released. Ba-dum, ching.

Fallen — Not a shabby paranormal thrama (thriller/drama) with Denzel Washington.

The Pianist — Really great (if not depressing) movie about the holocaust starring (Oscar-winner) Adrien Brody. Also about pianos.

Rocky — If you haven’t seen this yet, now is your chance! According to legend that I just made up, half the budget went to the scene where he punches meat.

Changing Lanes — Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck are mad at each other for some reason. No pianos (that I am aware of).
