Our next episode comes courtesy of Patreon donor Andrew Milne, who wanted to know our thoughts on the Indonesian action movies The Raid: Redemption and The Raid 2. No fair guessing Tim's opinions if you follow those links, but what will Rob and Carrie have to say about two of the very best action movies of the 21st Century, given their ridiculous hesitation to embrace subtitled movies?
Word out of Cannes is that Alden Ehrenreich makes for a pretty good Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story, but let's just say that we'll believe it when we see it.

Carrie, Rob, and Tim share their picks for the most damaging performances ever: the times when a movie was actually ruined by bad acting.

You're only as old as you feel, but if you're pairing Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda in the movie Book Club, you're sure to be a contender for our Top 5 Geriatric movies. This week we explore the films that best highlight those fine golden years, the highs and lows of aging and everything in between.

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and it brings with it Life of the Party, a film about a mom humiliating her daughter by going back to college (it's also just shown up as one of Carrie's most-anticipated films of the summer!). To celebrate both of these things, we're celebrating our favorite films about mothers and daughters. Whether it's a loving relationship, a fraught relationship, or a relationship complicated by the fact that one of them has accidentally been turned into a bear, movies about the difficulties of women's family relationships have been a reliable source of comedy and drama for decades, and we're excited to share our picks for the best of the lot.
