Episode 44: The First Purge, Uncle Drew, The Thing, and More

It was Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada so Hemant had a long weekend to put in a little extra movie time. In this week’s episode he talks about some exciting Star Wars news regarding the upcoming live action TV series that will be debuting on the new Disney streaming service.

He then briefly talks about a couple movies he had a chance to revisit, including Fast Five from 2011, as well as the 1997 blockbuster Titanic which he shared with his oldest son.

It’s then onto the main reviews for the week including two new Bluray releases, The First Purge and Uncle Drew. Hemant then wraps up the episode by sharing his thoughts on John Carpenter’s 1982 sci-fi horror classic, The Thing – a film that he embarrassingly hadn’t experienced until this past week.
