Grierson & Leitch
No Reboot this week, because we've got four spanking new movies for us both to discuss. There's the "Men in Black" branding exercise, Jim Jarmusch's new film "The Dead Don't Die," Martin Scorsese's Netflix documentary (sort of) about Bob Dylan "Rolling Thunder Revue" and ... another Shaft movie.(This has not been the best summer.)Timestamps (approximate):7:23 "Men In Black: International"24:28 "The Dead Don't Die"45:33 "Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story"1:08:15 "Shaft"Thanks to Dylan Mayer and My Friend Mary, both of which are wonderful, for the music.We hope you enjoy.

Episode of
Grierson & Leitch
Congratulations, America: You are finally done with the "X-Men" movies. OK, not really, but "Dark Phoenix" is a lackluster end to a once-excellent franchise. We discuss. We also get into Mindy Kaling's "Late Night." (We're split on that one.)Grierson solos on "The Last Black Man in San Francisco," and then, in our Reboot segment, we check out the 2008 pseudo-zombie Canadian thriller "Pontypool."Timestamps (approximate):8:00 "Dark Phoenix"23:50 "Late Night"44:15 "The Last Black Man in San Francisco"50:00 "Pontypool"Thanks to Dylan Mayer and My Friend Mary, both of which are wonderful, for the music.We hope you enjoy.

"Godzilla: King of the Monsters," "Rocketman," "Animal House"
Episode of
Grierson & Leitch
Wait, there's another Godzilla movie? There is! It's "Godzilla: King of the Monsters." It's ... another Godzilla movie. Also, there is another movie about a classic rock star. This time Elton John gets the biopic treatment in "Rocketman." We disagree on that one.Also, in our Reboot segment, we have another "Will and Tim soil the favorite movies of your youth" entry, as we talk about 1978's "Animal House."Timestamps (approximate):9:52 "Godzilla: King of the Monsters"29:10 "Rocketman"54:00 "Animal House"Thanks to Dylan Mayer and My Friend Mary, both of which are wonderful, for the music.We hope you enjoy.
