Lawless – John Hillcoat’s latest collaboration with Nick Cave – wants desperately to achieve a Bonnie and Clyde vibe but lacks the panache. Instead, we get a kind of ‘30s Drive with stretches of character punctuated with sudden, explosive violence.
This week on GeekScholars Movie News, presented by Eclipse Magazine, we look at the always fantastic, blockbuster-filled month of May. It’s a great time of year to go to the movies, and we’ll tell you which flicks are simply not to be missed!
From there we dive into some preview reviews. Our first trailer we look at is a prohibition period piece starring Shia LeBeouf and Tom Hardy as bootlegging brothers in Lawless. After that we discuss our first look at the quasi-sequel to Knocked Up called This is 40 starring Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd.
From there we have few quickies to update you on as well as our weekend preview which really only deals with the one movie you should be seeing- The Avengers.
So give this week’s show a quick listen, right here!
