We bring our month of Joe Dante films to a close with probably one of the weaker films in his arsenal: Burying the Ex. Despite the letdown, there’s still a lot to like here. Anton Yelchin, may he rest in peace, brings energy and nuance to a character that’s difficult to love, and Alexandra Daddario and Ashley Greene steal the show with characters that are awesome, three-dimensional, and written well. It’s the little things that bring the movie down like the brother and some awkward plotting and logic. Is it worth the watch? We give you the scoop.
We also discuss Looney Tunes: Back in Action, as well as the “It’s A Good Life” segment out of Twilight Zone: The Movie, both of which are quite fun and really showcase that Dante chaos we’ve come to enjoy through our month of Dante.
What an absolute treat this month has been.
