A creature feature with human-sized bugs eating people in subways seems like it was tailor-made for the talents of Guillermo Del Toro, but alas, that is not what we got. Mimic should have been so much better than it was, but its parts did not work together to create a cohesive whole. We break down all the things that didn’t work, and point out some of the Del Toro staples that could have been so much more if…well…there had been so much more.
We wrap up our month of Dede Allen with a bit of a flop, and for that Jon apologizes. We’re talking The Final Cut, starring Robin Williams, Jim Caviezel, and Mira Sorvino. You would think based off the talent alone that we were in for a treat, but you would be mistaken. The movie is more interested in raising questions than answering them, and after awhile it becomes painfully tedious. Production design is sound, and of course Dede Allen edits the hell out of it.
Bryan and Chewie also discuss 1991’s The Adams Family, which ended up being way more entertaining and featured some really fun editing.
