On the latest episode of Find Your Film we review the new Netflix feature Moxie, the Shudder releaseDogs Don’t Wear Pants, and the Gerard Butler disaster feature Greenland! Take a listen to our podcast and give us your reactions to these movies!
The biggest surprise for me was Greenland’seffectiveness as a narrative. Director Ric Roman Waugh focuses more on the human relationships rather than the special effects or action driven moments that can ultimately make or break a disaster feature.
All three of us recently watched The Poseidon Adventure, another blockbuster type movie that placed human interaction before the efects, and it seems that Waugh may have been inspired by Ronald Neame’s hit film. Bruce and I also flipped over the feature Dogs Don’t Wear Pants, a dark comedy/drama about a dominatrix (Krista Kosonen) who has a profound impact on a detached surgeon (Pekka Strang).
Bruce really enjoyed the new Netflix feature Moxie, and the Amy Poehler directed teen comedy is definitely on my to watch list this weekend. Other movies covered include 13: Tzameti, The Guilty and Dream Demon!
