Nick chats with movie critics Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy about the new films “Dumb Money,” the terrific true story involving the Game Stop stock madness that went on during the pandemic; the new Agatha Christie mystery “A Haunting in Venice;” and the portrait of a real-life luchador wrestler named “Cassandro.” Erik also talks about some of the fine films he saw at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, including the latest from directors Richard Linklater and Alexander Payne. Then, Esmeralda Leon and Nick talk about ridiculous 90’s disaster movies like “Volcano” and “Deep Impact”, and the history of the disaster and nature-strikes-back films of the 70s like “Day of the Animals” (in which a shirtless Leslie Neilsen fights a grizzly bear) and “Beyond the Poseidon Adventure” (in which Michael Caine SCREAMS every single one of his lines), and they discuss how those idiotic movies were actually the DC and Marvel films of that time period….and just as stupid.
