What are some good examples of movies that have a strong and well-defined cultural or critical reputation that we feel is incorrect?
That was the question we asked ourselves this week, and we let our opinions fly. We countered the common cultural takeaways of several movies (Anchorman 2, Death to Smoochy, Vanilla Sky, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, Iron Man 2, and A Clockwork Orange, to name them all) while also paying homage to the people who love to nitpick (which is, after all, what we do on this podcast every week). At the end of the day, even if we disagree with the takes, nitpicking means that people care. And so do we. Enjoy!
