For this week's Debate Club, we look back at five films that crashed and burned at the box office, only to be resurrected by audiences over time. (I had to write the Brazil capsule, naturally.) Check out the whole list here.

Some Thoughts on the New Season of 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'


For MEL, I wrote about Jerry Seinfeld, a brilliant comic, and the very mixed feelings I had about the 10th season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, a show I've often really liked. (As an added bonus, I rank my five all-time favorite episodes.) You can read the whole thing here.

'Skyscraper' Review


The Rock returns with Skyscraper, which is better than Rampage but not as good as Central Intelligence. The movie borrows from tons of other films -- not just Die Hard but also The Lady From Shanghai and The Fugitive -- and it's a silly, goofy, disposable entertainment. That wasn't enough for me, as I explain over at Screen International.

Some Thoughts on 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'


Is Paul Rudd smug?

Is truth serum a real thing?

What is Michelle Pfeiffer's best film of 2018?

I answer those questions, and explain why I want more small-stakes blockbusters like Ant-Man and the Wasp, over at MEL.

The Grierson & Leitch Podcast: Ant-Men, 'Sorry to Bother You' and 'Ikiru'


On this week's episode, we discuss Ant-Man and the Wasp. (I liked it better than Will did.) Then we review Sorry to Bother You. (I liked it less than Will did.) And then, in our Reboot segment, we look back to Ikiru. You can hear the whole thing down below.

Pusha T - "If You Know You Know"

You ever been hit with the water weight?
Then had to weigh: Do you war or wait? 
When we all clickin' like Golden State 
And you and your team are the motorcade
If you know, you know

I don't, but I love it.
