Episode #154: Tributary - 6 Underground

January 8, 2020

Welcome fellow film geeks!  Today Mike Talent and Matt discuss the most Michael Bay film Michael Bay has ever Michael Bayed in history, the Netflix original 6 Underground starring Ryan Reynolds.  Not Michael Bay related topics include not so smart assistants, Kirby Chambliss, and selfies.

6 Underground is a really fun movie with tons of incredible over the top action.  This is one of the few straight to Netflix films that definitely would be better to watch in a theater.  The biggest issue this movie has is the story and that is a very big deal to both of your hosts. The acting is great for the most part.  Ryan Reynolds comes off as just collecting a paycheck though. He is not terrible in 6 Underground but he also does nothing that’s worth talking about either.  Mike Talent enjoyed the film but was very disappointed by the story and acting giving the film 2 out of 5 Reels.  Matt also thought this movie could have been better except for the action and stunts, he loved them. He gives 6 Underground a score of 3 out of 5 Reels.

Possibly later this week we will discuss a second Tributary film with our review of The Two Popes starring Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce.  Based on true events of the transition of power from Pope Benedict to Pope Francis.  Finally, next week we will be reviewing a film your hosts are extremely excited about Sam Mendes’ 1917.  A story following two British soldiers during  World War I who are tasked with delivering a message behind enemy lines.  Thanks for your continued support of our podcast and have a great rest of your week.
