Reel Film Nerds

Episode #44: Operation Finale

September 4, 2018

Hello fellow movie nerds and welcome to another incredible episode of the Reel Film Nerds podcast!  Today we talk about a very serious and incredible drama based on a true story, Operation Finale starring Sir Ben Kinglsey and Oscar Isaac.  The film is based on the hunting down and capture of escaped Holocaust mastermind Adolph Eichmann.  Your hosts do stray off topic a bit especially Matt like always but they do their best to steer the review back on course.  The guys talk about why history is important, college, and World War 2 based movies The Darkest Hour and Dunkirk.  This is one of the more serious podcasts the guys have done but it is a very serious film on an incredible true story.

Mike and Matt both loved this movie and highly recommend you see it even if you can’t make it to the local movie theater and have to watch it later when it comes out on Blu-ray or Netflix.  It is incredibly impactful and well acted by the majority of the cast, sorry Nick Kroll you sucked.  Matt and Mike both give the film 4 out of 5 Reels.

This Thursday Matt and Mike review a film that is basically the exact opposite of Operation Finale.  The hosts review a cult classic drug riddle story based around the book and life of famed journalist Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro.  Talk at you Thursday.  Don’t forget we are still looking for suggestions for Episode #50 which is coming up real fast.  Email us your thoughts on what we should do for this upcoming milestone episode.
