Episode #67: Widows

November 29, 2018

Namaste everybody and welcome to your second RFN pod of the week!  Today your hosts review Widows a slow burn Chicago based heist movie from director Steve McQueen starring Viola DavisMichelle Rodriguez, and Elizabeth Debicki.  Mike does his best to keep Matt on topic and pretty much succeeds.  Topics this episode go like this Matt hates Christmas, Mike is Matt’s brother at least in spirit, the trailer and marketing screwed this movie, and Mike’s MCU tie-in streak continues!!!

Widows is a long drawn out movie that needs to spend a bit more time in the editing bay.  The character development is great and maybe even over done.  How much development do we really need on so many side characters?  The acting was incredible especially from the three main actresses.  Mike really enjoyed Widows and thinks it is worth the trip to the theater.  He awards it 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt was not a huge fan of the film.  He thought it was boring especially the first two acts.  He loved the acting and the story as whole but still thinks it is just an average film.  He also gives Widows 3 out of 5 Reels.
