Flix Anonymous — Episode 39

Steve Stebbing “Stevil Dead” (CKNW and League of Manchildren film critic) and Trevor Dueck (The Daily Hive film critic) have joined forces to bring you Flix Anonymous, a show that brings you a fresh perspective on the cinematic universe, each and every Friday.

This week in new releases, Flix Anonymous looks at the Will Smith super-villain movie Suicide Squad, along with Nine Lives, a movie where Kevin Spacey is magically transported into the body of a cat.

Also, in limited release this week, IndignationAngry Indian GoddessesOur Little SisterLife, AnimatedLo and Behold Reveries of the Connected WorldBatman: The Killing Joke (VOD) and Mother’s Day (VOD).

For the newest streaming on Netflix and Video on Demand, Trevor recommends Keanu, starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele and Steve suggests viewers check out High Rise.

In film news this weekChanning Tatum and Jillian Bell were announced to star in a ‘Splash’ remake for Disney, Terry Gilliam begins production on ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ and Joe Carnahan will write a film version of the ‘Uncharted’ video game series.

In stoner picks, Steve recommends The Bronze and Trevor says you should check out Funny or Die: Donald Trump’s the Art of the Deal on Netflix.

“You should be familiar with Trump’s life to understand the jokes — some are pretty offside as Funny or Die does. But I like some cringe humor in my comedy,” Trev said. “The satire may not compare to Blazing Saddles or Life of Brian but it still has some funny moments. Maybe it was the weed.”
