Flix Anonymous — Episode 42

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.

Trev and Steve review the new releases for a very dry week at the theatre. But don’t worry you can moisten things up with your tears as they review The Light Between Oceans, the new romance drama with Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender.

We get into some obscure french films that are on limited release. We bring on our friend Casey White who talks what’s good on TV right now.

We also get into what’s good on VOD/Netflix and finish things off with Stoner Flix which gets really bizarre.

For Netflix and Video on Demand, Trevor recommends Son of Saul, available on Netflix, the film won the academy award for best foreign film.

Trevor says it’s not your typical story with heros and bad guys, instead it’s just a simple story taking place in a very cruel and gross backdrop. It sweeps you away and then sticks with you.

Steve’s recommends Maggie’s Plan.

Trev and Steve lay back, relax and give a couple of stoner flix recommendations for full #CouchLock. This week Steve’s choice is The Nice Guys (Warner Brothers) and Trev brings something bizarre in Danger 5 (SBS) which you can find on Netflix. Grab your best indica and enjoy.

Next week, the smallest slate of movies in a while, as four films come out in total and two of those we’re unsure of at this recording time.

In wide release, Clint Eastwood brings us the true story of airline pilot and hero Chesley Sullenberger and an animated film, The Wild Life, and a new thriller called When The Bough Breaks.

In limited release is the documentary on the late Leonard Nimoy, For The Love Of Spock.
