The Wolverine

Quentin: Jake, I think you should start us off today.

Jake: Okay. We went to see The Wolverine last night.

Jason: There weren’t very many people there.

Quentin: Never a good sign.

Jake: Afterward, in the car, I came up with this idea that kind of grew out of my frustration with the movie.

Quentin: Which was?

Jake: Not enough Wolverine. I know that sounds crazy, because it’s called The Wolverine and the character is in almost every frame. But it’s not crazy, is it?

The Way Way Back

Quentin: It’s nice to talk about a film we liked for a change.

Jake: Today we went to see The Way Way Back.

Jason: A movie with no explosions.

Quentin: Don’t get us wrong. We still love us a good action flick. But lately they haven’t been delivering the kind of thrills teenage boys look for.

Jake: So we turn to another genre we love: the coming-of-age drama.

Quentin: And we’ve had a couple of those as well this year.

Jake: Mud. The Kings of Summer.

Pacific Rim

Quentin: You should have laid your bet on this one, Jake.

Jake: Is it just me, or are all these movies starting to look the same?

Jason: It’s not just you.

Quentin: We went to see Pacific Rim today, but I could have sworn we walked into Transformers 4.

Jake: There was a little Top Gun in there too.

Quentin: And Star Wars.

Jason: And some Armageddon.
