Episode 71: Good Actors in Bad Movies

Ep 71 Good Actors in Bad Movies

Every now and then we find a really great actor (or really cute one) that has us aching to watch ALL of his/her movies – even the bad ones. Because if they’re in them, how bad can they really be?

Find out just how BAD it can get when actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender (featured not once but TWICE here) or Ryan Gosling star in some of the worst movies we’ve ever seen.

There was a problem with one of our mics in this episode, so we’re sorry the audio quality isn’t the best. The issue is now fixed, so future recordings will sound crystal clear.

Structure
00:00 – 03:00 Introductions
03:01 – 22:00 Interesting Movie of the Fortnight: October (2018), Tomb Raider (2018), and Gifted (2017)
