Ep. 7 – ‘200 Dollars’
This week on The Punch Up, the chaps get angsty at Colin Trevorrow’s appointment as director of Star Wars Ep. IX. On the review front, we take a look at Don Hertzfeldt’s depressing animated feature, It’s Such a Beautiful Day, dark anime classic, Grave of the Fireflies, some overrated horror in the form of The Babadook, HBO’s new series, Show Me A Hero, Batman follow up animation, The Dark Knight Returns, and Italian Academy Award winner, La Grande Bellezza. ‘Sucker Punched’ returns also, with in-depth chat re: 3 doozies, Sam Mendes’ Tom Hanks leading gangster flick, Road to Perdition, Martin Scorcese and Robert De Niro’s creepy black comedy classic, The King of Comedy, and one the greatest films you’ve never heard of, 1973’s Paper Moon.
