THEODORE BOULOUKOS — THE LAST OF SHEILA

New York City actor Theodore Bouloukos joins the FEAST to drink a BELLS TWO HEARTED IPA and discuss THE LAST OF SHELIA — co-written by Anthony Perkins and Stephen Sondheim. Long before Bret Easton Ellis reveled in the narcissism of the entitled, Perkins and Sondheim celebrated it with just as little concern for likable characters. Bon appétit!

NATURAL BORN KILLERS — OLIVER STONE

Mike baits Cole with a film Cole has never been able to get through until now. What's drinking you might ask. Cole picked HOP STOOPID from Lagunitas Brewing Company. Is this Oliver Stone's worst film? Cole thinks so.

BLACK PANTHER — RYAN COOGLER

Treehouse Brewing's American Brown Ale BEAR is the beer of choice for Mike and Cole to hash out the first (and hopefully only) superhero movie to make it into the Feast. We also have our first food-fight as a result. Do superhero hero movies indoctrinate children into violent behavior? Cole thinks so. Could this be the movie that breaks LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST)? Superhero movies do indeed teach confrontation after all. Get out the electric knife for this one Bouffers, and don't worry about the mess.

LADY BIRD — GRETA GERWIG

Mike holds Cole's feet to the fire as Cole lays out character flaw after character flaw for Saoirse Ronan's persona in what is destined to be one of the most overrated films of all time. MAGIC HAT BREWING'S #9 provided a nice buzz to the discussion. You can read the print essay (THE MILLENNIAL CONFORMIST — OR HOW TO LEARN TO LOVE STUPIDITY WITHOUT REALLY TRYING), watch the video essay, and listen to the podcast. Since Cole is the only film critic to spell out "Lady Bird's" flaws, at least he doesn't hold back.
