This was an oddly fun week, considering we didn’t have any movies to love, which is a strange statement on how well these films managed their averageness. For The November Man especially, though the film may not have impressed us overall, there was a lot to like about it, and watching Pierce Brosnan.

As Shane couldn’t stop saying about The November Man, it’s comfort food, and will work as such for a lot of people.

The November Man Movie Brosnan

The ratings on the article are for The November Man.

For As Above/So Below –

Marc Eastman – 2.5/10

Shane Leonard – 4.5/10

So, we were pretty close on The November Man, and while neither of us is exactly singing the praises of As Above/So Below, there’s a pretty big difference between our viewpoints. It’s actually a difference that probably sounds even bigger to hear us talk about it. You’ll just have to tune in and find out how we got to our ratings.

I also had to give my two cents about Joan Rivers’ death, just because the way it was hitting the media threw me for a loop. So, you don’t want to miss that.
