Are You Screening? Podcast #210 – Going In Style

You knew what you were getting with Going in Style when you walked in, and the only question was whether or not these three icons of cinema were going to go full slapstick in this caper picture about retirees who decide they don’t have much to lose.

That’s probably why we spent a good deal of time going back to the whitewashing controversy surrounding Ghost in the Shell. Well, that and someone asked us about it.

Still, if you can’t have a good time with any picture starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin, you probably just aren’t trying… or, you’re rather young.

It does go rather silly, and the reveal of their effort to outwit the system is a little far-fetched, but this is a decent enough “feel good” film as long as you aren’t expecting to be blown away.

Have a listen below, and let us know what you think of this one.
