Has Michael Bay returned to his filmmaking style of the 90’s that we undeniably love? We certainly think there are some positive signs of that and enjoy a robust conversation of all things good and bad about his newest film. We also have a brief discussion about Richard Linklater’s latest animated work, since we didn’t get to it last week.

Jordan Peele follows up his massively successful directorial debut with this creepy, layered thriller/horror (comedy?) that is also full of pretty strong social messages. Unpacking all of it is a challenge, though, and we’re joined by Emmanuel Noisette of Eman’s Movie Reviews and our newest Feelin’ Film team member, Caless Davis, for an in-depth conversation and analysis of the mysteries Us has to offer.
Us is a solid film with an interesting premise, lots of laughs, and a stellar cast that proves Jordan Peele isn’t afraid to think outside the box and make films like no one else is currently doing.
