In Extremist Movie Debate, Ethan and Joe’s true feelings about the movie do not matter. They flip a coin to decide who loves it and who hates it. They then debate it on the fly. This episode? Mother!
Oftentimes, hilarity ensues (or just offensive arguments). As always, SPOILERS AHEAD.
Mother! [official trailer]
Darren Aronofsky is one of the most divisive filmmakers working today and he doesn’t disappoint with his new movie, Mother! Joe thinks the movie tries to appeal to a small subset of the audience and, when the allegory becomes too obvious, Aronofsky purposefully distorts the story simply to shock the audience. Ethan applauds the movie for being bold and artistic. He argues that it tells a story in a way we haven’t seen and through the innovative storytelling and original vision it is a cinematic treat. Unpaid Intern Jeff moderates.
