Spooky season is here so time to bust out the horror films and rejoice in the scares to come! As always you all know that we do a horror month here at The Nerd Corps every October. Brad won the coin toss so this week we start this themed month with Jordan Peele’s Us. This is Brad’s first time watching this film and Raul’s second time. Listen to find out what both of them thought about the film!
IMDb Synopsis: “A family’s serene beach vacation turns to chaos when their doppelgängers appear and begin to terrorize them.”
The nerds continue with their International Film Month reviews. This week they are revisiting Iranian Cinema after having spent a whole month looking at the films of Abbas Kiarostami. They are not covering Kiarostami this time around, instead this week Raul and Brad discuss the Academy Award winning film, A Separation. Listen and find out what they thought about this film!
IMDb Synopsis: A married couple are faced with a difficult decision – to improve the life of their child by moving to another country or to stay in Iran and look after a deteriorating parent who has Alzheimer’s disease.
