Weekend Fallout: Summer Breeze

The Weekend Fallout is an unsafe place to discuss most things in the reel and real world.

Let us know what you have been watching recently on the big and small screen. Excited about any upcoming releases? Doing anything fun this weekend? Simply sitting around in your underwear eating dang quesadillas while watching movies and endlessly scrolling through social media? Let us know below!


Here are some articles from this past week that we encourage you to check out and jump in (or start) the conversation. 

Kicking off our July theme of Summer films, we take a look at the 1975 classic Jaws for its 45th anniversary by adding it to SAW’s Canon and taking a special look at one of it’s best scenes.

Was Sailor able to make it through an entire month of films with watching a dud? Find out here with his Films I Saw in June.

Spring (2014)

“A young man in a personal tailspin flees from the US to Italy, where he sparks up a romance with a woman harboring a dark, primordial secret.”

I enjoyed this romantic horror film. It’s a little slow going but the characters are entertaining enough to keep you engaged and see where it is heading. The main characters have solid chemistry and Nadia Hilker is perfect for the mysterious love interest. It’s kind of like Nicholas Sparks and HP Lovecraft wrote a movie together. (4/5)

Ford v Ferrari (2019)

“American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car for Ford in order to defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.”

Oscar bait at it’s finest but it had just enough to entertained throughout. Nothing special here. I have seen better from Damon and Bale. The wife (Caitriona Balfe) of Bale’s character was one of the best parts of the film along with the two big races. 2 hours and 30 minutes was way too long for this cliched soulless film. It was all sizzle and no steak. Mangold does a good job of directing. (3.5/5)

Scanners (1981)

“A scientist sends a man with extraordinary psychic powers to hunt others like him.”

I remember liking this a lot more when I was younger but I also only remember one of the greatest deaths in movie history and the final battle scene. The rest was just slow plodding and bad acting. I thought there was more Ironside and that probably would have helped. Not one of Cronenberg’s best. I will recommend at least watching the first part of the movie once you get to the incredible death scene. (2.5/5)

The Maltese Falcon (1941)

“A private detective takes on a case that involves him with three eccentric criminals, a gorgeous liar, and their quest for a priceless statuette.”

I just don’t like old movies. I try. I really do but the way they talk is just annoying. Their cadence just grates on me. I enjoyed the story and mystery here and recognize this film’s importance. Peter Lorre was a fun character and one that stood out above the rest. (4/5)
