The Devil All The Time & The Vow
Netflix seems to be specializing in lukewarm dramas. 'The Devil All The Time,' at the least, comes with a oh-so-serious-it-becomes-campy vibe. The movie feels like an expensive sizzle reel for Tom Spider-Man Holland. 'Look, ma, I can act!'

Co-Director Talks SPOOKIES Documentary
While drinking heavily, we watched then talked about "Twisted Tale: The Unmaking of Spookies" with Glen Baisley, the documentary's co-director. "Spookies" was famously(?) ripped away from the original directors and screenwriter, and finished by another director who shot scenes that had nothing to do with the original story. The end result is a movie that requires you to be under the influence while watching. WARNING: this episode assumes you know the backstory, because we're dumb, drunk, and context-free.
