So we’ve come to this an experiment that started with a fun premise and ended with 3/4 of our group traumatized. Now I (Jonathan) had a little theory that Alex automatically would just say that he hated every movie that I suggested while loving all Matt’s suggestions. To test this theory I told him that Matt had suggested the movie Tusk for this weeks movie when in reality it was my pick. However things didn’t go as planned, instead of loving it Alex still hated this movie and we were all left with scenes that aren’t leaving our memory banks anytime soon.
Tusk follows Wallace (Justin Long), a podcaster that will do anything for views and often gets his content at someone else’s expense. He takes a trip to Canada to interview the latest viral internet star. When his interview subject for the week dies Wallace scrambles to find a new person to interview so he doesn’t Canada without anything to show for it. At a local bar Wallace finds an add that just might be what he’s looking for.
An old sailor is looking for someone to rent a room in his mansion and listen to his life’s amazing stories… or at least that’s what he says. In truth this old sailor wants to turn Wallace into a walrus (Yes you read that correctly). What follows is one of the most disturbing movies we’ve reviewed for this podcast. On top of that it’s billed as a horror comedy and it does NOT blend these genres well.
So if you’re so inclined join us this week as we watch Kevin Smith‘s horror movie Tusk. Together we’ll answer the age old question “Is man indeed a walrus at heart?”
