About this Episode

Don’t tune into this episode for a Jump Cuts or Flickchart segment, because there isn’t one. The schedule’s full enough as it is, since the Screeners are taking on both a Marvel movie and a Danny Boyle movie.

Spider-Man: Far from Home is the first post- Endgame Marvel movie, so it either has a lot to live up to or has some ‘splainin’ to do, depending on your conclusions about Phase 3 of the MCU. If by some chance you lack an opinion on the issue, the Screeners have you covered.

For those of you who just aren’t that into superheroes (or who were into superheroes but had it beaten out of you after 57 or so movies), Yesterday is a movie from the director of Slumdog Millionaire that spent nearly half its budget on securing the rights to Beatles songs. Thankfully, it made at least that money back from its box office opening, but was the gamble worth it? We’ll let you know.

You know the drill—join the conversation on Facebook or Twitter to tell us how pumped you are(n’t) for Phase 4 and how plausible you find the idea of the Beatles’ music being popular when divorced entirely from their haircuts.
