Faldor is back! We sit down for a look at Edgar Wright’s new flick about the heartwarming romance between boy and his iPod and also a girl he kind of likes, but maybe not LIKE likes, ’cause he’s not gonna get all mushy or anything. We compare it to other Edgar Wright films, crime pictures of the ’60s and ’70s, Reservoir Dogs, Ant-Man, Highlander, James Bond films, John Wick, Layer Cake, Highlander, Harry Potter, Where Eagles Dare, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Oedipus Rex, The Omen, and, of course, the first in the series: Baby’s Day Out.
Martin (Faldor is just a code-name he tells everyone) recommends the Ford Ka as a getaway car. We recast Doc. We disbelieve that any adult was a toddler when iPods came out. We try to figure out the timeline of the third act. We try to figure out why Kevin Spacey bothers to pack up his tiny car collection. And we try to figure out why Bats has bats tattooed on his neck (theory: everyone likes bats).
We’re watching the Blu-ray and a download and stay in sync. Start the movie on the countdown after the logos, right before the bank scene fades up.
