What the Flick?! — The Trip to Italy

Alonso and I both enjoyed seconds with “The Trip to Italy,” the sequel to the 2011 comedy “The Trip.” Co-stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon once again play versions of themselves and improvise their dialogue while hopping from one delicious meal and scenic locale to the next. Instead of the English countryside, this time they’re in Italy. But beneath the steady stream of laughs, there’s an undercurrent of melancholy.

What the Flick?! — Guardians of the Galaxy

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is the cheekiest, wackiest sci-fi blockbuster you’ll see all summer. Great cast, inspired visuals and a blast of a soundtrack of ’70s pop tunes which will be stuck in your head long afterward. Trust me.

What the Flick?! — Get on Up

Matt, Alonso and I were all shocked at how good “Get on Up” is and how it breathes life into the musical biopic, a genre that’s typically riddled with cliches. (See: “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.” No really, you should see it.) Chadwick Boseman is completely captivating as James Brown and the film as a whole is massively entertaining.

What the Flick?! — The Purge: Anarchy

Ben and I were stunned that the sequel to “The Purge” is so much better than the original. Writer-director James DeMonaco expands on his clever idea both geographically and emotionally. It’s the best movie in a bad week for movies.

What the Flick?! — Snowpiercer

Believe the hype, guys — this movie is bad-ass. Bong Joon-ho’s film has serious things to say about class disparity but it’s also thrilling in its surprises and dazzling in its production design. If it’s not playing near you, please check it out through video on demand.
