Grierson & Leitch Episode 21: Warcraft, Menace II Society, and Being John Malkovich

Legendary Pictures

It’s a bad week for new releases, but a great week for old ones. This week, film critics Tim Grierson and Will Leitch grudgingly watch Warcraft, a blockbuster summer movie based on the popular video game World of Warcraft. “Every creative decision,” Grierson says in his review, “made me either angry, or apoplectic, or just confused and depressed.”

Then, for the weekly Reboot, the guys re-watch the 1993 Hughes brothers movie Menace II Society, the story of young black men trying to survive the Los Angeles streets. They also discuss the 1999 surrealist comedy Being John Malkovich, written by Charlie Kaufman and starring John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, and, of course, John Malkovich.

Is there a movie from the first half of the year that Grierson and Leitch missed? In advance of their mid-year best movies list, tweet at them with suggestions of films from the first six months of 2016. You can also leave them a review on iTunes for a chance to hear a movie you love discussed on the show—just include the name of that movie at the end of your review.
