WTT - Dual

Nov. 30, 2022

An under-the-radar gem for those with off-kilter taste, the sci-fi film Dual is currently streaming on Hulu. Karen Gillan stars as a woman who commissions a clone of herself she must later try to kill when the clone threaten…

WTT All-Star - Training Day

Nov. 28, 2022

To give you something you can't get elsewhere, I tracked down the screenplay for Training Day, and this episode, I bring you the most interesting things in the script for Training Day that were not in the final film. Did you…

WTT - 1899

Nov. 25, 2022

A worthy successor to Lost. It only took 18 years. Seriously, 1899 is that rare combination of a great, spooky, intriguing premise, with a diverse, complex, ensemble cast, and an anything-goes sensibility that makes every tu…

WTT All-Star - Friday (w/guest Rolling Stone writer Andy Frye)

Nov. 23, 2022

A guest? On this show? Yes, for the first time in Watch This Tonight history, I’ve brought on a guest, Forbes, Rolling Stone and ESPN writer Andy Frye, who joins the show to discuss his Watch This Tonight All-Star movie, Ice…

WTT - Oldboy

Nov. 21, 2022

The gateway drug to Korea cinema. One of my favorite films of all time. By one of the leaders of Korea cinema (Park Chan-Wook) and starring one of its most accomplished actors (Choi Min-Sik). Includes incredible displays of …

WTT - This Fool

Nov. 18, 2022

Continuing their winning streak, Hulu has another really funny half-hour comedy series, with This Fool. A simple but winning premise (straight-laced man who works in ex-con rehabilitation takes in his ex-con cousin), clever …

WTT - Tulsa King

Nov. 16, 2022

There was no way I wasn't going to do an episode on Tulsa King. I have been excitedly awaiting this show since it was announced - Terry Winter (The Sopranos) and Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Yellowstone, Mayor of Kingstown) wor…

WTT All-Star - Casino

Nov. 14, 2022

Recent events in California gambling have shown that the film Casino is not out of date. This movie, an unlikely cable TV all-star (how many times did this air on TNT? 10,000 times?) is one I understand more as I get older, …

WTT - Cabinet of Curiosities

Nov. 11, 2022

Come for my meet-cute encounter with Guillermo Del Toro, stay for discussion of his new Netflix anthology horror show, Cabinet of Curiosities. The first episode is a great evocation of the premise, with a creepy original sto…

WTT - Smile

Nov. 9, 2022

Watch This Tonight gets out of the house for this episode, about the out-of-nowhere smash hit horror film Smile. Smile is just finishing up its theatrical run, so if it's still playing in your area I encourage you to seek it…

WTT - Andor Hits Its Stride Midseason

Nov. 7, 2022

In an unprecedented turn of events, for the first time ever on Watch This Tonight, we're doing the same show, again, because Episode 9 of Andor is so good it immediately vaulted to being the number one show on television for…

WTT Comfort Food - Neighbors

Nov. 4, 2022

I have no memory of my first viewing of this film, because at the time I was (one of the only times in my entire life) under the influence of a substance the younger characters in this film adore. So it seemed like a great m…

WTT - The White Lotus (Season 2)

Nov. 2, 2022

Ahhh Italy. You don't have to have seen Season 1 of HBO's The White Lotus to enjoy season 2. Just hop on the boat with Michael Imperioli, Jennifer Coolidge, F. Murray Abraham, Aubrey Plaza, and Theo James and luxuriate in th…

WTT - Barbarian OR An Ode To Justin Long

Oct. 31, 2022

Barbarian is an impossible movie to talk about without spoiling. So instead, I decided to talk about Justin Long, and why he might be horror cinema's most underrated and accomplished jack-of-all-trades, great as the wet-blan…

WTT - The Good Nurse

Oct. 28, 2022

Possibly the most prolific killer in American history. He didn't use a knife, or a gun. He used medication, and the hospital system. He killed people at their most vulnerable, and what makes this story so frightening is that…

WTT - The Stranger

Oct. 26, 2022

A crime thriller that is arguably just as much an arthouse horror movie, this Netflix film takes an unexpected path into its story, inspired by an infamous true crime from Australia. Joel Edgerton and Sean Harris are tremend…

WTT All-Star - The Irishman

Oct. 24, 2022

Bizarrely a comfort food movie for me, I'd love to know if Martin Scorsese's The Irishman works similarly for you. Arguably handicapped because its massive length makes for a trickier watch on streaming, despite being nomina…

WTT - The Watcher

Oct. 21, 2022

Who watches The Watcher? Apparently, a lot of people. This instant hit for Netflix benefits from a great, creepy, what-if-it-happened-to-you premise. But the real fun of it is the darkly subversive nature of the show's relat…

Halloween Evergreen WTT Pick - Upgrade

Oct. 19, 2022

For Halloween, I wanted to give you an evergreen pick that is on my short-list of awesome movies not everyone has seen, Leigh Whannell's Upgrade, starring Logan Marshall-Green. What makes this movie so great is that it's kin…

WTT All-Star - The Sopranos

Oct. 17, 2022

We're all trapped by our families. This is the central idea that makes The Sopranos great. I had no understanding of this as a 17-year-old, when I first tried to watch this television series. I had a much better understandin…

WTT - The Black Phone

Oct. 14, 2022

If you missed this in theaters like me, and you were debating watching it now, definitely do it. The Black Phone is an instant horror classic, from Ethan Hawke's villain's iconic mask, to Scott Derrickson's strong direction …

WTT - Alaska Daily

Oct. 12, 2022

Rockstar creative team (pilot written and directed by Tom McCarthy, of Spotlight) lead what is in some ways like a TV sequel to the Oscar-winning film Spotlight, starring Hilary Swank as a hard-charging reporter who is embro…

WTT All-Star - Snatch

Oct. 10, 2022

Found a fresh way into this, as I did with The Departed, I'm bringing you the top 5 lines that are in the Snatch script, which are NOT in the final film, as means to further illustrate what makes the movie so singular (Guy R…
