1. The Iron Claw on Amazon

FINALLY got to watch this movie but heads up, we DID purchase it at FULL PRICE (what am I, the 1%???). Yes you read that right, we PURCHASED it. It now lives in my library nestled between She’s The Man and Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead. And yes, it does trouble me that I purchased this movie yet I still don’t have a physical copy of it, and my ability to see Zac Efron’s mind boggling face and body still relies on the kindness of god himself, aka the Amazon Web Services. Wait, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, The Iron Claw! Holy Jesus you guys this one is a doozy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great, but it’s one of the saddest movies I’ve ever seen. Like, Forrest Gump sad - honestly maybe more sad. The acting is fantastic, I live for the 80s style wrestling graphics and there’s lots of buff guys in little panties - no complaints! And tbh, I spent 100% of the movie just marveling at what Zac Efron looks like. It’s just mesmerizing. What happened??? Where is my beautiful baby Troy Bolton?? It’s like Troy Bolton became the Hulk and got stuck. Regardless, I highly recommend this movie as a very convincing cautionary tale of family expectations and control. What an absolutely bonkers story!

2. The In Crowd on Prime

I think watching Lying Eyes last week set us on an incredible journey of exploring sub 10% Rotten Tomatoes rated poopbombs from the 90s and 00s. Thus we have The In Crowd, aka 90 minutes of me just saying “I’ve definitely seen this before” repeatedly. You know when you watch something that is buried so deeply in the recesses of your brain that you realize that the thing it’s reminding you of is itself? Yeah, that’s what happened. Oh my god this movie was perfection. Long story short, Adrien (17F lol) is released from a psychiatric hospital when her doctor gets her a living/working situation at his country club (lololol). But Adrien is so beautiful and mysterious that “the in crowd,” specifically IT girl Brittany (17F although she don’t be acting like it), starts bringing her into their clique. Craziness ensues (including a missing sister named SONNNDRA lolol), and these teens just go crazy. This movie is so obscure and low budget that it’s earned a VERY impressive 2% on Rotten Tomatoes! That’s such an accomplishment you guys, congrats. This movie also came out in the year 2000, so it falls into an extremely niche category of elder millennial teen thrillers. I honestly could talk about this movie forever, but I will stop here, but feel free to reach out about it!

3. You Should Have Left on Peacock

Ok so we absolutely missed this movie when it came out in 2020, which is shocking considering we're big Seyfried-heads. It got onto our radar after watching a parody TikTok about it and its premise. Basically, Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried are married with a daughter and they end up renting an isolated house off in Wales because of, ya know, problems. The thing is, the house has its own issues, and Kevin Bacon has to do a protect. This movie’s fun in like an M.C. Escher kind of way. It’s almost like the movie Labyrinth but without everything. I dunno watch it if you’re bored and like Kevin Bacon.
