Dora and the Lost City of Gold has us chuckling over its goofy supporting cast before moving on to a discussion of a boy and his dog, a boys’ club, and a boy we want to throw through a wall.

Does The Adventures of Tintin successfully avoid the Uncanny Valley? Does The Lost City of Z refuse to include one of its best characters in any meaningful way? And does Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close honor 9/11 or exploit it? All this and more on Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Treasure Hunts, and A Cappella Rave Music…

Men in Black: International has us both forgetting everything that happened in it and proud of ourselves for not once saying we were Neuralyzed by it as we use it as a catalyst for a discussion of two 50 year-old action heroes, another 50 year-old action hero, and another 50 year-old action hero. Yes… Another one!

Does Lethal Weapon 4 have more genuine character moments than action? Was Live Free or Die Hard oddly prophetic? And how, exactly, would Harry’s day be made in Sudden Impact? All this and more on Men in Black: International, Franchise Fourths, and The New Times…
