You Did Me Wrong: Assassins Edition | Episode 44
Posted October 17, 2016
This week, Noah and Chance climb out of hell with three contract killers left for dead. They begin with "Kill Bill, Vol. 1," asking whether this is a turning point in the scope of Tarantino's genre bloodbaths. At 18:10, they analyze Mel Gibson's lost and compromised stardom in "Payback" (1999) and quibble over when this Hollywood noir riff is set. When "John Wick" is approached at 28:15, they ask if you can reverse engineer a good-good movie by starting with Keanu Reeves as a ridiculous sleeping giant and adding enough style and world to make it sing.
