Beirut

Alright so let’s get expectations for this movie out of the way. something something it’s important to know where I’m coming from with things like this. I had absolutely no expectations for the movie Beirut, mostly because up until I saw it I had heard just about nothing about it. I just happened to check showtimes on my MoviePass app (#Notsponsored) and it had a poster with John Hamm up for this movie, I like John Hamm so why not go see it?  you never know right?

This week I saw A Quiet Place, The Death of Stalin, and Blockers and I talk about them in that order. I’ve been thinking a bunch about the video format for this and it just isn’t working out the way I hoped it would.
