The Lego Movie 2 / Velvet Buzzsaw / Miss Bala

Jokes and gender politics in the new Lego sequel.

"The Lego Movie" was Josh's #1 film of 2014. Dan Gilroy's "Nightcrawler" made Adam's Top 10 of the same year. Five years later, Emmet Brickowski and the rest of the master builders return for THE LEGO MOVIE 2 - and Gilroy is back, too, with the art scene satire VELVET BUZZSAW, another darkly satirical take on a Los Angeles subculture. Also on the show: Josh's thoughts on Catherine Hardwicke's MISS BALA, Massacre Theatre and an announcement about the next Filmspotting Marathon.
