The Breakdown of 'Dunkirk', 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' and 'Fantastic Four'


The Breakdown serves up another hot and tasy plate of new releases reviews with Christopher Nolan's foray into World War 2 in Dunkirk and as well Luc Besson campy space opera adventure, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. We also go all way the back to the distant year of 2015 to review the comic book misfire, Fantastic Four. As well we have some topic discussions where we debate if Netflix is right with their distribution model for their original movies and also if comedies still work as a theatrical experience after the string of high profil failures. As always if you love the show then please shout about it to the heavens so that other movie lovers may hear.

Remember you can now subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes.
