Harold and Maude / Tomb Raider, Thoroughbreds
"L-I-V-E! Live! Otherwise you got nothing to talk about in the locker room."
Welcome once again to another exciting episode of Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we kick off our "Love is In the Air" series by discussing love, life and happiness through the romance of a suicide-obsessed 17-year-old and a car-jacking, smooth-talking septugenarian. It's Harold and Maude!
After the break, we double down on new movies and talk about the new and improved, action-packed Tomb Raider and the unsettling and subtle Thoroughbreds. Both deliver on exactly what the audience came for, and both (depending on your mood) are well worth watching. Just, you know, make sure you get the popcorn for one of them...
