Hello, Dolly! / Annihilation

Sometimes a musical just needs to stay a musical, especially if you’re not going to film it well.

Welcome again to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we set our sights on 1890's New York and discuss the wiles of Ms. Dolly Levi and her schemes to find love. At least, that's what we would've done had Walter Matthau not been such a jerk. Enjoy our review of Hello, Dolly!

After the break, we get into a debate about whether Alex Garland’s Annihilation was an interesting and thoughtful addition to the sci-fi universe, or a total garbage pile. The answer is...well, it’s complicated.
