Video reviewers Reel Geezers, the self-described “dynamic octogenarian duo,” are back on YouTube after a hiatus. What brought them back? “Yeah they didn’t die!!!” wrote one commenter. And Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master.”
Cranky screenwriter Lorenzo Semple Jr., after some “rest and refreshment,” and feisty producer Marcia Nasatir bring a veteran perspective to the movies. Their “The Master” debate is both spirited and charming. They talk about Scientology, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s “superb” acting and ask what the point of the movie is. Lorenzo says that he might have rather spent the time in the bar.
See for yourself below. And check out the Reel Geezers’ back catalogue, from “The Dark Knight,” “Into the Wild” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” to “He’s Just Not That Into You.”
