‘On Cinema’: Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington’s Latest Twisted Reviews Take on ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘Nine Lives’

"When you got movies like Tom Cruise in 'em, you can't lose!"

“Nine Lives”

“Jared Lego.”

Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington’s particular brand of cringe humor isn’t for everyone, but the duo’s latest season of their wonderfully deranged (and honestly, kind of sad, but on purpose) Adult Swim movie review show, “On Cinema,” is tapping into the kind of broad comedic strokes the pair don’t normally go for. The result? Ten or so minutes of absolutely bizarre, embarrassing and deeply funny observations about movies and life itself.

In the newest episode of their series, the pair review (kind of) newbie blockbusters like “Suicide Squad” and “Nine Lives,” making the case for both films while also woefully misunderstanding their plots, mispronouncing their biggest stars’ names and nearly dying from a vape overdose along the way. Given the way this summer has played out, these ten minutes might actually be some of the best you’ll spend inside a movie theater this whole season (sort of).

Check out the latest episode of “On Cinema” below.
