"I didn't punch a nun. And I didn't realize that walking out of those interviews, that that would be the greatest accomplishment for me. But I can stand here now and honestly tell you, with all the strength I had within me, I did not punch a nun."
Out of context, that's a weird quote. But after you hear ReelBlend co-host Jake Hamilton recount his time this week in Mexico City, attending the press event for the upcoming horror movie The Nun, you will understand why his restraint at striking these terrifying beings is worthy of recognition. Jake trekked to Mexico and, in the midst of torrential downpours, toured a terrifying, deserted convent, watched The Nun, and then interviewed the cast while THESE demons lingered, and haunted:
His recollection of the moment is definitely a highlight of this week's ReelBlend, so give it a listen.
That's not all that the guys talked about this week. Jake and Kevin McCarthy, Entertainment Reporter for Fox 5 in Washington, D.C., saw Searching, with John Cho and Debra Messing, and praised the film's unique premise and use of technology. The guys all weigh in on Ethan Hawke's strange dismissal of superhero movies -- choosing to zero in on the brilliant Logan, of all examples. And they try to make heads over tails of the latest Suspiria trailer. Good luck with that!
Finally, the #Blend game for this week was dedicated to the films of Brad Pitt, and the guys went in some wildly different directions. But changing the process from BEST role to FAVORITE role from an actor, director of screenwriter really has changed the replies, and it made the #Blend game that much better.
