This week, we watch Gattaca, the sci-fi film that imagines a not-too-distant future where everybody's perfect, ESPECIALLY Uma Thurman. Plus, inspired by Gattaca's unease with cloning and genetic manipulation, Rhea and Ricky pitch the next great blockbuster that will feed on our fears.

This is the second and final week of the 2014 MaxFunDrive AKA the best time to show Wham Bam Pow your support. If you love the show, please take a moment to become a member of MaxFun or upgrade your existing membership! Thank you!

I really liked the world they created for this movie. The 60's and noir aesthetic were pretty well executed. I also liked how he was saved by the real murderer being caught. It's been done before, but I was relieved when I realized that was happening. All this said, I have to agree with Ricky; it's hard to be invested in the story or characters. It only starts to get interesting halfway through the movie when Alan Arkan gets closer to finding Ethan Hawke out and none of the characters are particularly likable.

I am glad I saw this movie though, since I had never seen it before, but I'll probably never watch it again.


I really thought the janitor and Ethan Hawke's manager were the same person and was ready for a Undercover Bosses situation. They really looked so similar.
