Episode 70: Vice and Mary Queen of Scots


First of all, happy holidays to everyone and thank you so much for all your support and love for our podcast! Episode 70 will be recording some time later this week, and we will be reviewing Adam McKay’s Vice and the fiery new historical drama, Mary Queen of Scots. We will also probably cover some new trailers, answer listener questions (please send us some!), discuss some recent things we’ve been watching like Bumblebee, Assassination Nation, The House That Jack Built, Mowgli: King of the Jungle, London Town, and much more

Vice tells the story of notorious Vice President Dick Cheney. During the George W. Bush administration, Cheney became an integral part of how today’s country was shaped. Writer-director Adam McKay most recently did the scathing Wall Street drama, The Big Short, and seems to be returning in fine form once again with Vice. The film stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell, and Sam Rockwell. It is currently playing in theaters.


Mary Queen of Scots is the riveting tale of the 1569 conflict between the titular leader and her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I of England. It is based on John Guy’s biography Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart. The film is directed by Josie Rourke, written by House of Cards‘ creator Beau Willimon, and stars Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, David Tennant,  and Guy Pearce. It is currently playing in theaters.

Happy holidays and happy listening, buddies!

  1. Preet Bharara interviewed McKay recently in the former’s podcast. Cheney is an evil, manipulative genius, Trump is a bold, if idiot, con artist. Too bad Mckay can’t step in and fix the current, entirely corrupt Trump administration… or maybe Vice will help point out some of issues We The People now need to address to avoid the pitfalls of a government run by a malignant narcissist. We’ll see! I’m looking forward to your review of both these interesting subjects. Cheers!
