This week, Alex and Wesley discuss the James Brown biographical dramedy Get on Up, which Alex really liked and Wesley liked fine. But they agree that Chadwick Boseman is great. Wesley also spends a few minutes trying to help make sense of why Alex hasn’t lost his mind over Guardians of the Galaxy. Basically, he’s entitled to be meh.
