The Cold Open #22–The Doc Days of Summer Edition

In the Cold Open #22, the Doc Days of Summer Edition, Matt Reynolds and Robert Sickels begin with a discussion of their recent early summer movie going experiences, including both Pitch Perfects, Mad Max: Fury Road (as well as its antecedents), Tomorrowland, Hot Pursuit, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ex Machina, and It Follows.  From there we move on to a close look at three documentaries recently released on HBO: Alex Gibney’s Going Clear, Brett Morgen’s Montage of Heck, and Nick Broomfield’s Tales of the Grim Sleeper. Our outro this episode is Nirvana’s cover of the Vaseline’s Jesus Don’t Want Me For a Sunbeam.  The Cold Open is on iTunes, so feel free to subscribe to it and have all the Cold Open goodness delivered to you immediately upon publication!
