Pop Culture Happy Hour: Skyscraper and What’s Making Us Happy (which is, for me, Blindspotting)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I had a lovely time dissecting the laughably derivative, greenscreeny pleasures of Skyscraper with Pop Culture Happy Hour hosts Linda Holmes and Stephen Thompson and fellow friend-of-the-show Margaret H. Willison. This movie wants to be Die Hard, and it isn’t even as good as Johnson’s own Central Intelligence or Rampage.  It’s maybe on par with San Andreas.

I get a plug in during the What’s Making Us Happy segment for Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal’s Blindspotting, one of the two or three strongest movies I’ve seen this year. Buy a ticket to Blindspotting and watch Skyscraper on a flight or something.
