In this week’s podcast, Glenn and Daniel return to the stylish world of writer/director Edgar Wright, and find it strangely exhausting this time around. Can an array of fun gangster performances overcome an oppressive soundtrack and wasted, one-dimensional female leads? We’ll struggle to find out (27:52).

FilmWonk rating: 5 out of 10
- Music for this episode is the tracks “B-A-B-Y” by Carla Thomas, and “Bellbottoms” by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, from the film’s soundtrack.

I’m a big music nerd (and Jon Spencer fan). I still didn’t really like the soundtrack
I found when I was editing the podcast that I enjoyed the songs more outside of the film, but that Bell Bottoms song has such a strained intro- I just lose patience with it.
