Critically Acclaimed #127 | The Lovebirds, Blood Machines, Fire (Pozar), Modest Heroes, The Painter and the Thief, and Hell Comes to Frogtown

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED has the hottest new movies this week!

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae rom-com THE LOVEBIRDS (Netflix), the eye-popping sci-fi spectacular BLOOD MACHINES (Shudder), David Lynch's new short FIRE (POZAR) (YouTube), the anime anthology film MODEST HEROES (Netflix), and the unusual new documentary THE PAINTER AND THE THIEF (Hulu)!

And this week on THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney are forced to revisit the 1988 cult oddity HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN, in which wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper plays the last virile man on Earth, who has to rescue women kidnapped by humanoid frog monsters in order to perpetuate the species!

Is there any way that's actually a good movie? Anyway at all? 

Give it a listen and find out!
