The Gentlemen

“I can’t be sure about the heroes and the zeroes, but our protagonist is a hungry animal.”

Here’s something you may not have expected to open up 2020: a Guy Ritchie Film about organized crime released in part by Miramax. Maybe around the turn of the Century sure, but we’ve got a fresh take on Guy Ritchie gold that came out in theaters this week with The Gentlemen. Naturally, we want to take a nip of this particular concoction and see how it holds up to the good old recipe of the past. This one has a fun cast of fan favorites with Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnum, Michelle Dockery, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell and more.

Check out this episode of the film board to find out which of our thugs has a special spot for Guy Ritchie on the mantle. Tommy, Steve, Pete and JJ will dig into what’s changed in the gangster films of today and what mysteries might still be left to mine in the genre. It’s kind of interesting that this weekend is Chinese New Year and opening up the year of the Rat! Let’s let the lion eat on the decade’s first episode of The Film Board.
