The New Mutants (2020)

Surprise! We're opening the Patreon vault to deliver an episode on a film with one of the most infamously troubled production histories of all time. That's right! After years (literally years) of waiting, we are discussing Josh Boone's adaptation of The New Mutants and it's.....fine?

After spending a good amount of this episodes runtime going through the film's laborious production history and discussing the racist accusations lobbied against the film, we educate ourselves on the source material before doing a deep dive into the film itself.

We've got a front-and-center queer romance, lots of garbage CGI, teenage trauma porn, mostly solid accent work and a blessed 86-minute runtime. Does it all work? Absolutely not. But it's not as bad as it could have been, so we guess that's something?
