It’s Michael Caine vs. killer bees in THE SWARM, a big budget disaster movie with an amazing cast, which is also one of the worst and dumbest movies ever made. It’s so bad we had to whip out the big guns for our double feature: Alfred Hitchcock’s THE BIRDS, an experimental horror thriller that still, to this day, practically defies categorization. Except for the killer animals part. What does THE BIRDS do right that THE SWARM does so wrong? You’ll find out in this week’s episode. You’ll also get reviews of M. Night Shyamalan’s GLASS, and the competing documentaries FYRE FRAUD, from Hulu, and FYRE: THE GREATEST PARTY THAT NEVER HAPPENED!
