Bonus! Lise also recommends Resident Evil (2002—holy crap, Milla Jovovich) and Andi recommends Get Out (2017).

And this week, Lise is raving about author Seanan McGuire’s work, particularly The Girl in the Green Silk Gown, while Andi got all kinds of feels watching the scifi robot fight circuit movie Real Steel. (srsly. Weepy.)
