Two movies titled Tully enter, only one will leave (with that title) as Herman “OmegaPrime” Davis and Robert Rau watch Charlize Theron battle with getting old — and an indie movie battle with unnecessary obscurity — to determine which should be called Tully.
This might be the strangest entry for this podcast as this episode deals with an uncommon first (or last) name which bears no real significance to the story of a film.
Our first movie is the latest collaboration between Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody. It stars Charlize Theron as a mom of three who needs help, and gets some from a night nurse named Tully. Charlize knows what it takes to make this character more real, and turns this movie into something great.
The second film surprised Herman and Robert, and will join our exclusive “actually a good movie” club. The Tully this time is a guy dealing with small town stuff and a Dad holding back some important truths. This film was a pleasant surprise and was well worth the two bucks on Youtube, which is currently the only way anyone can watch this.
This one won’t be a toughie, but is either movie good enough to call itself Tully? Listen if you dare.
Do you have an idea or even want to join the “There Can Be Only One” gang at their next viewing party? Email Robert Rau with your movie suggestion, the days you’re free to watch, and how much beer you can bring.
