  • Mainstream



    Sometimes I think about watching more bad movies. Just to help even out my watches against all the good ones. From what I heard about it going in, I was expecting Mainstream to be quite the terrible flick. Especially when hearing about Andrew Garfield’s performance.

We loved it during its run from 2012-2016, and still do today. I bring this up because Michael Rianda, a writer on the show, as well as being involved in its production overall, has recently emerged with his directorial debut: The Mitchells vs the Machines. This is a film that’s sort of been on my…
