An early 2024 action release that is already causing a stir is Argylle. Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, The Kingsmen, & X-Men: First Class), this film follows writer Elly Conway (Bryce Dallas Howard) as her spy novels start to become eerily close to the truth. This film features a stacked cast alongside Howard, including Henry Cavill, Dua Lipa, John Cena, Sam Rockewell, Bryan Cranston, and Samuel L. Jackson. Host Tyler Valencia starts this episode by sharing who he thinks would enjoy this movie. Espionage-type movies are typically big hits and one of the mainstays in Director Vaughn’s arsenal, but this film leans heavily into his unique action style. Argylle, as a movie, is not dark, not gritty, and not necessarily a movie that leans into real-life situations, but rather is a fun time on screen and features action scenes that are bright and funny.

Tyler’s biggest issue with this movie is how it was marketed. Tyler goes into a rant about how movies these days are trying to trick audiences into heading into the theater instead of showcasing visuals and stories, which is part of the experience of going to the movie theater. The marketing for Argylle puts three actors center-stage who are not the main characters and dismisses features of Vaughn’s filmmaking that get his fans to the theater.
