Another odd ball double feature from Shout Factory, Easy Money and Men At Work are a couple non-essential yet fun 80s/early 90s comedies that certainly aren't without their charms.

Eschewing the straight-laced (and sadly often boring) grindhouse aesthetic of its predecessor, Machete Kills dives headlong into off-the-wall comedy like it probably should have done in the first place. It’s still way too long and the energy considerably flags towards the conclusion, but at least the laughs are fairly consistent throughout and there’s hardly anything that can be called a lull in the action and gags.

We talk to A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III writer and director and current Academy Award nominee Roman Coppola about creating his latest trippy, mind bending comedy, working with Liam Hayes on the film's groovy soundtrack, subliminal messages in advertising, working with Charlie Sheen and Bill Murray, and why he likes coming back to the same kinds of characters.
