Megan is back from vacation so the whole Spoilerpiece team is together again! She and Evan start by reviewing Keith Thomas's FIRESTARTER (3:35), a remake of Stephen King's famous story, which they both agree and disagree about. Next, everyone covers Stefan Forbes's HOLD YOUR FIRE (15:51), a disappointing documentary about a 1972 crisis in New York City that helped create modern hostage negotiation teams and techniques. They wrap up with Carey Williams's EMERGENCY (37:49), an engaging dark comedy that offers poignant social commentary as three college students of color weigh the pros and cons of calling the police when they encounter an unexpected emergency. And in this week's Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Garry Marshall's 1990 rom-com PRETTY WOMAN starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.
