#104: Four Brothers
Episode Description: This week, Summer Blockbuster!?! gets into the holiday spirit as we take on 2005’s Thanksgiving-set revenge tale Four Brothers, directed by John Singleton. Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin, and Garrett Hedlund star as foster brothers who return home to Detroit to bury their mother, who was gunned down execution-style in a robbery gone wrong. They will stop at nothing to find the killers, including elder abuse, animal abuse, child abuse…really, any and all forms of abuse. Did we mention this film is also incredibly misogynistic and homophobic? Yep, get ready for an overload of the festive warm and fuzzies!
