On the latest Cinemaholics, Will Ashton and I review Beauty and the Beast and Season 1 of Iron Fist. In doing so, our main question is whether or not critics and audiences are right to be so divided on these movies.
Later, we dig into some mini reviews for Big Little Lies, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch, and Wilson, which stars Woody Harrelson. Hope you enjoy our ranting.
YOU TELL US: Do you think Beauty and the Beast and Iron Fist deserve their mixed reviews? And what did you think of either of them?

Since Hollywood isn’t planning on slowing down with the remakes and Kong: Skull Island is now in theaters, the gang talks about the movies they think merit a remake. We also discuss what should be considered when remaking a franchise or a standalone movie, from respecting the original story to the style the director chooses to portray it. If you stick around long enough, you will hear Maria and Sam basically screaming out all the things wrong about Kong: Skull Island. Don’t worry. No one was harmed during the rant.
Question of the Week: What is your favorite movie remake? What movie do you think deserves a remake and why?
Additional Question: What is your favorite pick for our new podcast name?
