Special guest Andy Herndon from The D-Cast came on Cinemaholics this week for a spirited discussion about Steven Soderbergh’s new film, the rural heist “comedy” Logan Lucky. Of course, we also found time to dig into some other notable films, including The Hitman’s BodyguardWind River (one of my favorite movies of the summer), and The Glass Castle.

Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines were also on the show this week, and we had a bit of a debate going on around Logan Lucky in particular. We also got some closure on Will’s opinion of Annabelle: Creation early on in the show, and Mav and I talked about a couple of shows we’ve been watching this week, including Marvel’s The Defenders Season 1 on Netflix.

Soderbergh’s ‘Logan Lucky’ Is A Heartland Heist Worth Watching

Logan Lucky was directed by Steven Soderbergh, the man behind the Ocean’s 11 films and Magic Mike. It features hilarious characters, farfetched schemes, and a leisurely pace that will take some by surprise, but like its band of robbers, it’s a film that’s easy to underestimate.

Cinemaholics Review: Annabelle: Creation

On this latest episode of Cinemaholics, I sat down with Maveryke Hines to review Annabelle: Creation, the new horror film out of “The Conjuring universe.” We also had a great conversation about our favorite horror films and started things off with a trailer breakdown of mother!, the upcoming Darren Aronofsky film.

Our conversation is spoiler-free up until the 40 minute mark, but after that is fair game. And I want to take a moment to mention a few podcasts we plugged this week that we encourage you to check out if you’re a fan of Cinemaholics.

Many of you already know and love Part-Time Characters since it’s hosted on this website. But we also mentioned The Legendarium Podcast, a fantastic resources for fans of fantasy books and the occasional movie review. I recently guested on their show to talk about The Dark Tower, and it was definitely time well spent.

There’s also Down the Hall, a great “take back movie night” podcast with recommendations for streaming releases from Chet and Rodney, plus celebrity interviews. Be sure to check them out.
