Cinemaholics Review: Only the Brave and The Snowman

only the brave

I’m on the show this week with Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to talk about Only the Brave, starring Miles Teller, Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly, and Taylor Kitsch. Based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, this is one of the year’s best surprises. It’s a biographical film about wildfires, sure, but it’s packing some seriously good performances and quite a few gut punches.

We’re also reviewing the less impressive The Snowman, directed by Tomas Alfredson and starring Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson. Despite being one of our highly anticipated fall films, Snowman left Will Ashton in particular feeling quite…cold. His words.

The rest of our mini reviews this week include a revisit of MINDHUNTER on Netflix, now that Maveryke and I have finished the first season. And Will talks about 1922, a new horror movie on Netflix based on the Stephen King novella.
