AKA The One Where Bridget and Maria Become Best Friends and Talk About LIFE. The boys took a week off from the podcast, which left Bridget and Maria to bond extensively over their love and hate for the new sci-fi movie Life – directed by Daniel Espinosa. Bridget brings up some Would You Rather questions and geeks out hard over Calvin the Alien, and Maria masterfully manipulated Bridget into liking her more than Sam.
Question of the Week: Answer the Would You Rather questions and give us new ones for next week!
This week on Cinemaholics, I’m joined by Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to review Power Rangers, Life, and Season 2 of Love. But we begin with a quick look at the new Justice League trailer and debate the merits of the DCEU, going all the way back to Green Lantern at one point.

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?
