Our Guilty Pleasure Movies (Anyway, That’s All I Got)

guilty pleasure

This week, we decided to have a laid-back discussion about our guilty pleasure movies: the movies we kind of like, but don’t want to admit it. It’s a free-flowing conversation, basically, and a chance for us hosts to learn a lot more about each other’s tastes and…weaknesses?

Let us know what you think of this format, and also let us know what some of your guilty pleasure movies are! They can come from anywhere, so we’d love to know what you take (guilty) pleasure in. Also, since everyone has their own definition, what does the phrase ‘guilty pleasure’ mean to you? And finally, what do you want to hear from the show? Are there any topics, franchises, or formats that you would be interested to hear us talk about?

For our second episode, we’re following up last week’s “best remakes” by discussing the other side of remakes: The Bad Side. We take a little time at the beginning to get to know the hosts a bit more, and then we get into our lists, highlighting the worst remakes of all time. Needless to say, we had some stuff to get off our chests.

We’d love to hear what some of your least favorite remakes are, or what we might have missed, and we’d also love to see your ‘Cinemaholic Bios.’ Comment below and let us know!

With so much to choose from, it’s hard to sit down and pick one Netflix series that’s worth watching. Not to worry! Hopefully Part-Time Characters can help with any indecisiveness. While Maria works the solo shift in this fictional video store, recurring guest and video store client, Jerry Rodriguez, joins this week’s episode to talk about Netflix shows and specials that are worth a try.

Cinemaholics Review: Phantom Thread, 12 Strong, Den of Thieves

Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread is the newest film from director Paul Thomas Anderson, reuniting with Daniel Day-Lewis, one of my favorite actors in Hollywood (and one of the best cinematic performers of all time). I sat down with Will Ashton and special guest Kimber Myers of The Playlist to discuss the new movie, which also stars Lesley Manville and Vicky Krieps.

In our Mini Reviews segment, we covered a wide range of different movies, from the patriotic true story war film 12 Strong to the laid-back airport romance flick Forever My Girl. Plus Den of Thieves, a new heist action movie starring Gerard Butler, along with a quick review of The Alienist, a new show coming to TNT. Netflix has a new original film out called Step Sisters from the same director of Drumline. And an under-the-radar VOD release called Mom and Dad starring Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair.

We also took some time to discuss the impending Oscar nominations (now made public), so you can hear how wrong or right our predictions were.  Continue reading Cinemaholics Review: Phantom Thread, 12 Strong, Den of Thieves

Which is Better? Star Wars: The Force Awakens vs. Rogue One

Comparisons between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have always been an inevitable result of these two movies releasing just 12 months apart. And though they’re two very different films (one is a franchise opener and the other a prequel standalone), TFA and RO are both representative of the future that is Star Wars, one of the most beloved mythologies in modern history.
