Top 5 Remakes of All Time (Anyway, That’s All I Got)


In the inaugural episode of the Cinemaholics spin-off, ‘Anyway, That’s All I Got,’ we celebrated the recreation of our brand by counting down our top 5 favorite remakes of all time. We took on the entirety of cinema, and our lists turned out to be surprisingly unpredictable.

We’d love to know what your thoughts on the show, as well as what some of your favorite remakes are. More importantly, what did we miss? There are probably thousands of remakes out there and plenty that we’ve never seen or heard of, but for now, here are our top picks. Enjoy!

Cinemaholics Review: Black Panther

Black Panther

I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off Season 2 of Cinemaholics than to dive into Black Panther, one of the most hyped movies of the year and yet another huge hit for Marvel and Disney. I’m sure most of you had gotten a taste for how gargantuan this movie has become in the last few months, but putting aside all the hype, I had a great conversation about Black Panther with cohosts Will Ashton, Maveryke Hines, and special guest Adonis Gonzalez (yes, it’s a Now Conspiring reunion!)

A highlight of the episode is probably the heated discussion about Early Man between me and Will Ashton, and by heated I mean meteoric. And we’ve got some other mini reviews to get to that deserve to be on your radar: The RitualGame Night (which we’ll be probably talk more about in the coming weeks), Tamborine, and  the new video game Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Cinemaholics Review: The Cloverfield Paradox and Peter Rabbit


On the pod this week, we review The Cloverfield ParadoxPeter RabbitThe 15:17 to Paris, and quite a few more flicks and shows you can see above. We also had a few big announcements for the show, which is partly why we had special guest Sam Noland join us for the full episode.

First up, Cinemaholics is now on Spotify, so if that’s your streaming platform of choice, you can find our full archive right here.

Second, we are now on Patreon, which means you can support this podcast and get access to a bunch of new perks we’re rolling out, including some hilarious bonus audio from this week’s show. It’s an uncensored conversation between me and Will Ashton as we waited for Sam to get ready for the episode, as we normally talk about random tangents, ideas for the podcast, and other inside baseball topics.

It’s the 50th episode of Cinemaholics, and to celebrate, we invited special guest Alex Billington of to talk about all things Sundance. The iconic festival has been home to countless great movies over the years, but it’s almost impossible to see all of them. Fortunately, we manage to talk about a good number of good flicks, including The TaleAssassination NationWon’t You Be My NeighborTully, Bodied, and plenty more.

Question for you: We have a lot of movies to pick from for this coming week to be our featured review. Let us know what you would rather hear a review for: Peter RabbitThe 15:17 to ParisFifty Shades Freed, or The Cloverfield Paradox?

Cinemaholics Review: Maze Runner: The Death Cure and Hostiles

death cure

I’m not entirely sure why I care so much about the Maze Runner series at this point, now finishing with The Death Cure. I enjoyed the first film and even the second one to an extent (silliness and all). But it’s been nearly three years and I’m struggling to figure out if there’s much of a fan base left after all this time.

If there is, then this latest episode of Cinemaholics will do you good. If you couldn’t care less, that’s also fine. We also took a look at some other noteworthy releases. There’s Hostiles, a new western starring Christian Bale. Black Lightning, the new CW superhero show. Please Stand By, a new indie film that just hit VOD. A Futile and Stupid Gesture, a new original Netflix film about the making of National Lampoon. And The Breadwinner, which was just nominated for Best Animated Feature by the Academy Awards.

Cinemaholics Review: Paddington 2 and The Commuter

Paddington 2

Everyone’s favorite marmalade-loving bear is back for seconds in Paddington 2, the sequel to the film that utterly charmed me back in 2015. On the show this week, I review the film with cohosts Maveryke Hines (who never saw the original) and Will Ashton. The movie has an incredible 100% review aggregate on Rotten Tomatoes, but that doesn’t mean everyone on Cinemaholics agrees.

In our Mini Reviews segment, we covered a lot of other movies and shows you might want to check out. Will reviewed The Commuter, starring Liam Neeson. Maveryke and I talked about the The End of the F****** World, a binge-worthy new show on Netflix. Will recommended Blame, an indie gem directed by Quinn Shephard. Then we both dug into The PostMolly’s Game, and My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.

We also talked at length about the Golden Globes this week, but less about the actual awards and more about the impact of the MeToo and TimesUp movement, plus our plan to take part in the 52 Films By Women Challenge.

Cinemaholics Podcast: Our Top 10 Movies of 2017


2017 is over, but we’re just getting started. I’m not usually the biggest fan of conversations over general rankings (my yearly power rankings aside), but I do find them most useful years later, when I’m trying to remember what I thought of the filmgoing landscape with some perspective. That’s why I do rankings, period, and it’s triple effective when I get to hear Top 10s from my Cinemaholics cohosts.

Our lists do feature some expected overlap, including a clear Cinemaholics “winner,” if you want to call it that. Turns out Brigsby Bear had the most collective impact on me, Will Ashton, and Maveryke Hines, and hopefully some of you awesome listeners.

Enjoy the episode, and if you just can’t wait, here are our Top 10 lists written out below.
