Cinemaholics Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

soldado

Sam Noland is back on the show again for the first time in a while to help us review Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s surprise 2015 hit. You’ll notice this is an extra-long episode of the show (mainly by accident), and part of the reason is because our Day of the Soldado review might just be our longest one yet that doesn’t include spoilers. We had a fascinating discussion about the movie, coming at it from about as many angles as you can imagine.

We had a lengthy movie news segment as well, which you’ll see in the show notes for the image. Plus an early mini review for Ant-Man & The Wasp that leaves out any and all spoilers. From there, our mini reviews got pretty laid back, especially once Sam broke out the Jeff Goldblum impression. While editing this episode, I couldn’t help but save it all and let you hear the full version.

Question for you: What is your favorite Jeff Goldblum movie?

Cinemaholics Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

fallen kingdom

This week on Cinemaholics, I’m joined by special guest Jake Holland and my co-host Will Ashton to review Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Is the “fallen kingdom” in question the state of the Jurassic Park franchise at this point? Well, according to the box office, definitely not. We had a great conversation about the series as a whole and leading up to this new film from J.A. Bayona, and we’ve even included a brief section for spoilers (with fair warning of course).

We opened this week’s show with some Off-Topics, including a rundown of Incredibles 2 breaking all kinds of box office records, plus how Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s utter failure at the box office has reportedly led to Disney and Lucasfilm putting future standalone Star Wars movies on hold. We also get into a fascinating segment about Gotti, which includes everything from a marketing campaign targeted at film critics to some seriously shady number crunching going on at Rotten Tomatoes. You’ll have to hear this one to believe it.

Last, we get into Mini Reviews as usual, but only a few this week. I give my thoughts on Luke Cage Season 2, which just dropped on Netflix, as well as the new romantic comedy Set It Up. And Will finally saw Thoroughbreds, one of my favorites of 2018.

Question for you: Aside from the original, which is your favorite Jurassic Park movie?

Special guest Skyler Shuler of The DCast joins the show this week to discuss Incredibles 2, the 20th Pixar film and sequel to Brad Bird’s original 2004 animated hit, The Incredibles. Well, Brad Bird is back again, and Incredibles 2 is already breaking box office records.

We began the episode with some quick Off-Topics, including news of John Lasseter’s official departure from Pixar and Disney at the end of 2018. If you’re interested in hearing about Bao, the new short film attached to Incredibles 2, you’ll hear our thoughts on that as well. We covered too many mini reviews to list out, but the main ones are probably Tag, Cloak & DaggerHearts Beat Loud, and Hotel Artemis.

Question for you: Is Incredibles 2 better than the original?

This week, we decided to look back on the series of films that has led up to this past week’s release of Ocean’s 8. We start all the way back in 1960 with The Rat Pack, make our way through Steven Soderbergh’s trilogy, and finally arrive at the newest installment. Afterwards, we take some time to read some of YOUR feedback (we’re sorry it took this long), which will be concluded in next week’s episode. Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia!

This week, we handed the podcast over to an all-female cast of awesome film lovers to review Hereditary and Ocean’s 8. Kimber Myers hosts this week with special guest Alisha Grauso and newcomer to the pod Candice Frederick, and they kick things off with a lively conversation about the year’s breakout horror hit from A24, plus the spinoff to the Ocean’s 11 franchise starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and many more.

For mini reviews, Kimber and Alisha discuss Upgrade, the sci-fi action darling we did our for our feature review last week, and then Won’t You Be My Neighbor, the Fred Rogers documentary that has been warming the hearts of even the coldest critics.

Question for you: what’s the scariest movie you’ve seen in recent years?

Best Robots From Movies (Anyway, That’s All I Got)

It’s much more laid-back on ATAIG this week, because we decided to talk about some of our favorite (and possibly least favorite) ROBOTS from movies, in celebration of last week’s low-budget sci-fi thriller Upgrade (not technically a robot, but we thought it was close enough). Listen as the ATAIG crew discuss some of the most well-written, interesting, bizarre, or ridiculous mechanical beings to grace motion pictures (which is a fancy way of saying that Sam totally nerds out while Anthony and Jason calmly discuss some sci-fi movies). Enjoy!

Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia!

Question for you: Who are some of your favorite Robots (Robits?) from movies? The more obscure the better! Also, what Robot would you want as your personal sidekick?
