Is Baby Driver Really All That Good? – Cinemaholics

Over July 4th weekend, I got together with the rest of the Cinemaholics crew to chat about Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver at length. For those of you who’ve already read my review, it should come as no surprise that I adored the film. But as always, Will and Maveryke provided some nuance of their own to whether or not this film is as good as the critics are saying.

We started off the show with a spirited discussion about Edgar Wright’s filmography and which ones are our favorites. And of course we spared some time later in the show to talk about some other big movies you might want to check out. We covered Despicable Me 3 and Okja, mainly, while also touching on my (finally) viewing of Captain Underpants and Maveryke’s current obsession with Bojack Horseman.

What Is Even Going On In ‘Transformers: The Last Knight?’— Cinemaholics

Full disclosure: I was very tired during this latest episode of Cinemaholics, and you can clearly hear it in my voice. For fun, simply imagine that it’s my disdain for Transformers: The Last Knight fueling my weariness and it should sound just fine.

Maveryke and I are joined this week by CJ Mellon from That Kind of Nerd podcast. You may remember CJ from his guest appearance on Now Conspiring last fall, when we discussed the best and worst movies of 2016 (or maybe just the summer?) Unfortunately, Will Ashton is out this week due to scheduling conflicts.

Fortunately, our Mini Reviews were a bit more lighthearted than our featured discussion of Transformers. We talked about GLOW, the new show on Netflix starring Alison Brie, which is about the “gorgeous ladies of wrestling” in the 1980s. Highly recommend now that I’ve seen a few episodes myself. CJ shares his love of iZombie and speaks briefly on Season 3 without spoiling anything. And I gave a sneak peak review of Friends from College, another new Netflix show premiering on July 14th. I’m still working my way through the season, but it’s a solid recommendation.

There are just three things we want you listeners to do if you have a spare moment this week, and it will greatly benefit Cinemaholics:

  1. Email us! We truly enjoy your feedback through the cinemaholicspodcast(at)gmail.com email. It also helps guide our early segments and ease into conversation. So please keep your great emails coming.
  2. Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts. Yes, yes, I know it’s a hassle, but doing this ensures that our podcast stays afloat as we pay our bills and bring on new guests. For those of you who’ve already done this, thanks again for taking the time.
  3. Join our Facebook community. We’re steadily growing and finding new ways to talk to you all, and it’s great to find listeners from YouTube and podcasts mingling in the same group. Thanks again for all of you who’ve liked the page already.

No Cinemahomework this week, but stay tuned for some bonus content in the next few days surrounding some big news stories we didn’t have time to get to in the main episode. See you all next week.

Is ‘Cars 3’ The Best ‘Cars’ Movie? — Cinemaholics

I’ve spent the last seven days or so talking about Cars 3Cars, and Pixar in general, but my recent sit-down with Will Ashton and Kayla Savage on Cinemaholics was a true highlight. We reviewed Cars 3, of course, but we also spent a considerable amount of time discussing the Cars franchise as a whole and why it’s Pixar’s most controversial brand.

We also shared our thoughts on two big movies that released this week: 47 Meters Down and Rough Night. Will Ashton saw the former and Kayla Savage and I saw the latter. Hopefully, you’ll appreciate our newly titled segment at the beginning of the episode, “But Our Emails,” where we took a few minutes to read your messages over the last few weeks.

The Mummy Comes At Night — Cinemaholics

I’m still working on putting the mental pieces of my brain back together after sitting through The Mummy, and strangely enough, I’m almost as equally confused about It Comes At Night, A24’s would-be horror classic beloved by critics and ravaged by just about everyone else. Luckily, I had plenty of help on the show this week to navigate these new films and then some.

We finally managed to lasso in Andy Herndon from The D-Cast for the “Mummy” segment of this week’s episode. True, we brought him in for something completely removed from Disney (which he of course pointed out with sharp irony), but as expected, we had a great conversation and will have him back again soon.

Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Reviews — Cinemaholics

This week on Cinemaholics, I’m joined by special guest Kayleigh Donaldso, writer for ScreenRant and Pajiba. We talked about Wonder Woman, of course, and had a spirited discussion about the state of the DCEU and how we’d rank the movies so far.

Will Ashton was on the show as well to talk about Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, which I unfortunately had to miss this weekend. But I did get a chance to share my thoughts on the first season of Riverdale (finally), and Maveryke Hines tried to convince me to finally catch up on House of Cards now that Season 5 is out.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Review Roundtable – Cinemaholics

We have a special guest on this week’s episode of Cinemaholics, where we review Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. Robert Yaniz Jr., TV editor for We Got This Covered joined the roundtable with me and Soundmaster Maveryke Hines to talk all things Alien. Definitely a great discussion.

Later in the show, we spent some time talking about some big movie news and then did a mini-reviews for The Lovers, the latest movie from A24. We also talked about the latest going on with The FlashGotham, and Sherlock.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Review Roundtable — Cinemaholics

I’m joined this week by film critic Will Ashton and sound master Maveryke Hines to review Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We had a great discussion with a separate segment just for spoilers, but we really want to know what YOU think about the followup to one of Marvel’s most successful movies.

Later in the show, we Cinemaholics dug into some shows and movies we think you might like, including season 1 of The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu, Dean starring Demetri Martin, Handsome on Netflix, and season 1 of Dear White People on Netflix.
