Cinemaholics Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story

solo

Special guest Catrina Dennis joins the podcast this week to help us unpack the latest Star Wars anthology prequel, Solo: A Star Wars Story. It’s a movie with just as much drama taking place outside the context of the movie, with production problems galore and an unfolding narrative surrounding its underperformance at the box office as of opening weekend. But as for the movie itself, we chat at length about whether or not it’s simply “fine” or perhaps a bit better than some are giving it credit.

We only did a few mini reviews, but the first one absolutely makes up for it. Maveryke and I go on a tear about 13 Reasons Why Season 2, now on Netflix. Will talks about the new Adult Swim show he can’t stop watching, Joe Pera Talks With You, and I finish things out with my tribute to New Girl in light of its series finale.

Question for you: What should we review next week? AdriftAction PointUpgrade, or something else?

Cinemaholics: The Fate of the Furious, Free Fire, Sandy Wexler, 13 Reasons Why

This week, the Cinemaholics become, as Vin Diesel would put it, faaammmmillllyyyy. By reviewing The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment of the little cars franchise that could. I’m joined this week by Will Ashton (CutPrintFilmWe Got This Covered) and Maveryke Hines (our producer) for a fast talk about the franchise at large, how we rank the movies, and of course, a featured review for the new film.

Later, we tackle plenty of other big releases. Free Fire from A24 and starring Brie Larson gets a mini review, along with The Discovery, a Netflix original starring Jason Segal, Rooney Mara, and Robert Redford. We spend a lot of time debating Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie, Sandy Wexler, which divided the Cinemaholics quite fiercely. And we also dive a bit into the first half of the first season of 13 Reasons Why, a new Netflix series starring Dylan Minnette (a name we all get wrong during the show).

13 Reasons Why Bridget Hates Maria – Now Conspiring

podcast (1)

It’s just us girls this week — Maria and Bridget — talking about personal stuff; and by ”talking” I mean Maria asking questions and Bridget hating Maria for it. And by ”personal stuff” I mean questions about our favorite movies and what they mean to us.

After making Bridget uncomfortable, we move on to talk in depth about the latest Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and how it represents suicide, teenage depression and bullying.

Then, during the Comment on your Comments section, we have a sequel to our previous Science throwdown, although this time it is less intense and more amicable.

Question of the Week: What Netflix shows or movies do you recommend?

Ghosts, Trailers, And Titans – Now Conspiring

now conspiring

When we can’t decide what to talk about, we end up talking about everything. In this week’s episode we are joined by the lovely Jenny Pan to talk about the latest movie trailers and to question the violence rate in Pulp Fiction (Sam doesn’t think it’s that violent. Shocker).

We also review the latest Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why, and the new live action manga adaptation, Ghost in the Shell. But it doesn’t stop there. Jenny expresses some delayed frustrations about the live action Beauty and the Beast and it snowballs into a full on rant.

Then, during the Comment on your Comments section, Bridget tells it like it is when a commenter defies her knowledge of physics. It is quite a special segment.

Question of the Week: Should Bridget have a Science Corner segment in the podcast?
