Another year of film is about to pass, so I did something a bit different to mark the occasion. You’ve probably seen a few tributes like the one shown above, but hopefully you’ll find that this one is a bit more thematic than others. Each song choice, scene, and even some edits plays into a larger theme of what 2018 meant to me as a filmgoer. Also, I purposefully chose 162 films to highlight, which obviously includes movies I haven’t even seen yet, as well as films I didn’t even particularly like. But I know many of you watching did, and I want to celebrate the universal appeal of cinema for everyone. Not just me.
On the show this week, we have a wide range of films and shows to cover, starting with Crazy Rich Asians, the crowd-pleasing event of the summer as Will Ashton puts it. Maveryke Hines also joins this week to help us review Disenchantment Season 1 on Netflix, Alpha, Mile 22, and a Netflix gem of a movie called To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
Our Q&A Episode is rapidly approaching. Send us all your movie-related questions and otherwise, either in the comments below or via email: email@example.com.
Our featured review this week is The Meg, a new shark/monster movie starring Jason Statham. Cohosts Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines joined me this week to discuss the film, plus some others including an early sneak peek review of Crazy Rich Asians.
Don’t forget, our Q&A episode is rapidly approaching, and we’re still collecting your burning questions. We’re obviously hoping for film-related inquiries and topics, but feel free to ask whatever’s on your mind!
