With so many films coming out right now, Will Ashton and I decided to do a “mini review marathon” in lieu of a normal episode of the show. In addition to our discussions on Mowgli, Roma, Creed II, and The Favourite, we also review Vox Lux, Shrek Retold, Anna and the Apocalypse, and more.
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.
We have an exciting film season ahead of us, so as voted by the listeners, here’s our full preview of what you should be watching this fall. From Damien Chazelle’s Neil Armstrong biopic and Barry Jenkins’s adaptation of the classic James Baldwin novel, to the horror remake antics of Halloween and Suspiria, there’s something for just about everyone to enjoy over the next three months.
