Is Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Really A Masterpiece? — Cinemaholics

dunkirk

Usually on Cinemaholics, we stick to covering one featured movie and leaving the rest for “mini reviews.” But for the second week in a row, the summer release schedule disagreed with us, so Will Ashton, Maveryke Hines, and I reviewed both Dunkirk and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets this week.

This was a more contentious episode than usual, with most of us differing quite a bit on both of these movies, particularly Valerian. If you’re at all interested in seeing either of these films, our conversation might prove useful.

Just two Mini Reviews this week: Aftermath (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Colossal (starring Anne Hathaway). The latter is a film I saw just this week as a blind buy on Will Ashton’s recommendation.

This week on the podcast, we review The Martian and chat about our favorite Matt Damon movies. Of course, longtime fans of the show know that I irrationally dislike Damon as an actor, so this was a fun conversation.

As always, we talk about the latest entertainment news and make fun of Adonis while listening to Kayla talk about how cool Pixar’s next film, Coco, looks.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What is your favorite space movie about space? Or in space at least…

Which Movie Is The Most ‘Rewatchable?’

For the first time in the history of Now Conspiring, we completely botched the recording of an episode. The original episode featured me, Kayla, Maria, and Adonis making podcast gold talking about movies that are the most rewatchable, but one corrupted audio file later, I was forced to rerecord the episode by myself.

This is a weird, but thankfully short episode that I don’t encourage anyone to actually listen to. Seriously, don’t press play. Stop. OK, fine you can listen, but I warned you.

Sure, this episode didn’t end with a catchy tune called “Unbreakable Sansa Schmidt,” but it did manage to annoy legions of faithful ASOIAF fans nonetheless. So what’s our verdict on this controversial episode?

As usual, I’m joined by Maria Garcia and Adonis Gonzalez of House Conspiring, as we podcast our way to some answers in this week’s episode of HBO’S Game of Thrones. If you haven’t seen the most recent episode of this show, then please avoid this podcast episode at all costs.
