predator

Franchise, franchise, franchise! The Predator aims to be a revival of the late 80s action franchise continued by a direct sequel, two spin-off crossovers, and a previous attempt at reigniting the hunt. Directed and co-written by Shane Black (who appeared in the first Predator), this latest imagining of the alien horrors is an action horror…comedy? On Cinemaholics this week, I discuss how that works with Will Ashton of Cinemablend and Maveryke Hines, our sound producer.

Mini reviews this week include A Simple FavorBojack Horseman Season 5, White Boy RickThe NunPeppermint, Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4, Iron Fist Season 2, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Season 1, and The Dragon Prince Season 1.

Next week: Should we review The House with a Clock in its Walls or Life Itself? Let us know which you’d prefer in the comments!

We also have a big announcement…

Yesterday on Twitter, Incredibles 2 director Brad Bird teased the release of a new short film that will reveal what took place the night Edna Mode babysat Jack Jack.

Fans of the movie should remember about midway through the film, a weary Mr. Incredible handed Jack Jack off to an unassuming Edna Mode for a night off, only to find both characters in transformed spirits the morning after. So…what happened?

Snarcasm: This WALL-E Theory Makes So Much Sense That It Doesn’t

wall-e theory

Snarcasm is an editorial column I do when I read something so upsetting, I have to publish something snarky and sarcastic about it. Thanks for indulging, and definitely take everything you’re about to read incredibly seriously.

Hi. Fan theories are both the best and the worst. Kind of like people! But you can’t say the same about Pixar’s WALL-E, a triumph of animated cinema about the reckless, capitalist dangers of mankind passively wreaking havoc on the environ—

“Sinister WALL-E fan theory will change the way you watch the sweet Pixar film forever”

Oh, OK. I forgot we were watching this “sweet Pixar film” all wrong. How, exactly, was WALL-E some sort of overtly nice and go-lucky tale, considering all the dystopian apocalyptic subject matter?

Cinemaholics Review: Skyscraper, Eighth Grade, Sorry to Bother You

Special guest Aaron Dicer of SiftPop and CinemaSins joins the show this week to talk about Skyscraper, the latest Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson blockbuster. We also found time to discuss some recent indie releases doing good box office in their own right. There’s the new A24 film Eighth Grade, directed by standup comedian Bo Burnham, and Sorry to Bother You, directed by musician-turned-filmmaker Boots Riley.

Two directorial debuts from two unlikely media personalities. Next week, you can probably expect BILL ACTION’s feature directorial debut.

Question for you: what was your initial reaction after seeing Sorry to Bother You? And if you haven’t seen it, do you plan on checking this one out?
