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.
I went on vacation recently and have been slow to posting, so apologies on the wait. Here are the latest two episodes of Cinemaholics, which we did manage to record while I was out of town (apologies for not-as-good audio for Halloween in particular).
First up above is our Halloween episode, where Will Ashton and I debated the latest sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic. Next up, Will and I had a thoughtful discussion about Mid90s, the new A24 film directed and written by Jonah Hill. Other films and shows we talked about include The Hate U Give, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Johnny English Strikes Again, Beautiful Boy, “Red Dead Redemption 2,” and plenty more.
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.
For our second episode, we’re following up last week’s “best remakes” by discussing the other side of remakes: The Bad Side. We take a little time at the beginning to get to know the hosts a bit more, and then we get into our lists, highlighting the worst remakes of all time. Needless to say, we had some stuff to get off our chests.
We’d love to hear what some of your least favorite remakes are, or what we might have missed, and we’d also love to see your ‘Cinemaholic Bios.’ Comment below and let us know!
This was a blast and a half. On our latest episode of Pixar Live, you guys helped Kayla Savage and me come up with the ultimate Pixar halloween costume. And we’re totally going to do next week’s show dressed as these characters (the winner got an awesome Incredibles shirt, of course).
We broadcast this show on Facebook Live via Super News every Wednesday at 7pm Pacific. And if you tune in and leave an awesome comment, you might win something cool related to Pixar!
The contest is over, but what do you think the ultimate Pixar costume is? We got some great ideas for both Disney and Pixar (a lot of people suggested Nightmare before Christmas). The best suggestions were pretty creative and off the beaten path, so if you have something awesome to contribute, we want to hear it.
Also, Kayla and I are open to your ideas and questions for future episodes. It’s a live show, so audience engagement is always the goal. What do you want to hear us talk about, and are there any Pixar universe secrets you’re dying to hear from us? This is your chance to let us know.
That said, enjoy this week’s show!
This week on the podcast, we review Burnt, starring Bradley Cooper, and get our feet wet with some movie news. We also unpack some “fun-sized” questions and debate some hallmarks of cinema, such as: is 3D better than 2D?
As always, we read your feedback from last week’s show, deliver our Netflix recommendation of the week, and finish the episode with new movie releases coming to a theater near you.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Which Halloween costumes do you think need to stop?
Now this is a list I can get behind.
