Our Guilty Pleasure Movies (Anyway, That’s All I Got)

guilty pleasure

This week, we decided to have a laid-back discussion about our guilty pleasure movies: the movies we kind of like, but don’t want to admit it. It’s a free-flowing conversation, basically, and a chance for us hosts to learn a lot more about each other’s tastes and…weaknesses?

Let us know what you think of this format, and also let us know what some of your guilty pleasure movies are! They can come from anywhere, so we’d love to know what you take (guilty) pleasure in. Also, since everyone has their own definition, what does the phrase ‘guilty pleasure’ mean to you? And finally, what do you want to hear from the show? Are there any topics, franchises, or formats that you would be interested to hear us talk about?

The One Where Adonis is Sick
Quote: What phrasing would you prefer Adonis? ‘I don’t know, making out. Or tonguing.’
TONGUING?!

In our shortest episode to date, Bridget, Adonis and I talk about superhero movies, both Marvel and DC. Adonis does his best to defend Justice League and their CGI over Henry Caville’s moustache and Bridget pretends she is not head over heels for Thor. Neither were very successful.

Cinemaholics Review: Justice League and The Punisher Season 1

Justice

Is Justice League the last comic book movie of 2017? If so, what a bizarre ending to one of the most bizarre years in comic book movie history (at least in recent years). What should have been the biggest comic book movie since, well, The Avengers, has arrived with little-to-no fanfare, but we’re here to judge the movie on its own, removed from any hype it may attempt to earn by merit of its seven icons.

I’m joined this week by my trusty cohosts Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines, but also special guest Craig Hanks from the Legendarium Podcast. You may remember I guested on that show to talk about The Dark Tower back in August, and per the holy podcast networking laws hiding in plain sight, it’s only fair to have Craig on this week to share his thoughts on Justice League, the DCEU, and where this frenetic franchise is headed next.

Aside from Justice League, we talk about The Punisher Season 1, plus some new movies you might be interested in. Pixar’s Coco (full review next week), Last Flag Flying, and Wonder get a few minutes each, and we finished out the show with some banter about new movies to come over the Thanksgiving holiday.  Continue reading Cinemaholics Review: Justice League and The Punisher Season 1

Ghosts, Trailers, And Titans – Now Conspiring

now conspiring

When we can’t decide what to talk about, we end up talking about everything. In this week’s episode we are joined by the lovely Jenny Pan to talk about the latest movie trailers and to question the violence rate in Pulp Fiction (Sam doesn’t think it’s that violent. Shocker).

We also review the latest Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why, and the new live action manga adaptation, Ghost in the Shell. But it doesn’t stop there. Jenny expresses some delayed frustrations about the live action Beauty and the Beast and it snowballs into a full on rant.

Then, during the Comment on your Comments section, Bridget tells it like it is when a commenter defies her knowledge of physics. It is quite a special segment.

Question of the Week: Should Bridget have a Science Corner segment in the podcast?

Power Rangers and Life Review – Cinemaholics

This week on Cinemaholics, I’m joined by Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to review Power RangersLife, and Season 2 of Love. But we begin with a quick look at the new Justice League trailer and debate the merits of the DCEU, going all the way back to Green Lantern at one point.

Be sure to email us your amazing feedback, so we can discuss on next week’s show: cinemaholicspodcast(@)gmail.com. And if you like our show, please consider leaving us a review on iTunes. You can also download episodes on just about any device here.

‘The Lego Batman Movie’ Has More Jokes Than It Does Laughs

If Deadpool could parody the entire superhero genre, why not create a Batman movie that parodies the massive, long-running Batman mythology? It’s a smart, timely idea to build a monument to the decades of trivia regarding one of the most iconic superheroes (and characters) of all time, and as a followup to the hilarious and self-aware Lego Movie, which is ultimately a more thoughtful attempt to woo both kids and audiences.

To Infinity and Star Trek Beyond

This week on Now Conspiring, we review two movies for the price of infinity. Star Trek Beyond and Sing Street are discussed, along with the new Comic-Con trailers coming out for Justice League and Wonder Woman.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK (and you’re required to answer this): Which upcoming DC live-action movie will be the best?
