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.
