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.
With the recent release of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, we here at ATAIG thought it would be the perfect opportunity to trace the lineage of the series—from 1996 to 2018—and try to figure out how and why this franchise has managed to keep going strong. We talk about the ones that worked (five of them), the one that didn’t quite work, all of the crazy stunts, and all of the insanely complicated storylines over the years. We also have an important announcement at the beginning, so make sure you don’t miss that, and enjoy!
Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia!

Tom Cruise is back for another mission, this time in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, once again directed by Christopher McQuarrie. I’m joined by my regular cohosts this week to review the film, Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines (who is back from his time off the show). It’s a packed episode with plenty to get into, so let’s get started.
Please send us your questions. We’re planning on doing our first Q&A episode, so ask us anything. We’ll be devoting a full episode to answering your questions, whether they be personal, professional, or downright absurd. Can’t wait to read what all of you come up with.
The next few months promise a lot of big and small delights at the theater, so we decided to preview 2018 summer movies on Cinemaholics, noting our most anticipated films from May through August. From Incredibles 2 to Deadpool 2, there are plenty of blockbusters to get excited about, but to be honest, a lot of our picks happen to be smaller flicks this year that we seriously can’t wait to see.
Special guest Sam Noland joined us to help unpack the summer, and we started with some listener emails and light discussion about how our letter grade system “works” and where we stand on theater experiences versus staying at home to watch a movie. Toward the end of the show, we went through a few Mini Reviews, tackling I Feel Pretty, Super Troopers 2, and The Endless.
Question for you: What are your Top 3 most anticipated summer movies?
