Is Pixar in Decline? Cinemaholics Happy Hour w/ T.J. Wolsos

pixar

It’s finally happened. T.J. Wolsos of PixarPost and I have collaborated on a project. Above, you’ll hear our full conversation on all things Pixar, mostly centering around the feeling that the animation studio’s best days are in the past. T.J. and I have a hearty debate and discussion about whether or not this is really true, and if it is, what caused the change (or “evolution” as T.J. aptly points out).

Is Pixar making too many sequels? Did Disney cause all of this? Has Disney animation surpassed Pixar? And what movies are coming next from the Emeryville campus? We answer these questions and tons more, plus we read your tweets and comments to parse out how everyone else feels about the subject. This is one podcast episode you Pixar fans don’t want to miss.

The Predator Review – Cinemaholics Episode #82

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…

I was out of town for this week’s episode of Cinemaholics, but my regular cohost Will Ashton filled in hosting duties to review The Happytime Murders along with special guests Matt Serafini and Chris Sheridan. The trio also did an early sneak peek review of Searching and dove into some film and TV news at the start of the show.

I’l be back this weekend for our full review of Searching, which should be a contentious one. In the meantime, we’re still collecting your questions for our upcoming Q&A episode. Feel free to ask us anything movie-related or otherwise and we’ll add it to the list.
