First Man Review – Cinemaholics Episode #86

first man

First Man has just landed in theaters, but not to a strong box office. The prestige picture from Oscar-favorite Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy captures the stoic, yet daredevil life of Neil Armstrong from his early days as an X-15 pilot to becoming the first man to walk on the moon. On the latest Cinemaholics, we discuss the film’s contribution to the moon landing legacy and the craft behind turning that fateful Apollo 11 mission into something truly traumatic and realistic, perfect for IMAX.

Next week: We’re watching Halloween and The Hate U Give. Let us know which film you think we should feature review, or if we should do another Double Feature. Plus, let us know which new films or TV shows you want us to mini review in the comments below. You can also become a patron and vote your decision in our weekly Patreon poll.

The Predator Review – Cinemaholics Episode #82

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.

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.
