Cinemaholics Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

soldado

Sam Noland is back on the show again for the first time in a while to help us review Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s surprise 2015 hit. You’ll notice this is an extra-long episode of the show (mainly by accident), and part of the reason is because our Day of the Soldado review might just be our longest one yet that doesn’t include spoilers. We had a fascinating discussion about the movie, coming at it from about as many angles as you can imagine.

We had a lengthy movie news segment as well, which you’ll see in the show notes for the image. Plus an early mini review for Ant-Man & The Wasp that leaves out any and all spoilers.

Cinemaholics: The Fate of the Furious, Free Fire, Sandy Wexler, 13 Reasons Why

This week, the Cinemaholics become, as Vin Diesel would put it, faaammmmillllyyyy. By reviewing The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment of the little cars franchise that could. I’m joined this week by Will Ashton (CutPrintFilmWe Got This Covered) and Maveryke Hines (our producer) for a fast talk about the franchise at large, how we rank the movies, and of course, a featured review for the new film.

Later, we tackle plenty of other big releases. Free Fire from A24 and starring Brie Larson gets a mini review, along with The Discovery, a Netflix original starring Jason Segal, Rooney Mara, and Robert Redford. We spend a lot of time debating Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie, Sandy Wexler, which divided the Cinemaholics quite fiercely. And we also dive a bit into the first half of the first season of 13 Reasons Why, a new Netflix series starring Dylan Minnette (a name we all get wrong during the show).

‘Beauty And The Beast’ Is A Decent Musical Trapped Inside A Dull Remake

There’s no major, heavy-handed flaw that brings down Beauty and the Beast, the latest of Disney’s live-action remakes. Rather, this film falls apart from its own weight of bad decisions, made very carefully to not to mess with one of Disney’s most beloved classics too much for fear of losing the same magic that brought animated films to the prestigious forefront of Hollywood.
