Cinemaholics Podcast: Our Top 10 Movies of 2017

2017

2017 is over, but we’re just getting started. I’m not usually the biggest fan of conversations over general rankings (my yearly power rankings aside), but I do find them most useful years later, when I’m trying to remember what I thought of the filmgoing landscape with some perspective. That’s why I do rankings, period, and it’s triple effective when I get to hear Top 10s from my Cinemaholics cohosts.

Our lists do feature some expected overlap, including a clear Cinemaholics “winner,” if you want to call it that. Turns out Brigsby Bear had the most collective impact on me, Will Ashton, and Maveryke Hines, and hopefully some of you awesome listeners.

Enjoy the episode, and if you just can’t wait, here are our Top 10 lists written out below.

Part-Time Characters: Star Wars The Last Jedi (Spoiler Discussion)

Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi

The One Where We Are All Angry #NotMyLuke

Star Wars Episode VII came out in theaters a week ago and Part-Time Characters is finally ready to talk about The Last Jedi with all of the spoilers and rage. Accompanied by our guest, Jerry Rodriguez, we let the hate flow through us as we discuss the out of place humor, the new character pairings and ‘the twist’ that people either love or hate.

Be warned. We talk about every little detail of this movie. There will be all the spoilers. If you haven’t seen this movie yet and don’t want it spoiled for you, maybe come back in a week and have a listen.

Cinemaholics Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the only film we talked about on this week’s podcast, and boy did we talk for a while. Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines joined me for a three-pronged discussion.

First, we shared our thoughts on the entire Star Wars filmography so far in order to give an overall impression of where we’re at with these movies going into The Last Jedi. Next, our spoiler-free review of the film. Finally, we dove into a full spoiler discussion, so keep an ear out for our spoiler warning and transition music.

Because we recorded this episode on Friday, some of the negative backlash to the film had already come to light, giving us a chance to address some of it throughout our review. Agree? Disagree? Sound off in the comments.

Cinemaholics: Winter Movie Preview 2017-2018

winter movie preview

On the show this week, I sit with Will Ashton and Maveryke Hines to discuss our most anticipated films of the Winter season. We each picked three specific films to highlight, listed out a few honorable mentions, and agreed to “share” our excitement for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which we’ll be able to review in full next week.

We also got a chance to briefly discuss some movies we’ve seen over the last week, though we didn’t have enough time for Mini Reviews. I brought up what’s become one of my favorite films of the entire year, Bad Genius, which is available for rental on VOD. I heartily recommend it, along with The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro’s new film hitting a wider release this month.
