2018 In Film – Do I Make You Sad? (Tribute)

Another year of film is about to pass, so I did something a bit different to mark the occasion.

Things got heated during our discussion of Bohemian Rhapsody, the new biopic about Freddie Mercury and the band Queen during their rise to fame in the 70s and 80s. Long story short, I enjoyed the film but wished it could have been a masterpiece deserving of Mercury’s legacy.

As you can imagine, though, things loosened up quite a bit as we got into our other reviews, to the point where we were laughing almost too much for me keep the conversation coherent during editing. We hope you enjoy our discussions around SuspiriaThe Nutcracker and the Four RealmsThe Haunting of Hill HouseWildlife, and Boy Erased.

Next week: We need your help deciding which film to do for our featured review. The choices include The Girl in the Spider’s WebDr. Seuss’s The Grinch, and Overlord. You can also become a patron and vote your decision in our weekly Patreon poll.
