In an age of box-office busting behemoths and infinite franchise foreshadowing, it can be refreshing to look back on what started them all.

This series, hosted by Byron Wylder and Gabriel Medina Blackman charts the franchises that define our cinematic landscape, and searches for answers to the questions: Why has this lasted? Why do they keep making them? And why do we keep on going to see them?

We've done franchises such as Star Wars, the terminator, and even Classics like The Godfather triology.

    Dunkirk - Ten to Tenet

    Dunkirk - Ten to Tenet

    Our Cinematic Universe is proud to introduce our new mini-series on the films of Christopher Nolan. In anticipation of the release of his eleventh film Tenet, we are going through every piece of his filmography.

    But it wouldn't be a Chris Nolan series without some time-bending nonsense, so enjoy our first episode in the series... Dunkirk, the last film from Nolan. 

    While Byron adores this film, Gabe finds it sorely lacking in some of the fundamentals of storytelling. Enjoy the discussion on Dunkirk!

    The Godfather Part 2 - Our Cinematic Universe

    We're back! After some delays for personal projects and COVID related difficulties, we are back on a weekly schedule of sharing episodes on Our Cinematic Universe.
    We're excited to share our thoughts on The Godfather Part 2, bringing us to the midway mark of this mini-series. Will this film beat Part 1 in terms of scope and size, and pale to the drama and story of the first?

    Let us re-examine this incredible film decades later, and most importantly... whose gonna take the cannoli? Enjoy, stay safe!

    While the Cinema's are closed, we take a look at a classic franchise The Godfather.

    Our first film is the 1972 classic, The Godfather, directed by the legendary director, Francis Ford Coppola. We take a look at this film from two different points of view, while Byron has seen this film many, many times, Gabe has only seen it a handful of times. So, why is this considered one of the best films of all time?

    This episode is part 2 of 2 our podcast about the original Godfather.

    Terminator Genisys - A Broken Timeline

    Terminator Genisys - A Broken Timeline

    Our Cinematic Universe has a new objective: to analyse the Terminator Timeline. How a relatively simple story changed into one of the most convoluted franchises.

    Here we are at the end... or the beginning? As Skydance acquires the rights, there is hope for a new creativity to come into the franchise... the only question is, did they pull it of.... NO! Of course they didn't, you've seen it (or haven't), you know it's bad. But just how bad is it....?
