    The Night of the Hunter (1955), AirPlane! (1980)

    The Night of the Hunter (1955), AirPlane! (1980)

    Sam Noland is back on Extra Milestone after a week's respite to take on, along with friend and coworker Robert Wilkinson, two radically different classics. First up is Charles Laughton's gothic thriller The Night of the Hunter, which stars Robert Mitchum as a psychopathic priest hunting down two children during the Great Depression. Next up on our itinerary is the landmark spoof comedy Airplane!, the laugh-a-minute lampooning of pop cinema celebrating 40 years of making the world howl with laughter.

    Unpregnant, The Social Dilemma, Cuties, #Alive, All In: The Fight For Democracy

    Unpregnant, The Social Dilemma, Cuties, #Alive, All In: The Fight For Democracy

    The Cinemaholics are going on a road trip! Metaphorically, at least. Our first pit stop this week is an in-depth review of Unpregnant, a buddy road trip comedy streaming exclusively on HBO Max. Next, we travel all the way to the internet for The Social Dilemma, a new Netflix documentary about social media. After that, we head to France to discuss yet another Netflix film, Cuties, which has been caught in a maelstrom of controversy. Then we go on a detour out east for #Alive, a new South Korean zombie movie on (you guessed it) Netflix! Last, we head on home for an American documentary on Prime Video called All In: The Fight For Democracy.

    The Apartment (1960)

    The Apartment (1960)

    Hey there, buddy-boys and buddy-gals! This week, we might just have the key to your next favorite movie, The Apartment, which recently celebrated 60 years since its initial release. Widely considered to be one of Billy Wilder’s true masterpieces, this romantic dramedy stars Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, and Fred McMurray. We discuss the film’s impact on our own movie-going lives, play some of our favorite clips, and have a spirited debate about this either being a “Christmas movie” or a “New Year’s” movie.

    Jaws (1975), The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

    Jaws (1975), The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

    This week's Extra Milestone is so iconic that we may just need a bigger boat. Anthony Battaglia reunites with Sam to discuss two immensely significant blockbusters that have irreparably shaped the cinematic landscape. We start with a discussion on Steven Spielberg's Jaws, including our differing experiences with the movie, our appreciation for the writing and acting, differences from Peter Benchley's novel, a confession as to our shared fear of open water, and even an extremely hot take involving the infamous sequels! After we dry off from that conversation, we take an isolated look at Irvin Kershner's The Empire Strikes Back and how it changed Star Wars (and sequels in general) forever, why it maintains its effectiveness after dozens of viewings, why we can never view the Dagobah sequence the same way again, whether or not it contains the best lightsaber battle ever, and the dichotomy between good and evil that was solidified in this film.
