Enola Holmes, Kajillionaire, Secret Society of Second Born Royals
As always, we don't have a clue what to review this week. But we'll start with Enola Holmes, a new YA Netflix film starring Millie Bobby Brown as the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes, played by Henry Cavill. We also discuss Miranda July's latest indie favorite, Kajillionaire, which stars Evan Rachel Wood, Gina Rodriguez, Richard Jenkins, and Debra Winger. Last, there's a new Disney+ movie made with the Disney Channel called Secret Society of Second Born Royalsand, um, yikes.
Come and See (1985), Back to the Future (1985)
Things are getting real heavy this week, because Adonis Gonzalez is here to talk about the two best movies of 1985, which happen to be radically different from one another! We start with a harrowing exploration of Elem Klimov's Come and See, an anti-war film depicting the Nazi invasion of Belorussia through the eyes of a young boy. We discuss the history of the film's reputation, the drama associated with the production, the way that it emerges as (potentially) the only War movie that actually matters, and why we find it so difficult to even recommend. After that, we were happy to cleanse our palate with a discussion on Robert Zemeckis's iconic Sci-Fi Family Comedy Back to the Future, covering its deft narrative construction, effective antagonist, and curious soundtrack decisions, as well as a deserved commendation for the recently deceased Ron Cobb.
TIFF 2020 Recap
This year's Toronto International Film Festival has just ended, but we're just getting started covering and even rediscovering the best and worst of this virtual event. From awards favorites like Nomadland and One Night in Miami to noteworthy standouts like Wolfwalkers and City Hall, we discuss up to 33 films you'll likely hear even more about as we move into the winter film season.
The Devil All The Time, The Nest, Antebellum, The Way I See It
On this week's episode, we're hitchhiking all the way to West Virginia and Ohio for the latest Netflix original film, The Devil All The Time starring Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson. We also discuss The Nest starring Jude Law and Carrie Coon, Antebellum starring Janelle Monáe, and The Way I See It, a new documentary about the Obama administration from the perspective of his official White House photographer.
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
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.
