Cinemantics is a podcast where two friends discuss Film, TV and craft beer each week. There's the Cinemantics Official Rating Scale. Tony's Stupid Lists. And, of course, we use the Untappd app to tell the world how much we love (or hate) each beer. Click the link for more information. Thanks for listening.
(Mini) 218: Riverside Brewing and Mast Brewing Company
In this month's mini episode, Tony & Eddie kick back with two light beers that bring solid flavor. There's no boozy barrel-aged brews here. Just some of the classic styles (ale and stout) with a tiny bit of frills. But is this a bad thing? Tune in to find out.
Episode 218: Stowaway (2021) - Drake's Brewing & Founders Brewing
In episode 218, appropriately named, "Slowaway" by Tony, the boys review the new Netflix original space flick, Stowaway (2021). The premise of this movie is alluring to say the least. On a space missions to Mars, everything has to be planned perfectly. Life support, food, power, materials and supplies. Everything measured. Everything accounted for. So what happens with a stowaway ends up on a space craft? This film attempts to tell us. But is it successful?
The boys also try two new beers selected for them by Patreon supporters. Eddie has a ridiculous barrel aged stout at 17.5% ABV and Tony samples a sweeter, safer milkshake IPA from founders. Stick around until the end of the episode for more details and their Untappd rating.
Episode 217: Godzilla vs Kong (2021) - Northern Brewer & Founders Brewing
In episode 217, Tony & Eddie discuss the new new newest (or whatever) rendition of a large ape fighting a large lizard, aka Godzilla vs Kong (2021). There have been something like 30 of these films (more?) over the years. There was a lot of hype surrounding this one, and some others in this most recent franchise. Going into a film like this, we're expecting big CGI fights, destruction and ... heart? Does this film deliver on more than that? Is there compelling characters and plot lines? Tune in to see if the boys think so.
The boys also had two new beers of course. Tony sampled a beer that Eddie had previously on the show from Founders called, Panther Cub. Eddie brings his newest homebrew to this episode - a Bell's Two Hearted clone.
(Mini) 216: Founders Brewing & Pipeworks Brewing Company
In April's mini episode, Tony & Eddie talk a tiny bit about Escape from Tarkov, but mostly just about work, life and of course booze. Tony brings a Pipeworks Brewing double hopped IPA with oats to the show. (Yes, oats). And Eddie goes against tradition and brings a hard seltzer. It's an odd mini, but what else is new?
Episode 215: Synchronic (2019) - Great Lakes Brewing & Cigar City Brewing
In this month's Patreon Pick's episode, the Cinefantics picked a time travel trip pick starring, Anthony Mackie. Synchronic came out in 2019 and didn't make much of a stir. However, in recent months it's gaining in popularity and being touted as an exciting new take on the sci-fi genre with and interesting twist on time travelling. We all know Tony hates time travel, so the question remains, could he see past his disdain? Tune in this week to find out.
The boys also sampled two new beers selected by Patreon supporters. It was Belgian's all around this month with Eddie's Great lakes Brewing selection and Tony's Cigar City Brewing pick. We also all know that Tony hates Belgian beers. So did this one change his mind?
Episode 214: Zack Synder's Justice League (2020) - Mountains Walking & Pipeworks Brewing
In episode 214, Tony & Eddie spend... over 8 collective hours watching Zach Snyder's Justice League. Lucky for you, the episode is not as long as the film. HUGE praise is forming for this epic attempt at saving the 2017 outing of the original theatrical cut of the film. Did it pay off? Is it worth it? Is the hype well served here?
The boys also had two new beers of course. This week Eddie sampled a new one from Mountains Walking Brewing. A DDH Double IPA with aroma for days did not disappoint. Tony had a Black IPA from a new brewery (for us) called Pipeworks Brewing. Black IPAs are rare in our area so we're always excited to try a new one. Stick around until the end of the episode to see what he thought.
