    The Woman King – Why It Rules

    The Woman King – Why It Rules

    Ain't nothin' in the rulebook says a woman can't be king. That's right, this week we're discussing The Woman King, the latest film from Gina Prince-Bythewood, director of Love and Basketball and The Old Guard. Her latest is an action war epic released through Sony and starring Viola Davis as the seasoned leader of an all-female warrior unit protecting the West African kingdom of Dahomey in 1820. Lashana Lynch plays one of her most gifted fighters, along with Thuso Mbedu as the troublesome upstart who just started her training and John Boyega as their contemplative king. We kick off the show with a brief discussion of Clerks III, and we have to apologize for some audio issues that came up during the recording that we couldn't fully fix.

    Disney's Pinocchio (2022) – Boy Story

    Disney's Pinocchio (2022) – Boy Story

    We're getting three Pinocchio movies this year for some reason, so this week on the show we're talking about the one from Robert Zemeckis. Now streaming on Disney+, Pinocchio is a live-action remake of the 1940 classic that gave the mouse house its theme song. But can we see the corporate strings on this, ahem, wooden straight-to-streaming rehash starring Tom Hanks, Cynthia Erivo, and Luke Evans, featuring the voice talents of Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Keegan-Michael Key? Anyway, #JusticeforFigaro.

    Barbarian – Zach Cregger's Twisted Bottle Flick

    Barbarian – Zach Cregger's Twisted Bottle Flick

    Special guest Ryan Oliver joins the show this week for a bonus review of Barbarian, the newest film from Zach Cregger of Whitest Kids U Know Fame and of course, like we all remember in detail, Miss March. The horror film stars Georgina Campbell, Bill SkarsgÄrd and Justin Long, and many critics are considering it this year's Malignant. Is that an accurate assessment? Hell if I know, since I wasn't on this recording and haven't seen the movie. But I'm sure Will Ashton and Ryan Oliver have a wonderful conversation about how I was too scared to watch Barbarian, which is now playing in theaters through 20th Century Studios.

    Funny Pages – Is Owen Kline Drawing from His Own Life?

    Funny Pages – Is Owen Kline Drawing from His Own Life?

    The dream of the 90s (or early 2000s?) is dead in Funny Pages. That’s right, we’re discussing the feature directorial debut of Owen Kline, son of Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates. Co-produced by the Safdie Brothers, Funny Pages is a grimy dark comedy from A24 starring Daniel Zolghadri (Eighth Grade) as a teenage cartoonist who ditches his boring suburban life to try and make it on his own in the city. We open the show with a quick rundown of how you, the listeners, chose Funny Pages as our review this week over Rings of Power, and we think that’s pretty funny (in a good way).

    Three Thousand Years of Longing – George Miller Djinned up a New Movie

    Three Thousand Years of Longing – George Miller Djinned up a New Movie

    We're here to grant your cinematic wishes. Though based on this week's box office, you wished for a different movie...This week we're covering George Miller's latest film since Mad Max: Fury Road, the "existential adult fairy tale" Three Thousand Years of Longing, which stars Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba. We begin the show with some off-topics, including Jon's more positive take on Bodies Bodies Bodies, plus some chit chat around what we should review next week and what we missed in August. We then kick off our main review with a brief discussion around George Miller's filmography before diving into one of the most unusual mid-size budget movies of 2022. Or just movies in general, really.

    Beast & Bodies Bodies Bodies – 90-minute Thrills and Kills

    Beast & Bodies Bodies Bodies – 90-minute Thrills and Kills

    Special guest Michael Guarnieri joins Cinemaholics to (in Will's words) "replace Jon Negroni while he's still on his honeymoon for some reason, what a clown" (again, Will's words). First up, Idris Elba! He's in a new thriller called Beastfrom Universal and director Baltasar KormĂĄkur, and it's been getting surprisingly solid reviews considering its release schedule, but are the Cinemaholics going wild about it? Next up is Bodies Bodies Bodies from A24, the much-talked-about dark horror comedy from director Halina Reijn starring Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Rachel Sennott, Lee Pace, and yes, amazingly, Pete Davidson. And last, you didn't think we'd miss a chance to talk about the last few episodes of The Rehearsal, did you? You did? OK, sorry, didn't prepare ourselves for that answer. Regardless, we talk about the last few episodes of Nathan Fielder's mind-breaking "who needs a fourth wall?" HBO series, The Rehearsal.

    Show Notes:


    00:00:00 – Beast review
    00:26:00 – Bodies Bodies Bodies review
    00:45:35 – The Rehearsal finale review
