Don't know what to watch? Join Jon Negroni, Will Ashton, and Abby Olcese for no-nonsense conversations about the latest films coming to theaters and streaming online. We may not always agree, but one thing's for sure. We're all Cinemaholics.
Phyllida Lloyd, director of Mamma Mia! and The Iron Lady, returns to the big screen with Herself, a new uplifting drama starring and co-written by Clare Dunne. The film had a warm reception at Sundance last January and is now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
The first "major" COVID movie is here! And it's a romantic comedy...heist movie? Sort of? Join us as we parse through the insanity that is Locked Down, which just released on HBO Max. It was directed by Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) and written by Steven Knight (Locke). The film stars Anne Hathaway, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and a star-studded cast of Zoom call cameos we probably shouldn't give away here.
One Night in Miami
One afternoon on a Sunday, the Cinemaholics got together to review Regina King’s debut feature film, One Night in Miami, which stars Kingsley Ben-Adir, Leslie Odom Jr, Eli Goree, and Aldis Hodge. Also in this episode, you’ll hear some mini reviews for “WandaVision,” The Ultimate Playlist of Noise, and more. And some extended discussion over Locked Down and Herself.
Top 10 Films of 2020
OK, “reel” talk. 2020 was…interesting. It was definitely the most unique year of film in the last century of moviegoing. But throughout all the weirdness, we here at Cinemaholics found ourselves captivated by no small number of great projects from veteran filmmakers, first-time directors, and plenty of independent voices. In our annual “best of the year” show, we each discuss our general thoughts on 2020, our honorable mentions, and of course, our respective Top 10 choices. Plus, we share voicemails from some of you listeners discussing your favorite films of 2020.
Pieces of a Woman, Sylvie's Love, The Midnight Sky
We’re celebrating the new year with some tonally different new movies this week. First up is Pieces of a Woman, a new melodrama hitting Netflix this week, which stars Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf. Then we get into Sylvie’s Love, a new throwback romance on Amazon Prime starring Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha. Finally, Will and Abby discuss The Midnight Sky on Netflix, directed by George Clooney, who also stars in the film alongside Felicity Jones. We also cover a few mini reviews in Off-Topics, which include “Cobra Kai”Season 3, We Can Be Heroes, Shadow in the Cloud, and News of the World.
Brazil (1985), Edward Scissorhands (1990)
To officially conclude this year's Extra Milestone lineup, Jon Negroni and Will Ashton of the Cinemaholics podcast joined forces with me one last time to discuss two distinct (and oddly holiday-centric) auteur-driven classics. We start our conversation by digging through the muck of Terry Gilliam's Brazil, a bureaucratic odyssey of madness often regarded as one of the greatest films of all time. After that, we jump forward to Edward Scissorhands, an intensely personal story from Tim Burton that is both lighthearted and melancholy, and which has affected us all at one point or another.

Absolutely brilliant talks, I love these guys
Will Ashton is a riot!
What a rewarding feed to be subscribed to! The banter between all of the hosts and guests is top-tier, and I love the way every episode is broken down via timestamps in the description so that I can skip the parts I'm not interested in, although I can't say I've ever been tempted. Can really tell that a lot of hard work goes into these. The show is insightful, funny, thought-provoking, and just great fun to listen to all around. Would recommend!
The production on this show is through the roof! Great hosts and great content! Totally one of my new pod suggestions!
