Chatty movie reviews brought to you by queer SoCal pals with inescapable Ohio roots: writer Jason LeRoy (lifelong devotee, Lilith Fair) and producer Rebecca Olarte (lifetime subscriber, Cat Fancy).
The Best and Worst of 2022
Rebecca and Jason are ready to surprise each other with their top and bottom five movies of 2022. Will they have any overlap? Will it come to blows? Will M3GAN preemptively claim top honors for 2023? Only one way to find out!
The Good Nurse | Bodies Bodies Bodies | Emily the Criminal
Guys, it finally happened: Rebecca and Jason recorded together IN PERSON for the first time in nearly three years! Did it become a cautionary tale about our Covid-weakened immune systems? Irrelevant! The important thing is that they sat together in Jason’s LA living room and discussed Tobias Lindholm’s THE GOOD NURSE (which they’d just watched together!), Halina Reijn’s BODIES BODIES BODIES, and John Patton Ford’s EMILY THE CRIMINAL. Enjoy their in-person chemistry because this might be the last time!
Bros | Blonde | Hocus Pocus 2 | Catherine Called Birdy
For our first episode of 2022 prestige movie season, we break down Nicholas Stoller’s BROS, Andrew Dominik’s BLONDE, Anne Fletcher’s HOCUS POCUS 2, and Lena Dunham’s CATHERINE CALLED BIRDY.
Prey | They/Them | Sharp Stick | I Love My Dad | Official Competition
We’re on a roll with a new all-or-nothing episode! This week, we review Dan Trachtenberg’s PREY, John Logan’s THEY/THEM, Lena Dunham’s SHARP STICK, James Morosini’s I LOVE MY DAD, and Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat’s OFFICIAL SELECTION.

Our comeback train continues running right on schedule! On this episode, we review the Russo Brothers’ THE GRAY MAN, Billy Porter’s ANYTHING’S POSSIBLE, Audrey Diwan’s HAPPENING, and Peter Strickland’s FLUX GOURMET—and agree on all except one!

The Binge is a binge plus!!!
LOVE the Binge podcast. Rebecca and Jason are hilarious, yet super down to earth. I am ALWAYS entertained and anxiously look forward to the each episode! LOVE them. Love the podcast!!
Once a month is too infrequent, I wish they’d do every 2 weeks.
Insightful and entertaining!
Great dynamic between these well-likeable hosts! Binge on The Binge for those spot-on reviews.
