Cinema Clash Podcast: The Climb, Come Away

I wasn’t blown away by Come Away. But I was somewhat entertained by The Climb. To find out why, tune in to this edition of the Cinema Clash podcast!

Charlie and I hash over the mash-up of two childhood classics (Come Away), find common ground on a wry dramedy about friendship and betrayal (The Climb), and chat about other new releases, his kid’s introduction to ParaNorman, a look ahead to Dune, and the possible return of the Has Fallen franchise.

Cinema Clash Podcast Reviews: Holidate, Come Play, The True Adventures of Wolfboy

Happy Halloween and Pre-Election Day Weekend! On this quaranstream edition of the Cinema Clash, I chat about Holidate, the bawdy holiday romcom now on Netflix, Charlie talks about the horror movie Come Play (which I opted to skip ’cause it’s really not my genre of choice), and we both weigh in on a quirky coming of age indie called The True Adventures of Wolfboy.  Tune in!

Cinema Clash Podcast: Pandemic Edition 2

Sometimes it’s easier to talk about a movie than write about it, especially during a pandemic. My motivation to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) takes a hit with every long day at the computer doing ‘day job’ stuff. So in part out of laziness, and in part out of a desire to keep Chickflix fans ‘tuned in’ to what I’ve seen, I’ll periodically share the latest edition of The Cinema Clash podcast that I co-host with Charlie Juhl of CharlieJuhl.com. His tastes in film are generally more aligned with Arty Chick’s than with mine, thus the obvious potential for a ‘clash’ over particular viewing options. After a six-week hiatus, Charlie and I are back on the air with the podcast, and catching up on what we’ve seen in the interim. The podcast is also available on iTunes and other platforms, so feel free to subscribe and binge listen. On this second “Pandemic Edition” of The Cinema Clash, we talk about the teen-focused dramas Never Rarely Sometimes Always, Selah and the Spades, and How to Build a Girl; the British RomCom Love, Wedding, Repeat; the oddly entertaining French black comedy Deerskin; and the Chris Hemsworth action distraction Extraction. Plus, quick takes on The Half of It, Butt Boy, and the documentaries Becoming (which I screwed up the title on during the chat – my bad), Never Surrender, and Spaceship Earth.

CinemaClash Podcast: Zootopia, London Has Fallen, WTF

Check out my latest podcast with Charlie Juhl. This week, Charlie and I clash over Zootopia, London Has Fallen, and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. He thinks my tastes are shallow. I think his are pretentious. Take a listen, and let us know what YOU think!
