Cinema Clash Podcast: The Little Things, Supernova, Palmer, Apollo11 Quarantine

I recently reviewed Supernova, which is an understated film elevated by its two stars, Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth. I also watched a few other movies out this week including The Little Things, which sadly could not be elevated by the presence of a trio of Oscar-winning actors (Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto). And then there was Palmer, an Apple TV+ original movie that was satisfying to watch even if totally formulaic, thanks to the sweet dynamic between Justin Timberlake and his young co-star Ryder Allen. Find out more about these films, as well as what my co-host Charlie Juhl had to say about The Dig on Netflix and the foreign film Dear Comrades!, and my quick watch of a short documentary with leftover footage from Apollo 11… on this edition of The Cinema Clash podcast!

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!

Need a break from reading? Take a listen to the Cinema Clash podcast to hear me (Mainstream Chick) debate and discuss a slew of flicks including Antebellum, Blackbird, The Way I See It; and the Aussie feel-good flick, H is for Happiness. Plus, a shout-out to my latest guilty-pleasure binge watch, “Cobra Kai” on Netflix. And hear my cinema nemesis Charlie give his take on a few things I did not have a chance to watch – The Devil All the Time, I’ve Got Issues, and The Long Way Up. Check it out.

Cinema Clash podcast: Kong Skull Island; The Ottoman Lieutenant; The Last Word; Neruda; The Marseilles Trilogy

On this edition of the Cinema Clash with Charlie and Hannah: An epic monster movie that’s thin on story but big on spectacle; a love triangle wrapped in a weak war drama set in the Ottoman Empire; Shirley MacLaine gets the The Last Word in a film that Charlie detests and Hannah struggles to defend; a Chilean poet-turned-politician gets the fictionalized biopic treatment; and not one, not two, but three French films for the cinephilic Francophile (aka Charlie). Ooh-la-la! Listen now, or download for later!

CinemaClash Podcast: Batman v Superman; My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2; Marguerite; Eye in the Sky

I recorded the latest CinemaClash podcast with Charlie Juhl before I had a chance to actually see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but I knew it would crush the competition at the box office, and it did. Fortunately, I think the expectations and insights shared during the podcast turned out to be right on target. I didn’t love it. I didn’t hate it. I wasn’t going to skip it. Ben Affleck (Batman/Bruce Wayne) and Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent) wore their suits sufficiently well, given what they were tasked with in setting up the whole ‘Justice League’ franchise. Batman v Superman throws a lot at you in 2 1/2 hours, and you really need to have seen Man of Steel and the Dark Knight movies to successfully process all the backstory, future plot points, super-heroes, and super-villains. If you’re a newbie to the genre, don’t expect to like this movie. It’ll seem like a hot mess. Anyway, check out the podcast for more (spoiler-free) debate about B v S, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, a French indie called Marguerite that foreign film and opera buffs may want to check out, and a timely, compelling film about drone warfare that stars Helen Mirren, Eye in the Sky. And more! Take a listen:
