CinemAddicts Ep. 62: ‘This Beautiful Fantastic’ ‘Brimstome’ & ‘Raw’

Due to Anderson Cowan’s fatherhood, podcast and Groupers duties, coupled with my manny and blogging schedule, we weren’t able to post a CinemAddicts episode until late Friday! First off – apologies for that – but Anderson is determined to keep the weekly feed going – and this episode’s a good one film-wise. Check out the details below my fellow Cinema-addicts!!!

CinemAddicts Ep. 60: ‘Dying Laughing’ & ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’

 

We’ve got two first rate films this week, which is a marked improvement to last episode’s dismal offering (although Anderson deep pulled the excellent Untamed Heart). Details on the documentary Dying Laughing and the zombie apocalypse thriller The Girl With All The Gifts below!

CinemAddicts Ep. 59: ‘A Cure For Wellness’ ‘XX’ And Oscar Shorts

 

This was both a disappointing and awesome episode of CinemAddicts for me. The sadness comes from my sheer disappointment of A Cure For Wellness and XX. Anderson’s pick of Untamed Heart, as well as his evisceration of a short I adore made this episode worth its weight in gold (or in our case, pennies). Details below!!!

CinemAddicts Ep. 55: ‘They Call Us Monsters’ ‘Detour’ ‘My Father Die’

It’s a great week for CinemAddicts, as Anderson and I lather tons of praise on the new documentary They Call Us Monsters (we both gave the flick five stars!). I also throw in my two cents on two other films (Detour, My Father Die) that are coming out Friday, January 20. More details after the jump.

CinemAddicts Ep. 53: ‘Silence’ And ‘Hidden Figures’

 

Anderson Cowan leads off this week’s CinemAddicts with a few creative changes on the program. Though, I’m a creature of habit and rarely think outside the box, I loved Anderson’s latest moves. More details are found after the jump.

CinemAddicts Ep 52: ‘Paterson’ ’20th Century Women’ ‘By Sidney Lumet’

It’s the last show of the year, and Anderson Cowan and I cover Paterson, 20th Century Women, and the documentary By Sidney Lumet. Quick recap of the year-end show, as well as a detailed breakdown of the, as Anderson likes to say, proohgrum (aka program), is found after the jump.

CinemAddicts Ep 51: ‘A Monster Calls’ ‘Patriots Day’ ‘I Daniel Blake’

 

A huge part of episode 51 featured the sting of disappointment as Anderson Cowan’s most anticipated film of the year (A Monster Calls) simply didn’t meet his expectations. And in a weird twist of fate, I’m the one who gave the film a lower rating!! Details on this week’s show after the jump.
