5 Reasons To Love Alien: Covenant (Spoiler-Free!)

One of the sad situations re: not having CinemAddicts every week is not getting the chance to praise movies like Alien: Covenant while Anderson amiably scoffs at my viewpoint. The movie was #1 at the box office but made just $36 million. Here’s my spoiler-free take on why Alien: Covenant is worth the price of admission (CinemAddicts listeners – I’m giving this movie four and a half stars!).

Review: ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’

Running at 126 minutes, director Guy Richie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is suffering the slings and arrows from critics and, more importantly, is absolutely bombing at the box office. I checked out the film this morning at a bargain matinee (shelled out $7.75!!) and I wasn’t disappointed. Before you throw me a Jessica Chastain eye roll, let me explain below!!!

CinemAddicts Ep. 64: ‘Wilson’ ‘Bokeh’ And ‘Dig Two Graves’

Apologies for posting the Episode 64 recap way too late than usual. One reason is a good one, as Anderson Cowan is currently shooting his feature debut Groupers. The other reason is I’ve been slammed to the gills as well being a Manny and figuring things out w/ my respective blogs. Alas, here’s the recap from 64 – and if there’s one thing I can leave you with regarding this post – please hunt down Dig Two Graves!!!

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!!!
