Week 29 brings us Star Trek Beyond which doesn’t need explaining, or does it? There’s also a new Mike Birbiglia comedy about an improv troop called Don’t Think Twice and Greg and Anderson think about that for a bit. Train to Busan is a Korean take on Zombies and Elisabeth Moth gets all emotional in Queen of Earth (currently streaming in Netflix) and Greg talks a little bit about the differences in Zack Snyder’s cut of Batman v Superman vs. the theatrical cut for his DVD pick of the week.
Greg and Anderson talk controversy and Woody as Cafe Society hits theaters this week as does Bryan Cranston’s The Infiltrator which is based on actual accounts of undercover work done in the 80’s in an effort to take down Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel. A fantastic little western in Slow West which currently streams on Amazon Prime is covered as is Greg’s DVD pick, My Golden Days.
Summer is well underway and while that usually means nothing but explosions and comic book heroes donning the screens at our multiplexes, Greg and Anderson cover some smaller gems and go documentary heavy on week 27 of Cinemaddicts. Alternative parenting is examined in Captain Fantastic while alternative medicine is explored in Nuts!, a fascinating documentary about Dr. John Romulus Brinkley, one of America’s most interesting salesmen. Staying with the anti-modern society theme, Anderson brings the doc Surfiwise (now on Netflix) and a Noam Chomsky doc called Requiem for the American Dream (also on Netflix) into the fold while Greg shares the first ever film noir with the Peter Lorre driven Stranger on the Third Floor.
CinemAddicts hits the halfway point of 2016 and we bring a slew of films to discuss including an offbeat adventure/comedy in Swiss Army Man, a beautiful doc on autism in Life Animated as well as a subtle John le Carré adaptation called Our Kind of Traitor and a Bruce Willis heist film with a twist titled Marauders.
Week 25 on CinemAddicts brings us a whole host of movies including Nicolas Winding Refn’s new one called The Neon Demon, a Matthew McConaughey vehicle in Free State of Jones, a Todd Solondz sequel to his 1995 Welcome to the Dollhouse with Wiener-Dog as well as a really fun one starring Sam Neill called Hunt for the Wilderpeople. A low budget, but effective horror film called Hush is the streaming pick of the week and Greg’s DVD pick of the week is the Elizabeth Taylor classic Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
CinemAddicts brings a new episode with a full spectrum from an unbelievable documentary about tickling to the new Pixar film and then to small film with Henry Rollins playing a serial killer who collects eyeballs. Greg gives 5 stars to a Cary Grant film called People Will Talk while Anderson can’t stop talking about his streaming pick called They Look Like People. Oh, and Greg might have a tickling fetish.
Week 23 brings us few small films worth discussing including King Jack, De Palma and Diary of a Chambermaid as well as the massive budgeted movie, directed by David Bowie’s son and based on an MMORPG called Warcraft. An Honest Liar is a great little doc about James Randi which is currently streaming on Netflix and Greg brings an early 90s Rob Lowe/James Spader film into the discussion with Bad Influence.
This is CinemAddicts and Popstar has arrived which turns out to be a really fun one to talk about. Greg and Anderson also discuss The Fits as well as the small scale, sci-fi thinker Approaching the Unknown. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Hombre are covered before week 22 comes to an end. Thanks for listening and reviewing and subscribing.
CinemAddicts comes strong this week with some X-Men: Apocalypse, a little Alice through the Looking Glass and one of the best films of the year to this point in Presenting Princess Shaw. Anderson gets Divine with his streaming pick and Greg doesn’t disappoint with his Frank Tashlin Blu-ray pick.
