Oscar season is upon us and we're breaking down each category to the best of our ability (sorry short films, we suck). For all 24 categories, we'll go through the nominees and give you the official CinemaMD pick to win each category. Just don't sue us if you lose your Office Oscar Pool.
We talk about Thor: Ragnarok for awhile before diving into the first ever Cinema MD Film Super-Hero Fantasy Draft. Dana and Matt each draft their top 5 film versions of Super Heroes for their starting 5.
Dana and I discuss The Meyerowitz Stories from director Noah Baumbach as well as another Baumbach film: The Squid and the Whale. We'll review both films, but also talk the similarities between the two films, especially between the father characters in each film, played by Dustin Hoffman and Jeff Daniels.
We're playing catch up after missing a week to the flu, so we've got a jam packed hour-long horror movie episode with reviews of Suspiria, A Dark Song, and The Babysitter. This is also our first ever 3-host episode as Jon joins Dana and Matt this time.
We review new releases Wind River and Darren Aronofsky's controversial and divisive Mother! as well as the classic 80's action movie Robocop. There's also a discussion on why Cinemascore is possibly the worst way to grade a movie in the history of ever.
Reviews of Ingrid Goes West starring Aubrey Plaza and Elizeabeth Olsen, Good Time starring Robert Pattinson, and the hidden gem Chef, written by, directed by, and starring Jon Favreau. We'll also be looking at some breakout performances by actors who basically sucked up to that point.
New reviews of Brigsby Bear and Logan Lucky as well as a look back at Tim Burton's classic Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (which Dana watched for the first time ever). We'll also be discussing more of our favorites that fall into the category of weird or bizarre.
