    Predictions for the 92nd Academy Awards Nominations

    Awards season is upon us, and we have opinions on what we think will get nominated at the 92nd annual Academy Awards. This was a tough exercise in that our hearts want very different things than what the Academy usually nominates. All three of us made predictions for various categories and we walk you through what we agreed on as a group, and where we differed and what our thought process was. Listen to this before the nominations are announced to get ready, or listen after the nominations are announced to see how many we got wrong.

    Destroyer, Glass and Suspiria

    A snow storm tried to derail our podcast recording this week, but nothing gets in the way of telling our fine listeners about movies! This week Kristen gives us the low-down on the Nicole Kidman revenge story Destroyer, we ride the roller coaster of quality that is Glass, and then we all watched the 2018 "remake" of Suspiria which just has a lovely cult in it. All that, more inductions into the Pyramid and so much more!

    Replicas, Bird Box and Golden Globes Reactions

    We've hit the desolate, barren tundra that is January movies, but we pressed on anyways! This week we see Keanu Reeves spit ludicrous techno-babble at us with Replicas, discuss the cultural phenomenon that is Bird Box, and discuss Bradley Cooper's awful suit and Rami Malek trying to get Nicole Kidman's attention at the Golden Globes.

    If Beale Street Could Talk and Escape Room

    It's the first week of 2019 so we decide to catch up on films from 2018! We talk about the heavy but beautifully done If Beale Street Could Talk, the next film from acclaimed director Barry Jenkins who last did Moonlight. To lighten the mood up, we get together in a small theater and see the horror / thriller film Escape Room which is fantastic and exactly what you think it is.

    To all those who celebrate, Merry Christmas! Our gift to you today is we review one of the best movies of the year, and one of the worst. Lucky you!

We also talk about the SAG award nominations and induct some high profile people into the Pyramid!

    Boy Erased, The Front Runner, Robin Hood and Green Book

    We somehow survived the insanity that was the Thanksgiving weekend, and we even saw some movies to boot!

    The Grinch, Widows and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    It's a mad dash for movie studios to get their movies out and we're trying our best to stay up to date. This week we get into the holiday spirit with The Grinch, impressed with the stellar craftsmanship of Widows, and are perplexed by the very uneven Crimes of Grindelwald.

    Wildlife, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, and Overlord

    We saw two fantastic films and a disappointing movie this week, and it's probably not the one you think! Kristen joins Joe for his Mediocre Monday Movie this week with the disjointed Wildlife, the gang can't stop gushing about how wonderful Can You Ever Forgive Me is, and finally the group can't stop looking away from all the gushing blood and gore from the high octane Overlord.

    The Hate U Give and Halloween

    When we aren't seeing movies, we are enjoying the process of reading 1-Star Reviews about Movie Theaters and Cruises. After that though, we discuss how impressed we were with the hard hitting but masterfully done The Hate U Give. While the box office was buzzing about the return of Michael Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween, we were a little less enthralled with the quality and just how safe they played it. At least John Carpenter's music was still stellar! Finally, we finish off the episode by inducting Common and Jamie Lee into our acting Pyramid.

    The Old Man & the Gun and Bad Times at the El Royale

    Our intrepid group of movie fanatics discuss the unfortunate nature of First Man getting buried by the Venom / Star is Born hype. They then move on to review the delightfully well crafted The Old Man & the Gun with Robert Redford, and then the good but slightly missing the mark Bad Times at the El Royale. As always, the group then finishes up the podcast by inducting Robert Redford and Jeff Bridges into the acting Pyramid.

    Life Itself, Hellfest, and Colette

    After a few minutes of trying to avoid the topic, Joey & Kristen share their many disappointments with Life Itself. Seriously, don't go see this movie. After that they gush about how much fun Hellfest was, and give a glowing review of the stellar Colette.

    The Wife, A Simple Favor, White Boy Rick, and The Predator

    Kristen reports on the Glenn Close acting tour de force that is The Wife, the style of A Simple Favor is off the charts but the ending needs some work, White Boy Rick might be the most disappointing movie of the year, and The Predator is a fun action movie romp!

  30. Thumb 1534170452 artwork

    Christopher Robin, BlackkKlansman, The Meg, and Hot Summer Nights

    Katie gets really upset with Christopher Robin, we give our thoughts on the heavy BlackkKlansman, Kristen gushes about the campy fun of The Meg, and Katie & Joe discuss the average-ness that is Hot Summer Nights.

Just as a bonus, we give you 9 of our favorite Tom Cruise movies that you should go out and watch immediately if you haven't already.
