"Great podcast as always. I'm always here for any appreciation of Dolores Claiborne, which I've revisited often as a big Stephen King fan and believe it to be the best recreation of his peculiar mixture of melancholy, camp and grotesque." -Ben1283

"So glad you mentioned Paul Newman in terms of Best actors ever. I just find his mix of movie star charisma and serious actor bonafides such a heart melting combination." - DrewC

Film Bitch Awards: Heroes, Villains, and Divas of the Year

It's a mad race to get everything done by the Oscars. Three more categories have been announced in our own extensive annual awards: Hero the Year, Diva of the Year, and Villain of the Year. Black Panther dominates these categories, being nominated in each one of them, but you'll also see honors for Paddington 2, A Simple Favor, Mary Poppins Returns, Hereditary, The Favourite, Aquaman, Oceans 8, and more. Check it out.

Box Office Possible - Fallout

by Nathaniel R

The Mission Impossible franchise (in movie form at least) is 22 years old and just won't quit (and neither will Tom Cruise) having its best opening weekend yet with film #6, Fallout. It's also Cruise's second biggest opening weekend ever after only War of the Worlds (2005). My personal favorite of the M:I franchise is Ghost Protocol from 2011. Yours?

Review Catch-up: Eighth Grade, Ant-Man and the Wasp, etc...

by Nathaniel R

A few recent major pictures we didn't post full reviews on. Oops. Let's take them in order of preference...

Eighth Grade (Bo Burnham)
Synopsis: A slice of life in middle school as an introverted teenager with an unwatched YouTube channel tries to survive eighth grade. 
Capsule: Such is the miracle of this movie that I felt pangs of recognition all throughout it even though I am basically the dad's age and not the daughter's, and also not a parent. I went to middle school a million years ago and so much about life as a teenager has changed radically since then. We didn't have social media, cel phones, and gun drills when I was a teenager...

What did you see this weekend? 

by Nathaniel R

Dinosaurs or a Super Family? That was the big choice for moviegoers this weekend but since The Incredibles 2 had debuted last week to gargantuan numbers a lot of people have already seen it and flocked to the Jurassic World sequel this time despite its terrible reviews. In other box office news Oceans 8 has crossed the $100 million mark, Solo crossed $200 million and Deadpool 2 (BARF!) crossed $300 million proving once again that people have terrible taste. I kid. To each their own...

Top 5 Suits Cate Blanchett Wore to Promote Ocean's 8

by Murtada

Tonight’s the night! Ocean’s 8 starts playing and we will finally get the full fashion parade of Cate Blanchett’s costumes. Word is that she’s almost exclusively in suits. That wardrobe is already making the internet aflutter. But Cate has also promoted the film wearing suits to every premiere and press engagement. Her co-star Anne Hathaway said it best at the movie’s New York premiere Tuesday night:

Cate Blanchett has owned her lady suits this entire movie process up to now. She's that great of an actress. She's committed to her character. We wouldn't dare wear a suit for the premiere!"

So here are the top five suits Cate Blanchett wore promoting Ocean’s 8:

#5 - Today Show, designer unknown

This pale lavender number below is cute and all but it wins this placement because it was what Cate wore when she appeared alongside Sarah Paulson in the now viral non-interview at the Today show...
