We celebrate the triumphant return of the co-host of The Cinenauts Podcast, Ian de Borja.We tackle the ultimate A24 horror gem starring a young Florence Pugh in her star making performance, in Ari Aster’s Midsommar.

More than a film, this is an experience. Surreal, funny, gorgeously shot, with stunningly beautiful production design in completely creating a remote cult of people living according to the old ways in the remote outback of Sweden. But thru all of that, is Florence, in…

We celebrate the triumphant return of the host of Recode Media, Peter Kafka.We tackle the incredible Steven Soderberg noir film based on the Elmore Leonard novel starring George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez, Out of Sight!

You are certainly not likely to be bored.

We cover Haitch’s transformation at the Hoffman Process, go deep (deeep!) on the frustratingly conflicted conclusion of Elon’s War of Aggression, now that he lost and was forced to buy (and subsequently ruin) Twitter, and it’s broader implications on society. And then we cover the Star Trek spoof that became a classic and offers the anti-cynicism protection we need to face a challenging world, Galaxy Quest!

What a movie! It…

Better admit upfront that I love dance films, and horror is my favourite genre. So I was ready for this.
The opening scene got me really excited. Was this a snow horror like The Thing? The talking heads scene only reinforced this anticipation. The library of classic horror titles framing the TV set was a source of more excitement. Then the disco music kicked in. Woo-hoo, let’s go!
Cue musical interlude 🎼.
I laughed when morning came and the slow…
