Triple Frontier (2019)

In episode 63 Hemant confesses why he missed recording an episode last week even though he had all the preparation done. It may have something to do with the release of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 video game.

Even though the new format for the show states that there will only be one review per episode, he does briefly talk about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and why he found it to be so infuriating.

He then moves on to the main review of Triple Frontier, the new J.C. Chandor Netflix film starring Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, and Charlie Hunnam.

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)

In episode 61 Hemant is excited to talk about his cure for the monotony of running on a treadmill. If you’ve listened to this podcast in the past there’s a good chance you’ve heard him rant about how much he hates treadmill runs. But thanks to a friend, he is now running using an online virtual running program called Zwift, and he couldn’t be happier.

Once he’s done running through his walkthrough of Zwift he jumps into a review of 2018’s Ralph Breaks the Internet. It was just released on Bluray and was the feature presentation of the latest family movie night.

Alpha (2018)

In episode 60 Hemant explains why there hasn’t been a new episode for nearly a month, and you can be sure that it wasn’t because he was being lazy. He then talks about the new format for the podcast which mostly involves focusing on one film per episode and keeping the reviews short and focused. The goal is to keep episodes to a nice and easy to digest length of 15 minutes.

So for the first episode under this new format Hemant shares his thoughts on the 2018 film Alpha from director Albert Hughes.

56. Bird Box

Ring in the new year with episode 56 of the podcast. Hemant talks about the low key New Year’s Eve celebrations that he has adopted, and how he is perfectly fine with this life choice.

Since he was not hung over on New Year’s day, he had a chance to spend some time with the PSVR game The Exorcist: Legion which scared the bejeezus out of him.

It’s then on to a quick review of Paul Feig’s newest film starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, A Simple Favor, before diving into the feature review of Bird Box. Find out if Sandra Bullock teaming up with Netflix produced a worthwhile experience.
