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.

Episode 52: Eyes Wide Shut & Reflecting on Year One of Red 7

It’s hard to believe, but this episode marks the one year anniversary of the Red 7 Movie Cast podcast. I find it pretty crazy that I’ve been able to maintain a weekly podcast for this long. I start off this episode reflecting on the last year, talking about what I’ve learned from producing this podcast, how I have found it to be fulfilling, and how I see it evolving over the next year.

After the celebration I continue with film number four of my Stanley Kubrick Experience, sharing my thoughts on his final film from 1999, Eyes Wide Shut.
