Episode 45: Skyscraper, Halloween, and Apostle

We’re well into October and Hemant is continuing with his horror movie theme for the month. In this episode he starts off with a couple of films he revisited. He ended up re-watching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story while running on his treadmill, and explains why he loves that film so much. He then briefly talks about Iron Man 2 and why that films still works for him.

It’s then onto the feature reviews for the week including Skyscraper the new Dwayne Johnson film that just hit bluray and Halloween, the 1978 genre defining film from John Carpenter. He wraps up the episode by sharing his thoughts on the new Netflix film that premiered at Fantastic Fest earlier this year, Apostle.

Episode 34: Rampage & Set It Up

For someone who hasn’t really committed to watching many TV series over the last few years, Hemant has been steadily getting back into enjoying some shows. This past week he wrapped up seasons 1 and 2 of the Amazon Original series Sneaky Pete starring Giovanni Ribisi, and shares his thoughts on it.

Ready Player One also hit homes this week so Hemant and his son re-visited it on Bluray. He doesn’t talk too much about the film (since he covered pretty extensively in a previous episode), but he does go off on a bit of a tangent discussing how UltraViolet digital copies that are included with many Blurays are basically useless in Canada if you want to watch them on a device like an AppleTV or Roku.

It’s then onto the reviews for the week and he starts off with Rampage, starring Dwayne Johnson, which was also recently released on Bluray. He wraps up the episode with film #17 on his 52 Films Directed by Women project, Set It Up, a Netflix Original film starring Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell, and directed by Claire Scanlon.
