Episode 37: Crazy Rich Asians & Extinction

In episode 37 Hemant talks a bit about a hectic week at the office where his team was pushing to get their new product out into production for a new client. He then chats a bit about how he is planning to start dabbling in some personal video projects again after neglecting that hobby for far too long.

He also briefly touches on three movies he re-visited this past week including Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!, Ant-Man, and the remake of The Taking of Pelham 123.

He wraps up the episode with his feature reviews of the new Netflix original sci-fi film Extinction, and the hot new romantic comedy that just hit theaters, Crazy Rich Asians.

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.
