Episode 47: Summer of 84

In this episode Hemant reports from the treadmill once again and talks about what worked and didn’t work for him during a rewatch of 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane.

He also revisited Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One this week with a bunch of 8 year olds. Why you ask? Well it was his oldest son’s birthday party and the main event was a showing of the film in the Rouge Cinema. Hemant gives the lowdown of his experience.

It’s then on to the feature review for the week, 2018’s Summer of 84, yet another film trying to ride the 80s wave that’s recently taken over Hollywood.

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.
