The movie event of the summer is here and we couldn’t just choose one of these great films to discuss, so we’re talking about both! Patrick is out on vacation this weekend but Meredith Loftus is filling on to discuss what made Barbenheimer such a phenomenon, what makes Greta Gerwig’s colorful satirical comedy so meaningful, and how unique and powerful of a biopic Christopher Nolan has crafted. It’s a celebration of great cinema, with a few criticisms here and there, and we hope you enjoy.

In this week’s episode, we finish up discussing Andrew Garfield’s turn wearing the Spider-Man mask.

(SPOILER FREE) Visionary director Luc Besson returns to the big screen with a stunningly beautiful sci-fi epic. There are some thing to really like about this film, and other things not so much.
