First Run - 3/30/2019

We're introducing a new segment, Cinemaspection: First Run, in which we take a look at films currently playing in a theater near you!!

For our first installment, we meet the enemy and it is Us, the newest horror movie from Oscar-winner Jordan Peele. Then we struggle to maintain our grip on reality as we dance through Gaspar Noe's descent into drug-fueled madness, Climax. Finally, we take one giant leap with the riveting NASA documentary Apollo 11.

Episode 84: Boston Science Fiction Marathon SF44

Every February, sci-fi fans from across New England converge on Somerville, Massacusetts for the annual Boston Science Fiction Film Festival, culminating in the Sci-Fi Marathon, a 24-hour endurance test for film fans featuring a wide variety of movies displaying, the best, worst, and weirdest of the genre. While we couldn't attend in person for this, the 44th year of the event, we decided to play along at home and record our thoughts on the films presented for your amusement. Over the course of the line-up, we'll deal with dramatic size changes, take multiple trips to the moon, fight off bizarre alien infections, and struggle to remain coherent despite our growing fatigue. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and brain-addling exhaustion.
