Cinemaholics Podcast #123 – Yesterday

Do we believe in Yesterday? Special guest Kimber Myers joins the show to discuss the latest film from director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Richard Curtis, which explores a world where the Beatles never existed, and the one person who remembers them tries to pass their legendary music off as his own. We also discuss Midsommar and Wild Rose, then dive into some feedback from last week’s show.

This week’s theme music is “The World Is Universal (Universal Fanfare)” by Daniel Pemberton. Our review bumper is “Yesterday (From The Film ‘Yesterday’)” by Himesh Patel.

Show Notes:

  • 00:02:45 – Kimber talks about Midsommar and Wild Rose

  • 00:25:00 – Why are animated films underperforming at the box office?

  1. I heavily appreciate there were spoilers for this episode. I walked out of YESTERDAY confounded, but having had a mostly good time. My wife loved it, and we’ll probably catch it on streaming by the end of the year. Just solid comfort food, but I needed this discussion to wrap my brain around just…all of that ending!

  2. I’m loving these weekly off-topic conversations. I’ve been dreading switching away from my Blu-ray collection, but it’s just so expensive, and the alternative is even freakier.I’m here though for the PADDINGTON 2 love.

  3. ok you talked about your favorite movies of the year so far last week, but what was your biggest surprise?

  4. First of let me just say Richard Curtis wrote and directed my 2nd favorite romance movie of all time, next to the ‘before trilogy’, which is ‘About time’. I know most people don’t like it that much and say it’s a chick flick but I loved it.
    The thing about Richard Curtis’s writing in about time is that He uses the sci-fi concept to add a little more magic to the story and keep things interesting. You’re not supposed to dissect the mechanics of it otherwise you’ll end up disappointed. About time is a flawed movie with huge plot holes but once you overlook that you start to see the beauty in his work. It’s about how the characters deal with changes that come inevitably in life like marriage, kids, family, grief, happiness and growth. And I for one think he did a good job of portraying that in a way that’s interesting to see and with a British charm.
    His stories doesn’t have one specific goal to be achieved rather they just go along showing you what happens to the characters as time passes. I still haven’t got a chance to see ‘yesterday’ but I’m glad you guys somewhat liked it. Looking forward to listening to the spoiler part once I see the movie!
