Hollywood has been on a Pinocchio tear lately, but we might’ve found the good one. This week on Cinemaholics, we’re reviewing Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, a stop-motion animated version of the classic tale set in 1930s and streaming on Netflix. We kick things off with what is most likely our first conversation about football on this podcast (don’t worry, it’s brief). And we do a short segment on why awards-season movies are struggling to gain traction at the box office this year.
