The Batman – But also After Yang and Fresh!

Cinematic vengeance is ours on this week's episode of the podcast, where we're covering the latest from DC, plus two Sundance favorites!

The Batman is demolishing the box office right now, but the real bat signal is that notification on your phone telling you it’s time for a new episode of Cinemaholics. That’s right, we’re reviewing Matt Reeves’ reboot of the Batman franchise, now starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, and plenty more familiar (and unfamiliar?) faces. Later in the show we also discuss the lovely A24 sci-fi indie gem that is After Yang, from Columbus director Kogonada, which is now playing in limited release. Then it’s time for Fresh, now on Hulu, a romantic thriller (sort of) starring Sebastian Stan and Daisy Edgar-Jones.
