This past week may not have opened on a—ahem—high note, but that doesn’t mean the Cinemaholics are tuning out on the latest batch of film releases. After a quick birthday shoutout for our favorite movies ever and a mini review of “Space Force” on Netflix, we jump into our in-depth review of The High Note, a new feel-good comedy-drama starring Dakota Johnson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Ice Cube, and Kelvin Harrison Jr. We also discuss Body Cam starring Mary J. Blige and Nat Wolff, the new Netflix documentary mini-series Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, and Hope Gap starring Annette Bening and Bill Nighy.
This week’s theme music: “Go to Bed” by Sarcastic Sounds.
