Cinemaholics Podcast #198 – The Prom, I’m Your Woman, Let Them All Talk, Wolfwalkers, Wander Darkly, Songbird

The holiday season is upon us, so you know what that means! Time to celebrate the…prom? Well, OK, we’re really celebrating the annual big-budget December movie musical, which this year is Ryan Murphy’s The Prom, now streaming on Netflix and starring Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, and Keegan-Michael Key. We cover several other movies as well, which include Julia Hart’s new indie noir drama I’m Your Woman on Amazon Prime Video starring Rachel Brosnahan, Steven Soderbergh’s Let Them All Talk (also starring Meryl Streep) on HBO Max, the hand-drawn animated film Wolfwalkers on Apple TV+, the time-bending indie Wander Darkly starring Diego Luna and Sienna Miller, and Songbird, which stars KJ Apa and Sofia Carson.

Intro music: “Christmas Time Is Here” by Vince Guaraldi Trio and “Jingle Bells” by Mil Dawn

  1. I’m interested in most of the Disney things, but the only projects I’m actually excited excited about are the animated movies, mainly Pixar. Other than that, there’s just nothing original to see here.

  2. Mister Millennial, Peer Pressure Polly, Hipster Henry, and even Know it all Noel? We’ve been spoiled to bunches this week. Merry Christmas, Cinemaholics.

  3. I fully expected to hate The Prom as I’m not really a Ryan Murphy fan, but good god this thing was entertaining! Music was catchy, performances were decent-to-great. Yeah, I’m surprised this is getting so much heat.
