Cinemaholics Podcast #185 – Unpregnant, The Social Dilemma, Cuties, #Alive, All In: The Fight For Democracy

The Cinemaholics are going on a road trip! Metaphorically, at least. Our first pit stop this week is an in-depth review of Unpregnant, a buddy road trip comedy streaming exclusively on HBO Max, and it stars Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira. Next, we travel all the way to the internet for The Social Dilemma, a new Netflix documentary about how social media is basically ruining society. Fun! After that, we head to France to discuss yet another Netflix film, Cuties, which has been caught in a maelstrom of controversy considering its sexual content. But that’s not all, we go on a detour out east for #Alive, a new South Korean zombie movie on (you guessed it) Netflix! Last, we head on home for an American documentary on Prime Video called All In: The Fight For Democracy, which is about voter suppression in these United States.

Music in this episode: “thinking of you” by mommy.

  1. At this point, I mainly listen for the comedy sketches which have been getting only better and better (the reviews are just a nice bonus.) Speaking of which, I “loved” Social Dilemma, but in an exhausting way. I feel absolutely wrecked by it and recommended it to everyone in my family. A bunch of them are definitely controlled by social media, especially Facebook and for the first time they’re actually talking to me about this and reexamining some of the bullshit they’ve been consuming in those conspiracy groups.

  2. I’m really enjoying Abby’s contribution to the show so far. I just listened to her breakdown of CUTIES and it really resonates, especially since I’m on the low side of liking that one like her and Jon. The show has been sorely needing a more consistent female voice on the pods, and I think you boys really lucked out with her joining.
