Also on this week’s podcast: Aladdin turns 25, reviews of Thor: Ragnarok and A Bad Mom’s Christmas, Twilight Zone and Lord of the Rings return to TV, Disney is steamrolling theaters, women are finally claiming original spy franchises, and another round of Movie Innuendo. This time, in the form of Harry Potter!

And then, head over to Hawkins, Indiana as we discuss every single character and arc over Season 2 of Netflix’s Stranger Things. From Eleven’s journey to Mike’s absence to Bob Newby: Superhero. It’s all covered and things are about to get even stranger on this extended and spoiler-filled look at the biggest TV event since Game of Thrones!

The Bachelors stars JK Simmons as Bill, a calculus teacher who is still reeling from the death of his beloved wife, and mother to their son Wes (Josh Wiggins). The film opens with Bill at his son’s bedside, explaining they need to make a change. So they pick up their life and move to Los Angeles where they begin anew at a private school run by Bill’s old friend, Paul (Kevin Dunn).

Bill and Wes both welcome new women into their lives in the form of Julie Delpy’s French teacher, Carine, and a damaged recluse in Odeya Rush's Lacy. Bill struggles to move on with his life, while Wes desperately wants to live again, and both women play a part in waking them each up to letting go of the past and embracing the moment.

The Bachelors is a very sweet film that takes a look at what happens when two people lose the most important person in their lives. It’s about grief, love, loss, and life.

For this exclusive interview, writer and director Kurt Voelker stops by to discuss his latest film, why the topic spoke to him, keeping grief grounded, and how he came into the stellar cast that makes up his film. 

The Bachelors is now available On Demand and in select theaters.

Haze is director David Burkman’s take on fraternity and sorority hazing. Shortly after another pledge has died while being hazed, we follow Nick, a new pledge who takes us through this journey of humiliation, debauchery, and occasionally brotherhood. We also follow Mimi, Nick’s best friend who pledges to the affiliate sorority so she can be closer to Nick. Unlike Nick, this doesn’t mean as much to Mimi, it’s simply a way to keep them together. 

The film follows both of them as they engage in numerous obstacles, parties, and even crimes, all while forgetting to handle their studies, and ultimately leads up to Hell Week. Also, Nick’s brother Pete is trying to bust the fraternity doing anything that will bring them down. 

For our exclusive interview, writer and Director David Burkman dropped by to break down his new film and why college hazing was such a personal story to tell. We discuss making the film, as well as how realistic many of these hazing rituals actually are. Don't miss Haze, which is now available on VOD and in selected theaters, nor this interview with David Burkman.

In Never HereMireille Enos stars as Miranda Fall, an installation artist who follows, photographs and documents total strangers for her respective pieces. Late one night after a show, her married lover Paul (Sam Shepard in his final role) witnesses a crime outside Miranda’s apartment. She then agrees to cover Paul’s witnessing of the crime as Miranda takes his place. After she partakes in a lineup - where she obviously cannot pick the offender - Miranda follows one of the curious men from the lineup and a new art project begins. As she comes to believe someone is stalking her, she ascertains that it could just be the man she believes to have committed the original crime, or is her own voyeurism finally getting the best of her?

Never Here is a film that wears it's shade of Hitchcock meshed with the more creative aspects of artistic expression proudly on its sleeve. It is very much a thriller, while at the same time serving as a thinking piece on voyeurism and many of our own beliefs that no one's privacy remains secret in this day and age.

Aaron sits down with the writer and director of Never Here, Camille Thoman. Camille has a unique canvas to showcase her film, as the basic construct is that of a thriller, yet there is much more at play here as it bleeds into feelings of paranoia and perhaps even shades of our own voyeuristic guilt. Camille elaborates on this blending of genres, why Mireille was the perfect choice for Miranda, and working with Sam on his final film.

Never Here releases in theaters October 20th, 2017.  Enjoy this exclusive interview with writer and director, Camille Thoman.
