 Elvis and The Black Phone – Only a Few Hangups | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5415

The Cinemaholics are in the building. Metaphorically. We've got two big films to cover this week, starting with Baz Luhrmann's Elvis, a super long, super glam biopic covering the life of the king of rock and roll with Austin Butler and Tom Hanks in lead roles. Next, Scott Derrickson's latest horror in quite a while just came out, and we're answering the call for The Black Phone, which stars Ethan Hawke and is based on a short story by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King). We also open up the show with some box office catchup and how summer blockbusters from the last month or so are faring as we move into July.

 Top Gun: Maverick – Double the Gun | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6076

We have the need for Tom Cruise. Or at least a Tom Cruise Mission: Impossible movie with a Top Gun soundtrack. That's right, we're reviewing Top Gun: Maverick this week, which is a legacy sequel to the 1986 nostalgia classic. We open the show discussing why it's flying high in terms of box office and critical reviews. Speaking of which, we also talk about Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, a new Disney+ hybrid animation comedy that some are calling the spiritual successor to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? And we finish the show with a barrel roll, diving right into the acclaimed French drama, Happening, which is about a young woman trying to get an abortion in the 1960s. Talk about a triple feature!

Yes, all men. And by that we mean yes, all we talk about in this episode is Men, a new A24 folk horror from Alex Garland, director and writer of Ex Machina and Annihilation. Starring Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear(s), Men has everyone of all genders turning their heads...in the theater to ask the person behind them WTF they're watching. In addition to our review of the film, we discuss some of the general critical reception to the movie, Alex Garland's work leading up to this film, the latest buzz around this year's Cannes Film Festival, and some other flicks hitting theaters and streaming this week. Finally, we finish up the show with some chit chat about Will's first trip to California, Jon's wedding, and some theatrical shenanigans in San Francisco.

 On the Count of Three – Best Last Day Ever | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3149

Special guest Cory Woodroof fittingly sits in the third chair this week for our review of On the Count of Three, a dark...buddy comedy? No, that's not quite right. But it is an indie dramedy (maybe?) directed by Jerrod Carmichael in his feature debut. He also stars with Christopher Abbot in this Sundance favorite about two friends who decide today will be the last day of their lives. The film also stars Tiffany Haddish, J. B. Smoove, Lavell Crawford, and Henry Winkler.

Let's talk about X. And Deep Water! Two movies that are doing it. One is an original 70s-based slasher horror in theaters from director Ti West starring Mia Goth and Jenna Ortega. The other is a psychological erotic thriller on Hulu from director Adrian Lyne starring Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas.

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.

 Cyrano – Peter Dinklage's Song of Solomon | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3447

We're not singing our thoughts on Cyrano, but we probably should be.

 Texas Chainsaw Massacre – Who would go to brunch with Leatherface? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2825

We've decided to mess with Texas Chainsaw Massacre. On a special bonus episode of the Cinemaholics Podcast, we review the new Netflix horror film directed by David Blue Garcia (Tejano) and produced by Fede Álvarez (Don't Breathe, Evil Dead). The film, which is a direct sequel to the 1974 original classic (and direct copy of 2018's Halloween) stars Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade) and a few other people who probably wish this movie had never happened.
