New Podcast Episode and Letterboxd HQ

We've been busy

Wasn’t sure I’d make a newsletter for this week, but I do have some updates for you.

It’s the Pictures released a new podcast episode on gambling movies. What do I mean? I mean movies like The Hustler, California Split, Uncut Gems, Mississippi Grind, and more.

We’ve also signed up for a Letterboxd HQ account. This allows extra promotion to the podcast and newsletter, while also giving the podcast a more stylish home. I’ll also be doing some smaller reviews there if you want more reviews. I’d appreciate it if you could follow the account on Letterboxd. If you’ve never used the service before, it’s a way to keep track of what movies you’ve seen and interact with other movie enthusiasts.

It was a big weekend for new streaming releases, so you might want to check out a new movie below. That’s all until next week.



One of the trailers I linked to last week was for a new Peacock original show, Girls5eva. I watched the first two episodes and I’m looking forward to finishing the brief eight episode season. Kristen Lopez from Indiewire reviewed the show and tells you why it’s Peacock’s best original series.

I mentioned some of the issues with the HFPA and the Golden Globes on past episodes of the podcast. NBC is not going to air the show in 2022 and Miles Surrey of The Ringer wonders if this is the end of The Golden Globes. Good Riddance.

A Knight’s Tale celebrated its 20th anniversary recently and while I have not seen the movie myself, I know it has a great deal of fans and admirers. Ashley Spencer talks about the film in this article for Vulture.

Jason Statham has a new movie in theaters with the Guy Ritchie movie, Wrath of Man. Isaac Feldberg has a piece up at Paste Magazine talking about the action star and what has made him such a fascinating actor throughout the years.
