The Wages of Cinema
About This Show
A podcast that is practically all about MOVIES! Cinema, films, celluloid, digital, whatever you want to call it. Jack and Andrew are the hosts, and we talk about new movies, classics, cult work, things we've seen and have never seen, special segments about directors and styles and trends, and 'Required Reading' which is about movie books. And the "Local Vocal" series gives you in-depth interviews with NYC/NJ based filmmakers, actors, artists and musicians.

Episode 95: Darren Aronofsky's MOTHER!
This just in, people who follow things happening in movies: the seventh feature film by director Darren "Black Swan Requiem for a Dream Pi Wrestler Fountain Noah" Aronofsky featuring a perplexed Jennifer Lawrence just got an 'F' on Cinemascore.
First question is: what the hell is Cinemascore, and second one is, who cares? What matter is what the Wages of Cinema thought about this movie that is getting only a LOT of talk (and this time, unlike in recent political talk, it's fair to say there's opinions on many sides, on many sides).
Jack, Andrew, and guests Korey and Matthew Catania (of the https://mattthecatania.wordpress.com blog) saw this movie so you do or don't have to. Which way will we side? Listen and find out.
SPOILERS at 42 minutes in.

Rated 5 out of
The hosts of the Wages of Cinema have a great rapport with one another, and this comes through as they talk about new and classic movies. There's witty banter, serious analysis, and personal discussions on which films have meant the most to them - all while talking about the new movies they've seen in the past week (the two-minute movie mile has a wide variety, so if one movie doesn't grab you the next might), the 'List' segments (more in-depth stuff there), and then they have a main subject. My favorite part is their 'Required Reading', which they don't do all the time but is usually a solid bet for recommendations of quality movie books.
They're not Siskel & Ebert, but then who is?
