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.Read more »

Episode 116: Marvel's ANT-MAN AND THE WASP
How BIG can this review get? This isn't a very SMALL movie is it? How many times will Jack straighten his non-existent tie as he makes bad small-thing jokes? How does a Steven Universe song figure into all of this.
Jack, Korey, the OG co-host Andrew and Guest Star Matt (of https://mattthecatania.wordpress.com) are all on this episode for the THIRD Marvel Cinematic Universe entry in 2018, and this time it appears to be a lighter, less OMG THIS IS EVERYTHING entry than Infinity War... it also leaves room, in case you were wondering why this is over an hour long, for digressions into peculiar and dark Ant Man comic book lore (let's just say it involves Ant Man and a woman's private parts) and of all things the MICRONAUTS. Yeah, Matt goes full on into a talk about that - though that is well into SPOILERS, which happen at 34 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?
