MOVIE DISCUSSION: A few weeks ago, Daniel sent me a text on Messenger: Hey man, I like Harley Quinn. Birds of Prey looks neat. Want to do a discussion episode? And now, here we are, Cinematic Doctrine’s first-ever film discussion episode! This will be very different to the typical movie reviews, or better yet, audio essays that Cinematic Doctrine has previously offered. However, a lot of the process going into this episode has remained the same. Daniel and I still did our research, we still prepared some talking points, we still approached Birds of Prey’s cultural talking points with a biblical perspective. Perhaps the biggest change you’ll notice between this episode and any other film-review offered from Cinematic Doctrine is that it will be far less eloquent. Even though, that’s fine. Most podcast aren’t eloquent. For this episode, Daniel and I will talk about our immediate thoughts on Birds of Prey and how it’s R-Rating might negatively impact its themes of women’s empowerment. We talk about its underwhelming opening weekend box office numbers and the many things keeping the Birds of Prey from taking flight. We dig into its connections with perhaps one of the worst superhero films ever made, Suicide Squad, and how that film may have impacted Birds of Prey in more negative ways than one. And finally, Daniel and I discuss the value of watching a film whose main character is a villain from start to finish, and lightly contrast that to last years breakout Comic Book movie Joker. Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is Rated R for strong violence and language throughout, and some sexual and drug material. It features Margot Robbie, Rosie Perez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Ella Jay Basco, Ewan McGregor, and Chris Messina Directed by Cathy Yan Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/CinDocFBGroup Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Daniel's Twitter: @TomRhonda1Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MONTHLY MOVIE NEWS: For their January 2020 episode of Monthly Movie News, Melvin and Daniel decide to dig head-first into the Golden Globes. Although they were almost a month ago, and the Oscars are literally happening in a matter of days, Daniel went deep-diving into some fascinating subjects regarding the Golden Globes. Throughout this episode, you’ll hear our deliberations on the results of the Golden Globes, the never-ending controversy surrounding them, their mysterious and borderline conspiracy-sounding history, and ultimately, whether or not they truly matter apart from being a manufactured scheme to sell more home-video copies of popular movies. It’s an amazing adventure as we navigate the value of award shows, whether the cultural definition of good is equal to the Christian definition of good, and how, despite all of this chit-chat, we still look forward to hearing the results of the award shows. Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! // Monthly Movie News is a podcast/article released at the end of every month and contains a discussion of the month's most interesting, funniest, or ground-breaking movie-related news.

TRAILER TALK: In this episode of Trailer Talk, Dan and Melvin look at January 2020 and talk about A Quiet Place: Part II, and whether JJ Abrams is disappointed he didn’t get the chance to add A Quiet Place into the Cloverfield franchise, Tenet, and how Christopher Nolan is creative insofar as he’s allowed to have men wear suits and ties while talking somberly in an office building, Morbius, a movie that Melvin literally forgot they talked about and still can’t take seriously, and The New Mutants, which is honestly their most anticipated movie of 2018! January 2020 provided a very strange batch of trailers, and it's a common thread that, throughout their discussion, they're far more interested in what’s going on behind the scenes with these movies than the movies themselves. Sometimes, that’s where the better story is, but they're still hoping these movies turn out great.

PATRON MOVIE REVIEW: This movie was selected by my patron supporters over at the Cinematic Doctrine Patreon. Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard! I remember seeing First Reformed in theaters with my wife. We were sitting in the middle of the theater and two older women were sitting way in the back. About 2/3rds into the film, when the strangest thing started to happen on screen, I over-heard one of the older women lean over to her friend and whisper, "Okay, it's lost me!" I think that's the best way to prepare anyone going into First Reformed. It's a strange movie, no doubt about that, and when you have writer/director Paul Schrader at the helm, it's a no-brainer to think things are going to get a little... cerebral. And when tackling a pastors struggle with his faith in a world that's falling apart, maybe cerebral is just what this story needs to make itself understood. So, thanks to my lovely Patrons, let's dig into First Reformed, and I'll let you know what I think of Paul Schrader's Oscar-nominated feature! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! First Reformed is Rated R for some disturbing violent images. It features Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric the Entertainer, Victoria Hill, Philip Ettinger, Michael Gaston, and Bill Hoag. Directed by Paul Schrader Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/CinDocFBGroup Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE REVIEW: More often than not, when talking to other Christians who enjoy cinema they bring up Terrence Malick. In fact, when I visited Florida for a job opportunity, I had this exact thing happen to me. At the time, I hadn't seen a single Malick film, but I started to get some serious Malick FOMO when I saw The Tree of Life end up on a ton of "Best of the Decade" lists. Thankfully, I was near a theater showing A Hidden Life, the auteur's 10th film, and made it a priority to grab a ticket. Considering the premise of the film - the persecution of a man of faith who resists swearing allegiance to Hitler - I considered it a fairly appropriate film to review this week, so here we are. Let's dive in, and let me tell you what I thought about A Hidden Life! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! A Hidden Life is Rated PG-13 for thematic material including violent images. It features August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Maria Simon, Tobias Moretti, Ulrich Matthes, and Fanz Rogowski. Directed by Terrence Malick. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/CinDocFBGroup Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
TV SHOW REVIEW: It’s finally here! The long-awaited first-ever live-action Star Wars series has landed. And, to everyone's surprise, both critics and general audiences love it! With a healthy percentage on Rotten Tomatoes, The Mandalorian is turning out to be a welcome success for Disney. As such, it's garnered plenty of social media engagement, dominating everything across the board with its precious cargo, Baby Yoda. Hilarious when considering the democratic debates were getting less online engagement thanks to an infant space alien. But, social media engagement is one thing. What matters is if The Mandalorian is any good. So, is it? Well, let's find out! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! The Mandalorian is Rated TV-PG. It has no detailed certificate, so here's a Melvin certificate: Sci-fi action through-out, and brief mild language. It features Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, and Giancarlo Esposito. Created by Jon Favreau. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/CinDocFBGroup Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MONTHLY MOVIE NEWS: Did you all have a wonderful December? Well, we're about a week into January, so we hope you did, and hopefully, your prospects for 2020 are looking good, because boy, do we have an episode for you! In this episode of Monthly Movie News, Daniel and Melvin take you on the journey of recording-so-late-they-missed-all-the-actual-news and actually-just-covering-controversial-stuff-because-it's-both-interesting-and-buzzworthy. Yup, you read that right (hyphens and all)! Things got a little busy at the end of December, and perhaps the best idea would have been to push this off until the end of January, but we love you guys, and we love what we're doing, so here we are! We're ready to talk to you about some rumored behind-the-scenes info on the latest Star Wars release, and a particularly inflammatory Netflix special. Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! // Monthly Movie News is a podcast/article released at the end of every month and contains a discussion of the month's most interesting, funniest, or ground-breaking movie-related news. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Daniel's Twitter: @TomRhonda1 Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
TRAILER TALK: In this episode of Trailer Talk, Melvin and Dan look at the month of December and talk about No Time to Die, the latest James Bond Film, Ghostbusters Afterlife, and the concept of a franchise giving fans what they want, Black Widow, and their patient expectations, Wonder Woman 1984, and how Melvin's growing tired of ‘80s nostalgia, Mulan – and whether or not it’s quality can overshadow its controversy, and the teaser trailer for A Quiet Place: Part II. This episode was recorded on December 19th, so toward the end, you’ll hear them sharing their predictive thoughts about the end of 2019, as far as movies are concerned, and you get to see if what they thought might happen, well, happened! Not only that, you get to hear their thoughts on the homogenization of film, and Daniel tasking you, the listener, with some homework!

PATRON MOVIE REVIEW: This movie was selected by my patron supporters over at the Cinematic Doctrine Patreon. Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard! Perhaps one of the most talked-about movies of 2018, A Quiet Place took theaters by storm! Anyone and everyone were running out to catch this low-budget horror flick and it's all largely due in part to an excellent trailer campaign. I don't know about you, but I remember theaters treating the trailer for A Quiet Place with more reverence than the movie that would show afterward! And so, for this month's Patron-voted review, and the last episode of Cinematic Doctrine for the year, let's talk about A Quiet Place, it's effectiveness, and why I would consider it to be a part of a cheeky, new sub-genre of movie called Mom Horror! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! A Quiet Place is Rated PG-13for terror and some bloody images. It features Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe. Directed by John Krasinski. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook Page: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/CinDocFBGroup Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Mom Horror List: http://bit.ly/MomHorror Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.comSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE REVIEW: It's finally here! The conclusion to Disney's sequel trilogy has arrived, and it's time for the latest episode in the Skywalker saga to conclude 42-years of Star Wars films. And, as one would suspect, the disparity between critic and audience reception is as typical as ever. With a not-so-favorable percentage on Rotten Tomatoes from critics and a fairly positive response from audiences, The Rise of Skywalker is turning out to be another divisive Star Wars film across the community. Who would have guessed? Nonetheless, The Rise of Skywalker went on to make plenty of money in its opening weekend, dominating other films that debuted at the same time, not least of which was Tom Hooper's latest musical adaption, Cats (which barely made 5% of its projected budget). But, money is money is money. What matters is whether or not Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is any good. So, is it? Well, let's find out! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and action. It features Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Ian McDiarmid, Richard E. Grant, Domhnall Gleeson and Kelly Marie Tran. Directed by J.J. Abrams. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/CinDocFBGroup Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)

As you're headed back to work or buying Christmas presents, Daniel and I are here to give you some background to six new trailers that dropped during the month of November.

PATRON MOVIE REVIEW: This movie was selected by my patron supporters over at the Cinematic Doctrine Patreon. Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard! Considered a proto-slasher along the likes of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Psycho, we're nowhere near the holiday favorites of A Christmas Carol, A Christmas Story, or even Die Hard. Nope, this is Black Christmas, and we're getting our seasons greetings from Pi-Kappa-Sigma. This isn't your normal Christmas movie, and there's no guessing what's wrapped up under the tree, but why don't you go ahead and press that play button and I can give you a couple clues? (First clue: read the title!) Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! Black Christmas (1974) is Rated R. It has no detailed certificate, so here's my own certificate: Frightening images, violence and gore, brief sexual imagery, mild nudity, occasional vulgar speech, strong language, and crude humor. It features Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, Andrea Martin, and John Saxon. Directed by Bob Clark. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE REVIEW: Disney+ is finally here, and no, I didn't watch The Mandalorian. Not yet, at least. I decided my time was better spent watching another shameless live-action remake of a beloved Disney classic. You know, because reasons! Cynicism aside, I plan on binge-watching The Mandalorian later this year, and since Disney+ debuted with a limited supply of new movies, I figured Lady and the Tramp would be a great film to start with. Although I must admit (and let's keep this between us...), I haven't seen the 1955 original. I know, I know. It's practically a sin, but let's just call this review a nostalgia-free experience where I look at Charlie Bean's Lady and the Tramp with a clear lens. And, well, it sure was an experience. So, press that play button and let's get started! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! Lady and the Tramp (2019) is Rated PG for some mild thematic elements and action/peril. It features Tessa Thompson, Justin Theroux, Sam Elliot, Thomas Mann, and Kiersey Clemons. Directed by Charlie Bean. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE REVIEW: Released November 1st on Netflix, The King is a new take on Shakespeare's Henriad. Although, one would be forgiven for the immense tonal differences between the two, as screenwriter Joel Edgerton, who also performs as Falstaff in the film, decided it was best to pen the tale in a far more brooding, horrific image. Some might find this a stretch from the source material, if not also a historical departure on multiple fronts, and beg the question, "What's the point of all this?" But, dare I say it, I think that's the point. So, join me as we talk about David  Michôd's latest film, The King! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! The King is Rated R for some strong violence, and language. It features Timothée Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn, and Robert Pattinson. Directed by David Michôd. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE REVIEW: The Book of Eli is a strange film, to be sure. Released in January of 2010, Denzel Washington's post-apocalyptic samurai-like action flick seemed to shoot for the stars, and seemed to fall into the strangest of places: the Christian community. To this day, I occasionally hear chatter over the film among church-goers, and I've always found it a little interesting considering the violence within the film. Not that I've shied from watching violent flicks, as anyone who listens to this podcast knows, but it's always interested me that Christians talk about The Book of Eli among other church favorite films like The Princess Bride or the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Because of this, it was a no-brainer to give The Book of Eli a look on the Cinematic Doctrine podcast, so without further ado, press that play button and let's get into it! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! The Book of Eli is Rated R for some brutal violence and language. It features Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson, and Jennifer Beals. Directed by The Hughes Brothers. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Gamers Guide to the Galaxy Podcast #164: Gary Whitta: http://bit.ly/GGG164GaryWhitta Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MONTHLY MOVIE NEWS: October sure was a fascinating month for movies. Not only did we see the release of Todd Phillip's Joker, a long-awaited sequel in Zombieland: Double Tap, and the stateside release of Palme D'Or winner Parasite, we've had plenty of movie-related controversies break the month apart. The first few weeks were reserved entirely around worries of Joker's influence, while the last few weeks have seen a nonstop debate on whether or not we can call Marvel movies 'cinema'. Certainly, this was the perfect month to unveil a new segment on Cinematic Doctrine called Monthly Movie News. In it, my cohost Daniel and I take a look at some movie-related news we found interesting, entertaining, and worthwhile. Be sure to press that play button to hear our candid thoughts on the aftermath of the #1 Rated R movie Joker, Martin Scorsese's comments on the MCU (and whether or not he would consider producing a Neil Breen movie!), speculation regarding Kevin Feige's promotion over Marvel TV and Comics, and a few other choice stories that caught our attention in this debut episode of Monthly Movie News!

TRAILER TALK: Starting with our first look at Warner Bros.' Birds of Prey trailer and offering us an official look at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, October's brought us quite an offering of new trailers for us to munch on. Whether you're enamored with theories surrounding all of these fascinating IP, or simply interested in hearing about a few new trailers from this month, Daniel and I are here to get you guys caught up on what's happening in the world of cinema! And, let us tell you, it's pretty crazy.

PATRON MOVIE REVIEW: This movie was selected by my patron supporters over at the Cinematic Doctrine Patreon. Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard! At this day and age, it's hard to imagine the zombie genre resurrecting in full force. Yet, interestingly enough, that was the same feeling surrounding the kitschy horror zombie genre prior to the release of 28 Days Later, a film often considered alongside the great Romero films of the late 60's early 70's. And, like with 28 Days Later, we could be one film away from a resurgence of brain-eating, flesh-rotting, gross-looking, culture-shocking zombie flicks. But until then, let's look back at what gives 28 Days Later it's staying power, and think about the fascinating concepts surrounding the genre from questionable ethics, to cultural interest!  Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine!  28 Days Later is Rated R for strong violence and gore, language and nudity. It features Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris, Noah Huntley, Brendan Gleeson, and Christopher Eccleston. Directed by Danny Boyle Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
MOVIE REVIEW: The Golden Lion is the most prestigious award a film can receive at Venice Film Festival and is regarded alongside the Palme D'Or and Golden Bear, the highest prize awards at the Cannes Film Festival and Berlin Film Festival respectively. This year, Joker won the Golden Lion and garnered an eight-minute standing ovation. Alongside immense critical praise, Joker has also seen its fare share of criticism. Considered irresponsible and even dangerous, Joker finds itself under flack for what others believe is too hyper-violent and cynical. So where does Joker actually land? Is it as ground-breaking as Venice Film Festival would have you believe, is it as unsafe as publications say it is or is it a bit of both? Or, maybe neither? Press that play button, and I'll letcha know! Tune in weekly for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine! Joker is Rated R for strong bloody violence, disturbing behavior, language and brief sexual images. It features Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, and Zazie Beetz. Directed by Todd Phillips. Patreon: http://bit.ly/CinDocPatreon Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBCinDoc Letterboxd: http://bit.ly/LetterboxdCinDocList Website: CinematicDoctrine.com Email: CinematicDoctrine@Gmail.com Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/CinematicDoctrine)
