Cinemaholics #37: Only The Brave Review


This week, the Cinemaholics saw Only the Brave and they’re more than ready to talk about the movie, which is based on true events surrounding the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Starring Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges and Jennifer Connelly, this is a biographical drama full of some big surprises, and we definitely recommend that you see it before digging into the real story.

Elsewhere on the show, Jon, Will and Maveryke also talk about The Snowman, starring Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson and directed by Tomas Alfredson. Based on the seventh novel of a series of detective stories by Jo Nesbø, The Snowman hasn’t exactly taken the critics or audiences by storm (and don’t get us started on Geostorm), so sit back and hear Will’s thoughts on how the David Fincher knockoff plays out.

Following that, Jon and Maveryke rave about Fincher’s work in Mindhunter Season 1, now on Netflix, as well as Maveryke’s take on The Confession Tapes, a recent documentary series made by the streaming service. Finally, we finish things up with Will’s review of 1922, a new Stephen King adaptation also on Netflix.
