Cinemaholics #42: The Disaster Artist Review


Oh, hi Cinemaholics listeners. It’s time to review The Disaster Artist, directed by and starring James Franco as Tommy Wiseau. Based on the book of the same name by Greg Sestero, this new movie is a dramatic comedy about the making of The Room, considered by many to be the “best worst” film ever made.

As always, the Cinemaholics also cover a host of Mini Reviews, starting with My Friend Dahmer, based on the graphic novel of the same name about notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer from the perspective of someone who knew him in high school. Elsewhere, Jon talks about the first two episodes of Runaways, a new Marvel original show on Hulu which definitely has some potential, as it centers around a group of high schoolers who find out their parents are super villains and inherit their powers.

Maveryke and Will, meanwhile, have a lot to say about Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, a new documentary from Netflix about the making of Man on the Moon, the biopic about the late comedian Andy Kaufman that starred Jim Carrey.

Later on, Jon and Will share their thoughts on The Man Who Invented Christmas, a new family friendly holiday flick about how Charles Dickens wrote The Christmas Carol and unexpectedly set up a new era of how people give during the season.

Finally, Jon discusseses his mixed thoughts on Roman J. Israel, Esq., the new legal drama starring Denzel Washington and written and directed by Dan Gilroy, who previously made the surprisingly fresh Nightcrawler.
