Hey all, and happy 2019! As part of our reflection on and appreciation of the last year, we have returned with our YEAR END WRAP UP! Why have we brought this most important and tedious of traditions? I dunno, just seemed like a good idea. So we took this episode to tell you, our listening audience, about some of our favorite music and movies from the past year   Liam’s Lists Music Tragedy- Fury Blood Orange- Negro Swan

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Overturned All My Expectations

It was with some humor that I first encountered the news that Sony was going to be releasing an animated Spider-Man film. The deal with Marvel had already gone through, and I knew some version of the webslinger would be making an appearance in the MCU. How many versions of Peter Parker do we need? Surely there is some saturation point for this one particular Marvel character. Yet here we are, almost a full year later, and not only has Peter Parker appeared in his latest live action incarnation, but Spider-Man: Homecoming was one of the more celebrated recent Marvel

Yes, your favorite degenerates of the cinema are back with a WINTER SPECTACULAR episode! What could be more Yule-tide appropriate than both of the Lady Snowblood Films?? Well maybe a few things, but these at least have “snow” in the name! Best to address the gorilla in the room right up front: YES, THIS EPISODE HAS SOUND ISSUES! This was a recording issue, mine actually, and our intrepid editor tried valiantly to restore the sound to something tolerable, and while he did a

Rekt: THE GREAT SILENCE

This is REKT, the column where each month one Cinepunx staffer recommends films to the rest of the fam. We may be stoked, or we may be wrecked. This month, it’s Joe Yanick’s turn to do the damage. Editor in Chief Liam O’Donnell here with his thoughts on The Great Silence.  That moment when our hero seems to have no hope, to truly be in dire straits, and any number of endearing and possibly ridiculous side characters shows up and saves them? I love that moment. The side kick, it turns out, is not dead; or the other village will

Welcome one and all to another ridiculous and wonderous episode of the good ole CINEPUNX!! Friends, this is a bit of a strange episode. We had planned and prepared for a very specific topic for a very specific guest, and due to an emergency that guest had to cancel. It happens. So we could discuss that topic without them, we could cancel, or we could soldier forward and just shoot the proverbial shit. So that is what we did. We talked, we shared our WACK

Rekt: THE NINTH CONFIGURATION

This is REKT, the column where each month one Cinepunx staffer recommends films to the rest of the fam. We may be stoked, or we may be wrecked. This month, it’s Trey Lawson’s turn to do the damage. Here are Liam‘s thoughts on The Ninth Configuration. I have what many have told me is an irrational fondness for The Exorcist II: The Heretic. It is a wild, weird, and maybe ultimately unsuccessful film. I saw it when I was young and I am probably blinded by nostalgia, I admit it. Still, it charms me with its utter strangeness, and I assume it is this
