Ep. 80- Nope (2022) & the 5 Best Alien Invasion movies Nope has landed! Jordan Peele&apos;s third feature film, but does it live up to the hype? Claira and I discussed our initial *spoiler-free* reactions to the movie and where it lands in the Peele filmography. Then in the second half of the podcast, we discussed our 5 favorite alien invasion movies. The keyword is &quot;invasion&quot; which automatically disqualifies all of the Alien movies (and also we didn&apos;t count E.T.)Thanks to everyone who has been listening and be sure to drop a review and rating!Follow us on social media:Claira:LetterboxdJoe:LetterboxdTikTokInstagram

Ep. 76- The 5 Best Movies of 2022 so far... We are officially halfway through 2022, which has been a roller coaster of a year in the world of film. While we have received some genre-defining movies, we also have had our fair share of not-so-great movies. In this episode, I am joined by fellow film connoisseur Sydney to discuss our top movies in 2022 thus far. While I am sure you expect an extensive conversation about The Bubble and Morbius, sadly, they were too good even for our lists.

Ep. 75- Everything Everywhere All At Once & Top 5 A24 Movies After many months of teasing a discussion about arguably the best movie of the year, Claira and I are finally getting a chance to discuss the greatness that is Everything Everywhere All At Once. Why does it work? Where it will land in movie history? Oscar Odds? And then we attempt the impossible, listing out the Top 5 A24 movies. Some choices are obvious, others may surprise you!Follow us on social media!Claira: LetterboxdJoe: LetterboxdTikTokInstagram
Ep. 74- Top Gun: Maverick and the Top 5 Tom Cruise movies Top Gun: Maverick is here and let&apos;s just say, we are very excited to talk about it. I am joined by long-time friend and guest of the podcast, Nate Spencer, to discuss if Top Gun: Maverick lives up to expectations and what it means for future blockbusters. In the second half of the episode, we discussed the 5 best Tom Cruise performances. Obviously, number 1 and 2 will go to Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder and Cruise&apos;s performance in Austin Powers.

Ep. 73- The Top 5 Star Wars projects May is unofficially Star Wars month and with the upcoming release of Kenobi, what better time than to rank the Top 5 Star Wars projects? It just so happens that among Claira&apos;s vast knowledge of all things film, they are also a Star Wars enthusiast, putting my knowledge to shame. Nonetheless, we both ranked our 5 favorite Star Wars projects- movies or shows were up for grabs, but not books since there are over 300 of them.

Ep. 72- 10 Movies If You Need a Good Cry If there is one thing Claira and I are good at, it&apos;s crying during a movie. So we each picked our 5 favorite movies that make us cry the hardest and discussed what aspects of the movie cause us to sob uncontrollably. Some picks are a little more obvious, and some you might be surprised by. But if there&apos;s one thing I can safely guarantee, if you&apos;ve been searching for movies to give you a guaranteed good cry, look no further!Follow Claira on social media!LetterboxdTikTokFollow Joe on social media!LetterboxdTikTokInstagram
