Weekly Recap: Pacific Rim Uprising, Isle of Dogs, Unsane & More!


This week is all about giant robots and the love of dogs. Pacific Rim Uprising opens as the latest blockbuster attempt to dethrone Black Panther from the top of the list and it's certainly plausible after 6 weeks. Regardless, John Boyega leads a fun enough sequel. Meanwhile, Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs opens in select theaters, which is sure to be a joy for many. Steven Soderbergh is also back with a new thriller he shot on an iPhone. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle comes home this week and I have a review for that Blu-ray. Best of all - lists and more. I go over giant robots, great SXSW premieres, Deadpool 2 and more. And lastly, we have a fun podcast up for everyone to listen to as well. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(A slight but enjoyable sequel)

(Wes Anderson delivers again)

(Soderbergh goes for a genre thriller on iPhone)

Out Now Nights 15: Annihilation Now - Redux


This episode of Out Now Nights (“Nights”) finds Aaron and Abe going over even more thoughts on the film Annihilation. Now that Abe has had a chance to see the film and Aaron has had more time to think about it, the guys decided it would be good to go into a more spoiler-focused conversation about what the Alex Garland film was trying to get at. Additionally, there is also time to discuss the acclaimed FX series Atlanta and why it’s one of the best shows on TV. Plus, a full conversation about why Brigsby Bear is a special little film. Plus some talk of recent releases and more.

Out Now Bonus: 2018 Oscar Special Part 2 - Results and What Else Happened?


And now for how it all went. Out Now with Aaron and Abe is back with a follow-up show addressing what went down at the 90th Academy Awards. Aaron and Abe have gotten back together to go over the Oscar results and more, with guests Mark Hobin, Maxwell Haddad and the lovely Ana Bosch, which is always a lot of fun.  The group learns who among them scored the best, discusses the ceremony as a whole and whether not it was one of the more memorable ones, and also take into account the nature of the winners, regardless of how predictable it all ended up being.  It makes for a lot of interesting conversation, even if there was a bit of a letdown in terms of big surprises to really dig into. Still, enjoy what the group has to say about Hollywood's biggest night.

Out Now Bonus: 2018 Oscar Special Part 1 – Predictions and Hopes


It is another exhilarating time for Out Now with Aaron and Abe, as the 90th Academy Awards will be airing this Sunday and we are wondering how it will all go down.  As usual, Aaron and Abe have put together the annual Oscar Predictions show, with guests Mark Hobin, Maxwell Haddad and the lovely Ana Bosch, which is always a lot of fun, as the group is very competitive when it comes to picking the potential winners.  The gang also discusses who they believe should win and delve into why things may happen the way they do.  It makes for a lot of interesting conversation, but once again shows that these guys do not joke around come Oscar time…well, they do, but in the spirit of the ceremony.

90th Academy Awards: Predictions And My Somewhat Researched Insight


With only a few days left until the 90th Academy Awards, it’s time to go into my predictions. As usual, some categories have obvious picks, a few are even safe bets, but a good portion of this race is still mostly up in the air. I try to keep track of the awards season and get a feel for what films seem to have earned their way to Oscar glory, but it is never an exact science. This has been one of the more unpredictable races in some time due to a lack of a clear frontrunner, even if The Shape of Water does have 13 nominations. That said, I have laid out all the categories, with some thoughts on what might be happening come Oscar night.
