    For this week's main podcast review, I am joined by Josh Parham & Dan Bayer. Together we're reviewing the newest film from Nicholas Stoller, "Bros," starring Billy Eichner, Luke Macfarlane, Harvey Fierstein, Ts Madison, Monica Raymund, Guillermo Díaz, Guy Branum, Amanda Bearse, Jim Rash & Bowen Yang. The first major studio film with an all-gay cast, the romantic comedy, written by Stoller and Eichner, is making history and knows it too as it presents a modern rom-com that understands the LGBTQ+ history that came before it and what will hopefully come after its release. What did we think of the characters, the writing, the jokes, and how it portrays gay romantic relationships? Please take a listen down below and enjoy!

    "God's Creatures" is the first time filmmakers and frequent collaborators Sales Davis and Anna Rose Holmer share directorial credit on a film. Following their previous film, "The Fits," the duo are one of the most exciting pairs working in the field today, and that continues with this psychological drama that premiered earlier this year at Cannes. Davis and Rose Holmer were kind enough to talk with us about directing the three main performances from Emily Watson, Paul Mescal, and Aisling Franciosi, how much of a vital role sound plays in the film, and what they have coming up next.

Each has been released to critical acclaim, but "Nope" may be the composer's most ambitious work yet, combining elements from the horror, sci-fi, and western genres to create a soundscape that is unshakable as it leaves a lasting impact on you as you walk out of the theater. Michael was kind enough to return to the podcast (we previously interviewed him for "Us") to talk about his work on the film, working with Peele, what he has coming up next (an opera!?), and more!

    For Episode 304, I am joined by Josh Parham. Last week we did a deep-dive preview into what we thought would be announced for TIFF this week, but that announcement was moved to early August (except for one shockingly big addition to the lineup this week). So, today, we're doing one final preview for Venezia 79, discussing what went down at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), including a ton of trailers shown at the event. Those trailer reactions include "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," "Halloween Ends," "Shazam! Fury Of The Gods," "Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves," "John Wick: Chapter 4" & "Breaking." We also go over the polls, answer your fan-submitted questions, and more! We hope you enjoy this week's show.

    For this week's main podcast review, I am joined by Josh Parham, Eve O'Dea, Daniel Howat & guest Destiny Jackson. Together, we're reviewing the latest film from Jordan Peele, "Nope," starring Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Brandon Perea & Michael Wincott. Following the success of his last two films, "Get Out" and "Us," Academy Award-winner Jordan Peele is now setting his sight towards the sky for a big-screen spectacle you have to experience with the largest screen and most immersive sound you can find. While Peele's ability to tell original stories in the horror genre on this kind of scale is welcome, what did we think of the characters and story? Tune in below as we discuss the humor, scares, and thrills of his latest in our SPOILER-FILLED review. Thank you. Enjoy! Check out more on NextBestPicture.com Please subscribe on...
