Patreon subscribers! We can hardly believe that August is almost over! We’ve had another busy month covering lots of new and upcoming releases and chatting with folk who worked on them, which we hope you’ve been enjoying.

We also opened pitches and donations this month for Issue 6 of our digital magazine and you can find all the details here. We’re taking a slightly different approach for this issue, as you can see, and our hope is this will lead us to be able to commission more pieces for it and hopefully raise our rates slightly. The next issue will be released on December 1st and we would love it if you could share the page with anyone who you think may be interested in supporting us.


Throughout August we published 28 reviews in total. We’ve selected some below for you to check out, but you can find all our reviews right here.

Next month’s new releases we’ll be covering include Annette, Wildfire, Respect, Malignant, Gunpowder Milkshake, Prisoners of the Ghostlands, The Many Saints of Newark and, not to jinx it, No Time To Die. We also have the second of four Marvel films out this year heading our way this week with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Last month we kicked off a new series on YouTube – JumpChat. Our aim with this series is to provide short (20 minutes-ish) videos featuring two people just chatting about a film, series, franchise, or other subject.

We’d love to get you involved in in future episodes – so we may put call outs on Patreon from time to time to see who would be interested – but we’re also open to you sliding into our DMs if you’ve got an idea for an episode in mind!



This month we’ve had the privilege to chat with composers, costume designers. makeup artists, stuntmen, writers, and cinematographers – some of which are nominated at this year’s Emmys!
