Fabian's seen those bloody dinosaurs again, but in the age of the reboot/recycle/resequel is it now a sight of diminishing returns?

Apparently Hereditary (2018) was scary enough to scare people out of theatres! Worth pissing your pants over? Fabian reckons so. Your man down in Hollywood also refreshes our memories on the era of 1970s blaxploitation, and teaches Mike a thing or two via 1975's Dolemite.

It's a solo mission for real this morning. Speaking of which, Solo: A Star Wars Story was a great success and everyone can breathe a sigh of relief! There's a bit of wonder, a bit of adventure, some endearing character dynamics, and a whole lot of nostalgia. Something for everyone! You all owe an apology to Ehrenreich, you fiends.

We've been waiting with baited breath, and now, it's finally here. Fabian reviews Solo: A Star Wars Story. Is it any good? Or is 90% of Han's characterisation just based on Harrison Ford's charisma? Does multi-hyphenate genius Donald Glover deliver? And why were their only 9 people at last night's screening?? SO MANY QUESTIONS.

Fabian Fanboy's all giddy about Cobra Kai this week, mainly because it's based on The Karate Kid but even more-so because it has absolutely nothing to do with Jaden Smith. We also discuss the dawn of a new Rih-ligion, all inspired by the Catholic imagery of this year's Met Gala. It's been a big week for Hollywood.

Fabian can barely contain himself when it comes to talk of NZ's hottest new comedy hit The Breaker Upperers - and with packed cinemas and lines the length of Stewart Island making headlines worldwide, it's not hard to see why.

The Most Ambitious Crossover Event In History is being put to the ultimate test this week. No, I'm not talking about your filthy IMDb scores! And throw your Rotten Tomatoes in the bin, Jeremy! I'm talking about Fabian Fanboy's hotly-anticipated take on Marvel's latest (and greatest?), Avengers: Infinity War. But is it really all it's cracked up to be, you ask? Only one way to find out.

We cut in, we cut out, life goes on. Fabian's calling from the Hollywood Hills today, which makes for a rocky old landline chat about Disney's (semi-disappointing) A Wrinkle in Time and Marvel's The Avengers
