Episode notes


It’s ‘Dune’ week here at Maximum Film, and we inhaled this movie like some sort of addictive spice. We tackle the most scintillating topics in this film, like the sexual chemistry between mother and son Rebecca Ferguson and Timothée Chalamet. Plus, we have another installment of the ‘Christmas Movie Minute.’ And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Ice Cube exits his latest film because he doesn’t want to get vaccinated, A24 is streaming their new docu-series ‘The Beach’ on a continuous loop, and Marvel’s ‘Eternals’ is not getting the best reviews.

Buy Alonso’s book – I’ll Be Home for Christmas Movies

Staff Picks:
Ify – Ex Machina
Drea – Spencer
Alonso – David Lynch’s Dune

With Ify Nwadiwe, Drea Clark, and Alonso Duralde.
