Episode #235: Reminiscence

August 25, 2021

Welcome everyone to the Reel Film Nerds podcast! Today Matt and Mike break down a trippy sci-fi noir film Reminiscence starring Hugh Jackman and Thandiwe Newton. Topics more interesting than this film include CRS, The Office, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ concerts.

There is not a whole lot to say about Reminiscence. It is not only difficult to discuss without spoiling the movie but it is also a really long and at times boring film. There are a lot of great concepts at work here. Wonderful world building, a modern-ish noir, and Hugh Jackman acting his ass off. In the end though Reminiscence just doesn’t deliver. It is not a horrible movie but it’s not a great one either. Matt thinks Reminiscence is worth a watch if you have HBO Max and nothing else is on. He awards the film an average rating of 3 out of 5 Reels. Mike on the other hand really did not like this movie and can’t recommend you to waste your time on it. He gives Reminiscence 2 out of 5 Reels.       

It’s here, it’s finally here!! Candyman (2021) is hitting the theaters August 27 after a more than a year hiatus, and Mike and Matt will be there! Who else is excited for Jordan Peele’s sequel to a horror classic?  Thank you for your continued support of our podcast and we will chat at you next week.
