Weekly Recap: The Trial of the Chicago 7, Love And Monsters, Black Bear & More!

It takes some time to put all these links together (not counting the time it takes to, y'know, write all these reviews). That said, I keep debating how conversational I want to make this portion of the recap. As it stands, I mainly want to point out that I've written 100 reviews within the "In-House Reviews" column alone, meaning that there's plenty of movies available for all to see, mostly via varying streaming services. Sure, it's a different kind of year for obvious reason, but if you're reading this with the intent of finding movies to watch, you can find links to read about so many different options.

With that in mind, this week brings in a new Aaron Sorkin movie (The Trial of the Chicago 7), a new Woody Allen movie (A Rainy Day in New York), a creature feature (Love and Monsters), plenty of horror films, and more. Plus, our latest horror podcast, where we talked all about Arachnophobia in honor of its 30th anniversary. Additionally, there are more podcasts we put together, including our episode covering a couple more horror movies, The Wolf of Snow Hollow and Possessor. Finally, there are my various essays lists, and new trailers to dig into as well. Enjoy, stay safe out there, and thanks for reading!
