Cinema Royale: We’re Back And We’ve Got A Lot Of Catching Up To Do!

How long has it been since the last episode of Cinema Royale? Pretty sure the last thing we talked about was No Time to Die. But now we’re back and playing catch up, talking everything from Dune to Ghostbusters: Afterlife! Plus, we discuss this awards season and why critics suck, an annual conversation to be fair, along with reviews of Bruised, House of Gucci, and Encanto!

All of this and more! You can subscribe to Cinema Royale wherever you get your podcasts! Follow the Punch Drunk Critics and Cinema Royale!
