Cinema Royale: Talking ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F’ And The Best Movies Of 2024 So Far

Breakdown, takedown, shakedown, you’re busted! On the latest episode of Cinema Royale, the heat is on as I’m joined by the biggest Beverly Hills Cop fan I know,‘s Chris Bumbray, to talk about Eddie Murphy’s return in Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F!

Plus, I’m recording this episode on July 4th, so I’m sporting one of many Captain America-themed shirts even though this is no time to feel patriotic. But also, it means we’re past the halfway point in 2024, and so Chris and I discuss our picks for the best movies of the year so far! Turns out we’ve got the mind meld thing going on.

We also discuss Chris’ once in a lifetime interview with Eddie Murphy about Axel F, our lack of parental supervision growing up, and our mutual love of Vanessa Hudgens.

All of this and more on a new episode of Cinema Royale, which you can find anywhere that you get podcasts.
