2012 was a fantastic year for film. So much so that I wrote a Top 40 list instead of last year’s 20, and pretty much everything from 25 and up could easily be in a top 10 had they come out any other, less crowded year. That good.

So Corey Atad is a cool guy who you should be following on the twitter if you aren’t already. Anyway, he has a podcast too. Who would’ve thunk it? And he was talking about Cloud Atlas so I was like, “Sure, why not?”
Long story short, if you want to hear me, Corey, and the also great Kristen Sales (Who you should also be following on twitter) having a long, two hour discussion of Cloud Atlas, then this is the right place. If you wanna listen to the episode, do it through his site right on this link. He deserves the traffic. Or you could just subscribe to/download the podcast right here. Whatever floats your boat.

In today’s episode of the CinEffect podcast, Chris & Alex dive into the various layers of Cloud Atlas. Does it really succeed in its lofty ambitions? Also being discussed: Silent Hill Revelation 3D is terrible, The Innkeepers is surprisingly effective old-school horror, and Hotline Miami is an adrenaline rush of a game. Oh, and Chris’s voice sounds like God for some weird reason.
