Robert Winfree and Mark Radulich present their The Creator 2023 Movie Review!
The Creator is a 2023 American science fiction film produced and directed by Gareth Edwards, who co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Weitz. The film stars John David Washington, Gemma Chan, Ken Watanabe, Sturgill Simpson, Allison Janney, and Madeleine Yuna Voyles (in her film debut). After a nuclear detonation in Los Angeles and a war against artificial intelligence, an ex-special forces agent is recruited to hunt down and kill the “Creator”, who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war.
Development began in November 2019 when Edwards signed on to direct and write an untitled science fiction project for New Regency and was officially announced in February 2020. He cited Apocalypse Now (1979), Baraka (1992), Blade Runner (1982), Akira (1988), Rain Man (1988), The Hit (1984), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) and Paper Moon (1973) as this film’s sources of inspiration. Filming began on January 17, 2022 and wrapped on May 30, 2022.
The Creator was released in the United States on September 29, 2023, by 20th Century Studios. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, with many praising its visual effects, direction, performances and its approach to the subject matter, although some criticized the screenplay.

About Damn You Hollywood
It started out as just a series of summer blockbuster reviews. Since then, it has grown to a nearly weekly movie review show. Robert Winfree and Mark Radulich take on the big-budget studio films and animated features that have of late migrated out of the summer season and have dotted the calendar almost all year long. Winfree and Radulich critique all of the elements of the movie, but that’s not all. They discuss THE MONEY i.e. budgets, did it open #1, projected worldwide gross, etc. Lastly, the duo criticizes the critics. Radulich reads selected bits from Rotten Tomatoes and Winfree attempts not to have an aneurysm. It’s fun for the whole family.

About Radulich in Broadcasting’s Beginnings
Mark Radulich has been an internet personality since 2004 with his Progressive Conservatism blog. He then took that blog to the airwaves and created a podcast for it. It then changed to PC Live. After that, he brought out the 411mania Ground and Pound Radio as well.
Also, Mark would partner up with another 411mania alum, Sean Comer, to create the movie franchise review podcast Long Road to Ruin and then Robert Cooper to create the metal album review podcast, The Metal Hammer of Doom. Robert Winfree then added his own podcast, Everybody Loves a Bad Guy. That’s when the Radulich in Broadcasting Network was born. Joining Winfree in having their own podcasts were super fan Jesse Starcher (Source Material). Finally, Winfree and Radulich added a weekly movie review show to the ever-growing lists of podcasts on the Network called Damn You Hollywood.
Mark and Robert fell into the movie review thing almost by accident. They’d gotten together a couple of times to discuss particularly divisive movies and discovered that his love of big-budget blockbusters both complimented and clashed with Robert’s perspectives, plus they both genuinely enjoy talking movies with each other. What started out as a summer exclusive series has now expanded to a near year-round almost weekly outing because they enjoy talking movies with each other so much. Robert also hosts the 411 Ground and Pound Radio, while also guest hosting on other shows on the RIBN network when possible.
