Trivia: “Action” and “Point” movie Trivia

No hero is ever truly complete without the sidekick. A good sidekick softens and rounds out a hero character and provides a layer of accessibility. At best a sidekick is as indispensable to the hero as they are to the story, at worst they are a punchline. This week on CinemaJaw the lads examine the best sidekicks in film, and we aren’t talking vintage cell phones.

Joining us is a name that will be familiar to JawHeads.  Neal Edelstein is an award-winning independent film producer, writer
and director. With productions credits on films like Mulholland Drive and The Ring, Neal is a heavy hitter in the industry and just a guy who loves to talk movies! He always has something cooking, and Matt and Ry do their best to drag some details out.
