‘The Bikeriders’ review: Is this bumpy ride still worth taking?

Every week, Kristopher Pollard from Milwaukee Film and Radio Milwaukee’s Dori Zori talk about movies — because that’s what you do when you’re Cinebuds.

You can count on a couple things happening regularly here on Cinebuds:

  1. One of our hosts will not be able/forget to squeeze a viewing of that week’s movie into their demanding schedule.
  2. A guest will join the podcast with very specific knowledge of the subject matter from said movie.

This episode has a heaping helping of both, with the second item taking the form of Radio Milwaukee visual magician extraordinaire Jen Ellis. When she’s not shooting awesome photos and creating kick-ass graphics, Jen is an avid motorcycle rider. And even when she is doing her shutterbug/design thing, she remains a Chicago native.

These pieces of life experience came in very handy for our discussion about The Bikeriders, a film that heavily involves both motorcycles and the Windy City. PLUS, it’s based on a book of photography, yet another of Jen’s passions. Does this make her the most qualified pinch-hitter in Cinebuds history? You can decide for yourself by listening to the episode.

You’ll also hear what everyone thought about The Bikeriders — well, almost everyone. They also discuss what modern biker culture is like (in Jen’s experience anyway), the vintage cycles and style in the film, and how accurately the actors deliver their Chicago accents.
