This week on CinemaJaw we take a walk on the wild side with Ali from The Reptile Den. And you know he didn’t come alone! Ali brings several of his slithering and crawling friends to meet Matt K. and Ry the Movie Guy. Will they get eaten? It’s a possibility.

Our guest, Ali, is a lifelong animal enthusiast who, growing up, idolized legendary conservationists like Jungle Jack Hannah, Steve Irwin, and more. He has made it his mission to carry forward the legacies of those heroes by inspiring and educating others about the crucial importance of protecting our planet’s diverse biodiversity. Using animal ambassadors, Ali creates immersive experiences that entertain and educate. He’s also a film fan, and hopes to get into the animal wrangling side of the production business. Ali knows his stuff about animals some would consider creepy crawlies and or dangerous creatures. He has his Top 5 all picked out!

In addition to that we have two reviews this week. The Kitchen, the directorial debut of past CinemaJaw guest and superstar Daniel Kaluuya, as well as a retro review of Eight Legged Freaks in honor of our guest.

Just remember to check the corners…
