On episode 229 of The AwardsWatch Podcast, Executive Editor Ryan McQuade is joined by AwardsWatch Editor-In-Chief Erik Anderson and Associate Editor Sophia Ciminello to review Luca Guadagnino’s latest film Challengers, and then discuss their favorite sexiest/horniest films.

Releasing this past weekend was one of the best reviewed films of the year so far, Challengers, which was supposed to come out last year but was delayed because of the SAG/WGA strikes. In his follow-up to 2022’s Bones and All, Luca Guadagnino’s tennis love triangle became the number one film at the box office, and had the AW team talking about it all week long. Ryan, Erik, and Sophia break down their overall reactions to the film, its excellent performances from its all-star cast, the innovated editing, fist-pumping score from Reznor and Ross, and of course, the hot, sexual tension at the core of this incredible film. Listen to their spoilers be damned review as well as read Josh Parham’s written review of the film on the website.

After they are done talking about Challengers, the gang transition into a conversation about their favorite films that they find sexy and/or horny. In trying to go within the vein of Challengers tone, they talked about some great films that not only just had sex scenes, but the feeling of falling in love, longing for the person they want to be it, as well as repressing one’s love and how tragic that can feel. There are also just some obvious picks that are just straight up horny fun. Included into the conversation was Out of Sight, Don’t Look Now, Wet Hot American Summer, Brokeback Mountain, Y tu mamá también, In the Mood for Love, Moonlight, Bull Durham, The Age of Innocence, and more.
