What a humdinger of a week we have had. To try and keep our minds off the terrible things happening around the world, Christopher Cross and Dylan Schwan went and watched a ton of movies for this week’s podcast. The big one is of course, Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival. Starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker, this is a science fiction film for the ages and we discuss why it works so damn well. Is this Amy Adams’s best performance? Does this hold any relevance with today’s political climate? And where does this rank with Villeneuve’s past efforts? All of these and more are answered this week.
However, we have so much more to discuss. Dylan saw Trolls and Dog Eat Dog, while Chris watched Mascots and a short film entitled Shame. But more importantly we both saw The Monster and Moonlight, both of which we discuss is pretty great detail. 2016 is almost over and we are clearly diving headfirst into the films its given us. There’s also plenty of news as always and some blu-ray releases to discuss (like Finding Dory which we did a podcast on almost twenty podcasts ago).
Next week, we’re revisiting the world of Harry Potter with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
