Where to Find Us/LEAVE US A 5* REVIEW! - 1:12:20 What’s Next/Words of Wisdom - 1:13:40 You get a raw, emotional review of Pixar’s Luca from a very Italian Also Mike for the first 10 minutes that even if you disagree, brings up a substantive offshoot of the conversation about one of our most relied upon forms of film appreciation, the Tomato-meter. Then it’s finally time to really dive into the spring box office, and suffice it to say, we’re very worried. We talk about some historical June numbers, discuss some of the mitigating factors, have several rants about various release strategies, and yeah, we cannot help but wonder why more film pros aren’t concerned. So it’s us being worry warts (we hope) in the first half before we can find some reasons for more optimism in the second. That’s where film festivals enter the conversation as we have some exciting news from Venice with Dune, Telluride re: Barry Jenkins, and then with Cannes and a certain french wild man making another wild ass movie. Finally, as if the tension / relief and the mood swings of the episode finally take their toll, we get especially weird and goofy during the trailer thoughts portion of the show. Some of that is due to the fact that Nicolas Cage is starring in a movie called “Pig.” But other reasons include Andrew Garfield, more Andrew Garfield, great & terrible face make-up, and the fact that neither of us knows enough about action movie history. So what do you think of all these intense swings of feeling? Do you agree, and are you panicking with us? Should we be talked down? Let us know.
