The Hollywood Read ep. 69

This week we’re back on our bullshit, talking legendary cinematic flops and movies that killed whole genres. Join us for a conversation about terrible movies that failed horribly for our 69th episode (nice). Also, we update the latest in Oscar news as the Academy makes a probably, ultimately, pointless move to delay their ceremony in 2021.

The Hollywood Read ep. 68

This week we dive into copaganda and the insidious relationship between Hollywood and the military/police industrial complexes. We discuss police procedurals, war movies, and the effect of normalizing bad behavior by cops on TV. Join us for another dark AF episode!

The Hollywood Read ep. 67

This week we’re covering such terrible current events as the toxic breakdown of Cinestate, JK Rowling’s latest insanely bigoted tweets, and John Boyega worrying that anti-racist activism will end his career. Join us as we talk about all the ways in which the world is awful!

It’s been a horrible week and it’s only Tuesday! Here is a seventy minute breather full of entertainment stories, like the latest in DC Films and HBOMax, and dumb royal gossip. And when you’re done listening–or before you listen, or while you’re listening, we don’t know your life–here are a few links to check out to take action to support protesters and activists around the country.

The Hollywood Read ep. 65

After years of fans yelling online, the much speculated upon “Snyder Cut” of Justice League will be released in 2021. We break down details about how much work the Snyder Cut needs to be completed, and what constitutes a cut of the film. We also talk about Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, still scheduled for release in July, and what it will mean for movie theaters if audiences do or don’t show up. Join us as we return from hiatus and jump headfirst into one of the most toxic pools in movie fandom!

The Hollywood Read ep. 64

This week we examine the bookcase backgrounds of every celebrity Zoom appearance, since they are all filming in front of bookcases instead of showing off their celebrity quarantine pads. Then we talk the death of MTV Cribs and celebrity homes as conspicuous consumption, and the rise of the Architectural Digest home tour as low-key celebrity real estate video. Lastly, we discuss some of our favorite celebrity homes and castles, and the gossip stories that surround them.

The Hollywood Read ep. 63

We might be stuck inside, but that doesn’t mean the world slows down. Despite the shutdown, Hollywood is busy, and this week we’re running down a number of late news stories, including the semi-cancellation of the Cannes Film Festival, the on demand success of Trolls World Tour, the fate of The Hollywood Reporter, and Bob Iger’s return to power at Disney.
