The Hollywood Read ep. 35

With the summer movie season winding down, we take a look back at the winners and losers of blockbuster season, which is mostly “Disney”, and “everyone else”. And we look ahead to TIFF, and the non-blockbusters that will, hopefully, garner SOME box office in the five seconds Disney doesn’t have a movie coming out. We also dive into Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, and debate is effectiveness and that controversial ending. Spoilers ahoy!

The Hollywood Read ep. 32

Leonardo DiCaprio is currently starring in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, so now is the time to take a look at his career and the almost 30 whole years he has spent as a famous person. Jumping off that article in The Hollywood Reporter, which posits DiCaprio as the last true Movie Star, we discuss why he really isn’t that adventurous, why his fame game is boring, and his scientifically proven aversion to women his own age. But first! We also go over the films announced for TIFF and Venice, including new films from Marielle Heller and Taika Waititi.
