Lady Bird

Welcome back, everyone! We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday binge-a-thon!

But now that the turkey leftovers are finally gone and winter has decided to finally engulf the majority of the nation, it’s time to get back to work.

And so, after a well-deserved break, here we are, discussing writer/actress Greta Gerwig’s

Lady Bird

A coming-of-age story set in 2002 Sacramento, California, Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan as Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson, and Laurie Metcalf as her over-powering mother, Marion.

This film is completing its wide-release roll-out this weekend, after achieving an unbelievable 100% “Fresh” rating from Rotten Tomatoes.

Does it deserve that incredible number?

Let’s find out.

Justice League

Welcome back, everyone, to the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast. This time out, we’re on to the second potential Fall/Winter season blockbuster:

Justice League

DC and Warner Brothers are trying to build on the phenomenal success of the stand-alone Wonder Woman.

Can Batman/Bruce Wayne successfully unite this disparate group of heroes to battle the evil Steppenwolf? Can Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg save Superman and save the planet from obliteration?

(By the way: isn’t the planet in imminent danger of obliteration in all these superhero movies?)

I get the feeling we’re not all going to agree on this one, if history is any indication….

Murder on the Orient Express

Welcome back, everyone! We’re still recovering from the blockbuster weekend that was Thor: Ragnarok (listen to our review of that HERE), and it’s time to move on to this weekend’s cinematic heavyweight,

Murder on the Orient Express

With a star-studded cast including Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Judi Dench, Willem Dafoe, Michelle Pfieffer, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom, Jr., and Penelope Cruz, Hollywood has bet big on this adaptation of one of Agatha Christie’s most popular works.

Can also-director Branagh keep such a wide-ranging cast contained, much like their cinematic counterparts are contained on the titular train? Or will the vastness of the cast escape his control?

All aboard!

Be warned: we take a tangent into some dark places in Hollywood as we talk about the upcoming awards season.
