Filmlosopher Chad Riley welcomes back frequent collaborator Hannah Porter to hash through the ups and downs of the 2017 Academy Awards show. Who won, who lost, and who saw that ending coming? Whether you’re in Camp Moonlight or Camp La La Land, you surely felt all the feels. Not to mention all of the subtle and not-so-sly political references, an odd interruption from a group of Hollywood tourists, and various confections from the sky. In other words, there was a lot to love (or hate) this year.
News items include opening weekend feedback for Jordan Peele’s cautionary horror flick Get Out (2017) and a xenomorphic trailer reveal from director Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant (2017).
