This week on The Collider Podcast, we're making up for a our two-week hiatus by talking about 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2' and 'Creed'. When it comes to 'The Hunger Games', we look over what made this a unique series, a game-changer in franchise films when it comes to female leads, why 'Part 2' is a fascinating film despite its flaws, and more. When it comes to 'Creed', we talk about the Rocky franchise, the many strengths of Ryan Coogler's spinoff/sequel, and then go on a bit of a tangent where we lament WB's awards strategy for the film (or lack thereof).
This week on The Collider Podcast, we're talking about film criticism. Looking over the comments in our iTunes reviews, we noticed the recurring theme of "too harsh", which leads Adam and Matt into a discussion about what it means to review a film, how to review a film honestly, the position of film criticism in the modern media landscape, how to be a better critic, how opinions change over time, and much more.
Also, we still want your feedback! What would you like to hear us talk about aside from the latest movie news or release of the week? Sound off in the comments section. Finally, if you like the podcast, please take a couple minutes to give us a good review in iTunes Podcasts. It's a small thing that can make a big difference.
This week on The Collider Podcast, we look at the newest James Bond film, Spectre. We talk about the film's flaws, why it doesn't hold up next to Skyfall, the problem with Bond, the franchise's strengths and weaknesses, what they'll need to do going forward, and more. Also, recommendations are back!
This week, we look at Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs'. Much like the film, we've decided to break it down into three parts--we discuss the film itself, we discuss why it flopped at the box office, and we consider its Oscar prospects, which ends up leading to a discussion about which studios have the strongest films remaining for the rest of 2015.
