This week on The Collider Podcast, we're covering two topics. In the first half of the show, we look ahead to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. We talk about why Sundance is such a special festival and we each go through our five most-anticipated films playing at this year's fest. After that, we move on to talk about Martin Scorsese's Silence, how the film is being misunderstood, its struggle to find an audience, why Scorsese is such an impressive director, and more.
This week on The Collider Podcast, we're talking about La La Land. Without mentioning spoilers, we talk about our reaction to the film, the audience reaction when it played at TIFF last year, the backlash to the film's success in the awards race, the backlash to the backlash, why the film is so appealing, and much more.
This week on The Collider Podcast, we look ahead at the major films of 2017. It's a super-sized episode as we run though all of the major releases, give our predictions for what will be the biggest films of the year, talk about our most-anticipated features, and much more. Just as a side-note, since this episode was already running long, we didn't dig too much into indie features coming out in 2017, but we will certainly discuss those in a future episode.
