"Elvis"

2022-06-2501:39:01

For this week's main podcast review, I am joined by Josh Parham, Eve O'Dea, Dan Bayer & Will Mavity. Together, we're reviewing the latest film from director Bay Luhrmann, "Elvis," starring Austin Butler and Tom Hanks. The film is your typical musical biopic but with the glamour, style, and bombastic filmmaking from Luhrmann with a breakout performance from Butler and a polarizing performance from Hanks. Needless to say, opinions are all over the place on this one. But where do we land? What did we think of the presentation, performances, costumes, makeup, editing, and story? Please find out by taking a listen to our review down below and enjoy! Thank you! Check out more on NextBestPicture.com Please subscribe on...

Jeremy Podeswa has been working in television for over twenty years now, working on hit shows such as "Broadwalk Empire, "Game Of Thrones," and "The Handmaid's Tale." This year he directed three episodes of the HBO Miniseries "Station Eleven," including the final two episodes. Based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Emily St. John Mandel, the show stars Mackenzie Davis, Himesh Patel, Matilda Lawler, David Wilmot, Nabhaan Rizwan, Daniel Zovatto, Philippine Velge. It depicts the collapse of civilization following a flu pandemic with obvious real-world connections to today. Jeremy was kind enough to spend some time talking about his work on the show, which is up for your consideration for Outstanding Directing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. We hope you enjoy the conversation and that you will check out the show now streaming on HBO Max. Thank you. Check out more on NextBestPicture.com Please subscribe on...

If you ask most people which television series from 2022 was the breakout new show of the year, they will probably say Dan Erickson's "Severance." Sean one premiered on AppleTV+ on February 18th with the week-to-week episodes directed by Ben Stiller and Aoife McArdle. It received critical acclaim for its writing, performances by the ensemble, and immersion into its world and concept. Many talented people worked on this show to bring it to life, and we're proud to showcase their work in this series of podcast interviews. For your consideration this Emmy season, we have Composer Theodore Shapiro, Production Designers Jeremy Hindle, Nick Francone & Cinematographer Jessica Lee Gagné, all of whom helped to make the show as memorable as it's been.

"Cha Cha Real Smooth" premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received a warm reception and was later picked up by Apple. It is now streaming on AppleTV+ where thousands of people are getting the opportunity to see the acclaimed follow-up film from Cooper Raiff, co-starring Dakota Johnson in what many are calling her best performance to date. Like his directorial debut "Shithouse," Cooper Raiff wrote, directed, acted, and produced the film, imbuing it with his own style and voice, which is clearly speaking to many people. Cooper was kind enough to spend a few minutes talking with us about the film from multiple sides of production. We hope you enjoy the conversation. Thank you!

Based on the movie the character Andy saw in 1995, which inspired him to want a Buzz Lightyear action figure (we know, we know), the film is Pixar's first foray into the world of science-fiction as Buzz goes on an adventure that will take him to infinity and beyond.

"Good Luck To You, Leo Grande" premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and was later picked up by Searchlight Pictures, who released it this weekend on Hulu. The film stars Emma Thompson in one of her best roles to date as Nancy, a middle-aged retired woman looking for good sex at this point in her life, and Daryl McCormack in a breakout turn as her hired young sex-worker, Leo Grande. Both of them deliver terrific performances and are aided by the thoughtful writing from screenwriter Katy Brand. The sex-positive story carefully outlines both characters with a high level of detail, providing an insightful analysis of sex and the relationship the two share with one another. Katy was kind enough to talk with us about her screenplay, the characters, the hotel setting they share, and more. Please be sure to check out the film, now streaming on Hulu, and have a listen down below and enjoy. Thank you! Check out more on NextBestPicture.com Please subscribe on...

A major Oscar contender on paper due to the musical's pedigree in the world of Broadway, the film achieved financial success at the box office while critical reception was more mixed.

"The Phantom Of The Open" tells the unlikely true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a British golfer who, with no prior experience, managed to sneak his way into the pros and received the worst score ever recorded at the Open Championship. His determination to keep on playing and improve made him an inspiring figure for many to this day. Director Craig Roberts ("Tolkien") and screenwriter Simon Farnaby ("Paddington 2") came together to tell his story, and they do it with precision, liveliness, and delight. Both of them were kind enough to spend time talking about how they came across the project, working with Mark Rylance and Sally Hawkins, what they hope audiences will take away from Maurice's story, and more.

I absolutely love this podcast, but I wish they would talk more about what SHOULD win the Oscars and not what will win. Also, they thought the 3 Billboards screenplay was a mess, but they loved Wonder Woman? WTF?
