Are You Screening Podcast – Aquaman, A Star Is Born & More

We’re trying to catch up as award season officially moves into high gear, and this week we’re looking at Aquaman, A Star is Born, and more.

We also look at The Golden Globes, and the wins that set the internet on fire.

The awards actually set us up for our look at these films, because the trend of odd appreciation continues through to, at least, the first two films we cover. Aquaman is certainly making money, and director James Wan has much to say about the film not receiving a visual effects nomination, but it didn’t deliver for us.

A Star is Born pulled us in a lot of directions, and we didn’t exactly agree on the film’s overall merits. Whatever the final assessment might be, it’s a film that had positives and negatives piling up every which way. The result is that it’s hard to hate everything, and rather understandable if those less jaded than ourselves enjoyed it.

Give us a listen below and remember to share, subscribe, and otherwise trick your friends into listening to us!
