The Bad and The Beautiful: Conversations on Cinema


Feb 22, 2019

On this episode of The Bad and the Beautiful, we play some Motorball and place some Oscar bets.

We begin by discussing ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, the sci-fi blockbuster adaptation of the popular manga series, from producer James Cameron and director Robert Rodriguez.

Then, Jeff compares and contrasts two February animated releases: HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD, the third and final film in the series, and THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART.

That’s followed with our look at 3-time Academy Award nominee COLD WAR (Foreign Language, Director, Cinematography), from Oscar-winning IDA director Paweł Pawlikowski

And in the 2nd half of the episode, Charles and Jeff take a look back at the toxic Awards Season, a look now at where things stand, and a look ahead to who may win Hollywood’s biggest prize.
