Thanks to Universal Pictures Australia, This Is Film has 5 double passes (ADMIT 2) to a special screening of Queen and Slim releasing in Australian cinemas Thursday March 12.
In the latest episode Shayne and Carlo make history by seeing the same film, granting them the prime opportunity to talk about Birds of Prey. Spoiler alert – both of them dug it. The guys also take some time to talk through the divide between critics and audiences, as they try to figure out why the gulf exists (or does it?). What are your thoughts?
Another week, another reason to talk about movies. Tribute is paid following the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant. Shayne talks about his surreal nautical experience watching The Lighthouse. Carlo expresses his excitement and disbelief in the ongoing insanity that is the Fast and Furious franchise. To close, the guys discuss which films they’re most excited about rolling into 2020.
Birds of Prey is simply, a euphoric and playful celebration of colour, femininity and sisterhood in a comic book world that’s mostly dominated by male characters and male perspectives.
