Blinded By The Light Review

#PopcornTalk #BlindedByTheLight #AnatomyofAMovie
Javed is a Pakistani teenager who experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England, in 1987. He writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father. When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteeen, Javed sees parallels between the singer’s powerful lyrics and his own working-class environment. Springsteen’s melodies soon inspire Javed to find his own voice and follow his dreams.

Historical Accuracy of Once Upon A Time in Hollywood | Anatomy of a Movie

#OnceUponATimeInHollywood #MansonFamily #History this show, AOM hosts Christian Bladt and Alexa Cappiello discuss the 2019 film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and talk about it’s historical accuracy vs the move itself.

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold | Anatomy of a Movie

#DoraMovie #LostCityofGold #AnatomyofAMovieIn this show, AOM hosts Demetri Panos and Kit Bowen discuss the 2019 Dora and the Lost City of Gold film. The hosts discuss everything from filmography, to casting/acting, directing, cinematography, editing, score, sound editing, etc.

Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle, nothing could prepare Dora for her most dangerous adventure yet — high school. Accompanied by a ragtag group of teens and Boots the monkey, Dora embarks on a quest to save her parents while trying to solve the seemingly impossible mystery behind a lost Incan civilization.

Presented by Popcorn Talk and the LA Online Film Critics Society, this is Film Critics Weekly, where members of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society come together to discuss new topics of the weeks, the movies you may have missed but need to check out, and reveal insider information of the film and journalism industry. Join host Scott Menzel with a rotating panel of members of the LAOFCS as they bring you into the inner circle with heightened discussion and knowledge.

Each week, the show will feature four weekly segments which include:
-Movie Pick of The Week – A weekly vote of all films being released in Los Angeles that week.
-Independent Spotlight – A weekly Indie film suggestion from each member on the panel. The film can be playing in theaters, on-demand, or various streaming services.
-Retro Rewind – A weekly recommendation of an older release that is currently available on streaming, DVD, or Blu-Ray.
-Special Topic – Each week there will be a special conversation about something going on the industry or something that ties into this week’s episode.

Who are the LAOFCS?

Los Angeles is the home of Hollywood and the film industry. There are hundreds of critics in the Los Angeles area and yet there was only one critic’s circle. San Francisco, New York, Austin, and all other major cities throughout the USA have an online critics group but not Los Angeles. We wanted to change that and therefore launched the Los Angeles Film Critics Society (LAOFCS) at the end of 2016.

By creating this group, they wanted to ensure that the members of their society are reflective of those who reside in the city of Los Angeles. Diversity is very important in film criticism and they want to make sure that all voices are represented within our group. They also want to embrace members that are finding new ways to criticize film whether that be through video, podcasts, or on social media.

Over the next few years, the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society is hoping to redefine what it means to be part of a film critics group by having a year-round presence. Most film critic circles at the end of each year begin to appear to discuss their favorite films of the year. They wanted to create a film critics group that would openly discuss film throughout the year and not just during award season.

Who are the LAOFCS?

Los Angeles is the home of Hollywood and the film industry. There are hundreds of critics in the Los Angeles area and yet there was only one critic’s circle. San Francisco, New York, Austin, and all other major cities throughout the USA have an online critics group but not Los Angeles. We wanted to change that and therefore launched the Los Angeles Film Critics Society (LAOFCS) at the end of 2016.

By creating this group, they wanted to ensure that the members of their society are reflective of those who reside in the city of Los Angeles. Diversity is very important in film criticism and they want to make sure that all voices are represented within our group. They also want to embrace members that are finding new ways to criticize film whether that be through video, podcasts, or on social media.

Over the next few years, the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society is hoping to redefine what it means to be part of a film critics group by having a year-round presence. Most film critic circles at the end of each year begin to appear to discuss their favorite films of the year. They wanted to create a film critics group that would openly discuss film throughout the year and not just during award season.
