On the agenda:

  • Talking about the start of the South By Southwest (SXSW) film festival which featured the World Premiere of Jordan Peele’s “Us,” which opened to outstanding notices from critics and audiences.
  • This will feed a discussion about the horror genre and its interpretation by Academy members and general audiences. We’re going to talk about some of film history’s most iconic horror films that got ignored.
  • Captain Marvel” opens. Keeping it very surface-y. No spoilers. General audience and film critic reactions.
  • Not before long, we’ll wrap up looking at a handful of anticipated 2019 films, Changing it up from what we traditionally do by naming a few Awards Profiles, we’re going to look at a studios slate (as it stands). We’re going to look at A24 and its slate includes “Gloria Bell” (TIFF hopeful for Julianne Moore), “High Life” (NYFF feature from Claire Denis), “Native Son” (big adaptation coming up), “Under the Silver Lake” (premiered at AFI and was pushed back), “The Souvenir” (Sundance hit), “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” (another Sundance hit), “The Farewell” (screenplay and Awkwafina contender), “Skin” (the long-form version of the Oscar-winning short), “Midsommar” (Ari Aster’s follow-up), “In Fabric” (from Peter Strickland), and “Share” (with Pippa Bianco).  And then there are others with no release dates yet that can do damage like “The Lighthouse.”
