On the agenda:

  • The unique crew on board today that includes Clayton, Joey, Chris, and Ryan McQuade.
  • A look at TIFF films that screened and received high praise (“Hustlers” and “Jojo Rabbit“), with some films that did not (“The Goldfinch“).
  • With the influx of new critics added to Rotten Tomatoes, we share some thoughts on the oversaturation of voices on films and the awards circuit (that could prohibit sound decisions from being made by audiences).
  • Our thoughts on James Gray’s “Ad Astra” and its cast that includes Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and Ruth Negga, along with a technical team that includes cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema and composer Max Richter.
  • Checking in on some of the awards races: Is Supporting Actress tailor-made for Laura Dern for “Marriage Story” with a possible miss for Annette Bening for “The Report?”
