We blast off with First Man, the intimate portrait of astronaut Neil Armstrong set against the backdrop of the first mission to the moon. It’s from the Academy Award winning director of La La Land, Damien Chazelle, starring his La La lead Ryan Gosling.

We close with a deep dive gushing into A Star Is Born, Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut starring Cooper and Lady Gaga. It has become a touchstone in the cultural zeitgeist. (You can’t go on Twitter without scrolling past a “Take Another Look At You” meme.)

In between, we discuss October’s box office record breaker Venom, the anti-hero comic book movie, and the (possible) swan song for one of Hollywood’s most beloved icons, Robert Redford, in The Old Man & the Gun.

Music Selections:
– “The Landing”, Justin Hurwitz, First Man
– “The Shallow”, Lady Gaga, A Star Is Born
– “Maybe It’s Time”, Bradley Cooper, A Star Is Born
