▸ The Academy Awards are, without a doubt, the highlight of the cinematic awards season - but after 92 years, they could do with a breath of fresh air. So - if the SWITCH team had carte blanche of the Oscars, what would we do to make it more appealing? (42:12)

News
▸ As 2019 comes to an end, it means one very exciting thing - awards season is just around the corner! But along with it comes controversies and problems.

▸ Also on the awards front - critical darling ‘Parasite’ got a nod at the SAG awards for best ensemble cast - but why is it the first time an international film has entered the category in 21 years? (28:02)
▸ One of the most exciting things to happen on the entertainment front in 2019 is the launch of Disney+. The new streaming service is packed with film and TV old and new - but Disney has copped a bit of flack after it was discovered certain unsavoury parts of movies have been removed. But should distributors be allowed to re-write history? (30:17)

'Rockabul' director Travis Beard and 'Thunder Road' actor/writer/director Jim Cummings Interviews
Charlie and Ashley present a special episode of SWITCHCast, with interviews with Travis Beard, the director of 'Rockabul', and the writer, director and star of 'Thunder Road', Jim Cummings.
Interviews
Travis Beard is an Aussie who lived in Afghanistan for seven years. As a music lover, he was also fascinated by Kabul’s music culture - or lack of. Imagine your favourite genre - pop, rock, R&B, country - well, there’s a good chance it’s shunned there, and potentially punishable by death. Travis befriended a group of locals who formed District Unknown, Afghanistan’s first heavy metal band. He followed their growth, from their genuinely terrible first performance through to their international success - and that footage formed the documentary ‘Rockabul’. Charlie spoke to travis ahead of the film’s Australian release.

Character studies on struggling male protagonists are a dime a dozen, but none in recent memory have captured the hearts of audiences quite like 'Thunder Road’. The film is a passion project for Jim Cummings, the film's writer, director and lead actor. Ashley spoke to Jim about the stress of single-handedly creating a feature film, and how he ended up befriending Bruce Springsteen along the way.

Well, purveyors of all things traditional, Christopher Nolan and Paul Thomas Anderson, are making it their mission to get audiences to grab their remotes and send this bullshit function to the pits of hell where it belongs.

News
▸ The new-school world of movie streaming and the old-school world of movies in theatres are now at war - and at the centre of that war is a feud between Netflix and the Cannes Film Festival. It all kicked off at the end of March, when Cannes announced that Netflix movies would be banned from competing at the festival because of the streamer's refusal to embrace old-fashioned theatrical rollouts. Last week, Netflix announced that it was pulling out of Cannes completely - not just the competitions - to protest the decision. No films with Netflix distribution will play in any section at Cannes this year. This conflict is really about two very different cinema cultures - the French perspective, which sees cinema as a communal experience devoted to an art that is meant to be projected onto a big screen - and the American one, which values choice and individual taste and looks at a movie as something that’s the same no matter the size of the screen and the viewing conditions under which you see it. Now, with an increasing amount of directors, actors and film critics weighing into the Netflix vs Cannes debate... who is right and who is wrong? (40:21)

Interview
▸ With the release of ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’ this week, Daniel had the chance to chat with acclaimed director Mike Newell about his experiences making the film, dealing with a relatively unknown moment in the history of the Second World War, and to ask him - is a potato peel pie really as bad as it sounds? (47:48)

▸ Esteemed director John Hughes' muse, Molly Ringwald, wrote an essay for the New Yorker describing her view of her most famous films and the scenes in them that today, and in light of the #MeToo movement, will now be seen as sexist, misogynistic and homophobic. So it poses the question - should we judge past films by today’s moral standards? (38:13)

▸ Around a month ago, dogs across Australia had a near-death experience thanks to the piercing sounds of Chris' terrifyingly high-pitched screams in response to the news that Meryl Streep would be joining the cast of 'Big Little Lies' Season 2. With the just released first image of Meryl and Nicole Kidman, AKA two of the greatest living actresses in character in the one frame, we thought we’d celebrate la Streep’s return to television for the first time in over a decade by looking at the big Hollywood names taking the plunge into the golden age of television.

▸ It’s no secret that the world has gone PC mad. Not a joke, an idea, nor an anonymous user comment in free from offence. But what about film? A recent ABC Australia article suggests that local cinema is pandering of late. With audiences sparse when it comes to Australian movies anyway, is the industry so scared to alienate even a single moviegoer that they’re forcing themselves to make nothing but rehashes of ‘The Castle’ and anything the reflects a quote “politically correct ideology”? (32:21)

Interview
▸ For the 150th anniversary of the publication of ‘Alice in Wonderland’, Daniel put his obsession with the novel to good use and threw together an article for SWITCH about the history of Alice on film. Well, you can imagine the shrill noises when Melbourne’s Australian Centre for the Moving Image announced their new exhibition ‘Wonderland’, a look at the relationship between the beloved classic and cinema. Daniel went along to check out the exhibition, and had a chance to chat with curator Jess Bram about how it came about. (37:55)

For an extended version of the interview, visit SWITCH's YouTube channel.

‘Wonderland’ is now open as ACMI’s contribution to Melbourne’s Winter Masterpiece season, so head to acmi.net.au for more details.

News
▸ In the lead-up to its release, social media was awash with people damning Steven Spielberg’s upcoming ‘Ready Player One’ before anyone has even seen it, only for it to receive glowing reviews after its premiere. This practice of ripping a film to pieces en masse based on even just its existence is becoming an even more prevalent trend, in some cases affecting the success of the film on release. So why on earth are we proclaiming a film the antichrist before anyone on the planet has seen the damn thing?
▸ Most of us have Netflix, and some of us might even luxuriate in the divine presence of Stan. It’s safe to say that subscription services are on the rise, and have revolutionised the home entertainment market. So what about the out-of-home market? Founded in 2011, Moviepass is a service in the U.S. that lets you see one film a day in the cinema for a mere $9.95 per month - that’s basically less than a single ticket! With a similar service to supposedly launch in the UK, is it time Australia followed suit, and would you sign up for it?

News
▸ Earlier this week, the BAFTA awards brought us to the final step before the Oscars, and the winners were quite predictable - in fact, in a lot of cases, they mirrored what happened with the Golden Globes. We look at the winners and ask whether the Oscars follow suit, or surprise everyone?
▸ A recent Indiewire article delved into the greatest films of the 21st century that somehow missed out on a single Oscar nomination in their respective years. Now, with the 90th Academy Awards getting closer and closer, we thought it’d be a fine time to talk about our favourite films and their most infuriating misses.
▸ In 1971, audiences were invited to “view paradise” with ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ - the first big screen adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic. It was a box office flop, but found its place in our hearts, home movie collections and pure imaginations in the decades that followed. Then in 2005, Tim Burton (and Johnny Depp in an Anna Wintour wig) gave kids a chance to score a golden ticket once again. It was the remake no one wanted or asked for - it made millions, but not the cultural impact of its predecessor. Now it’s 2018, and a third adaptation is in the works, this time helmed by ‘Paddington 2’ director Paul King. It's been 13 years since we’ve visited the Oompa Loompas - is it time to explore the chocolate factory again?

▸ Netflix surprised everyone during the Super Bowl, by announcing the release of the latest ‘Cloverfield’ instalment… and then releasing it at the end of the game. Quality of the film aside, this is (i’m sorry for the pun) game changing, using the franchise to once again redefine the way a film is publicised. So what kind of effect will this unconventional release approach have?
▸ All of us here at SWITCH are just a bunch of massive nerds, really, and that takes a surprising amount of work. In one of our recent episodes, Chris cheated in our recommendations by choosing a book rather than a film, so now it's time for a bunch of nerds to choose their favourite books about films for filmmakers or filmmaking - because why just spend hundreds of hours watching films, when you can spend thousands of hours reading about them?

▸ With last week’s announcement of the Oscars nominations and the Oscars themselves a mere 32 days away, there is a veritable pantheon of things to talk about: Netflix has nabbed itself 8 nominations, there have been surprise nominations and even bigger and more shocking snubs. There are campaigns to run and win and hearts to fill and break. So with so much to digest over the next few weeks, let’s take a first bite!
▸ With every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore with the Oscar nominations comes the Razzie nominations, with the ceremony to be held the day before the Oscars. Now in its 38th incarnation, what was once a fun tongue-in-cheek anti-Oscars now seems like a vicious attack on easy targets such as the 'Transformers' franchise, the 'Fifty Shades' films, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson. So is there still a place in the season for the Razzies, or does the award for worst film awards go to the the Golden Raspberries?

News
▸ With the release of ‘The Shape Of Water’, it seems prudent to discuss casting, and how actors without a disability are cast in roles that require them to portray one. Sally Hawkins’ Eliza is mute, relying on American Sign Language to communicate with those around her, and this casting decision has been met with criticism from the deaf community, with notable deaf celebrities like Nyle DiMarco (winner of America’s Next Top Model) talking about how the signs she uses, while correct, aren’t how someone who natively signs would use the language. With technology the way it is and society almost as progressive as we’d like it to be, do we have any excuses to not allow differently abled actors to play their own disability or be cast more often?
▸ Marvel’s next highly-anticipated movie, 'Black Panther', which is due to hit Australian movie theatres on February 15, has already broken an impressive record: it is now the number one pre-sale movie in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, toppling the previous record holder, ‘Captain America: Civil War’, which debuted the character. To say Marvel fans are excited for 'Black Panther' is an understatement - but why are ticket sales so high on this instalment?

So now we have 20 'Fast And Furious' movies and a second 'Pacific Rim' film - and now, even the very mediocre ‘Bright’ has been confirmed for a follow-up on Netflix. So why do we keep getting sequels to generally considered bad movies?
▸ This week saw the release of a controversial new book about the inside of the White House during Donald Trump’s first year in office. A fake except of this book has since gone viral, explaining Trump’s obsession with a non-existent 24 hour Gorilla Channel. Which got us thinking - what 24 hour channel would you like to see come to fruition?

▸ After garnering awards attention and critical praise, Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut ‘Lady Bird’ has become the highest earning film for U.S. film distribution company A24. Casual filmgoers might not know that name, but they’ve been responsible for some of the best films of the past few years, including ‘The Disaster Artist’, ‘The Witch’ and Oscar winner ‘Moonlight’. So who is this little company-that-could, and how have they changed the way Hollywood works?

▸ Moonlight
▸ The Witch
▸ The Florida Project
▸ Spring Breakers
▸ The Lobster
▸ Good Times
▸ The Killing Of A Sacred Deer
▸ A Ghost Story
▸ 20th Century Women
▸ Swiss Army Man
▸ Ex Machina
▸ Room
▸ Krisha
▸ Under The Skin
▸ The Rover
▸ Amy

▸ Karen Gillan - who you might remember as Amy Pond from ‘Doctor Who’ or Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - is continuing her push for an all-female Marvel film. Not only is it a great idea, there's nothing holding back the studios anymore who claim that female action films don’t make money - ‘Wonder Woman’, anyone? So what would make this film work?

▸ It’s time to look back on the last year in cinema, with all of SWITCH’s members sharing their top five films of 2017. so - let the controversy begin!
▸ We also have plenty to look forward to in the year ahead… so we thought we’d share a few of the films we’re anticipating in 2018! Awards season is already looking great, with the previously mentioned ‘Three Billboards’, ‘I, Tonya’ ‘The Shape Of Water’, ‘The Post’, ‘Phantom Thread’ and ‘Lady Bird’, but what else is on the horizon?
▸ Just a few short weeks ago Jess claimed SWITCH’s first ever half-star review with Woody Allen’s 'Wonder Wheel' - making it the lowest rated film in our history... and it’s now sparking our worst films of 2017 debate. There are plenty of potentials, but what are the biggest stinkers of 2017?

▸ Hollywood awards season is already on the horizon, when the rich and beautiful gather to crown the year’s most talented. The Golden Globe nominations are out now - and we have all the highlights and, of course, the snubs.
▸ Alex Garland’s latest directorial feature, ‘Annihilation’, based on the book by Jeff Vandemeer and starring Natalie Portman, has had its global release drastically altered - only being given a traditional “theatrical release” in America, Canada and China, ‘Annihilation’ will be released to the rest of the world on Netflix mere days after it appears in cinemas. So with a seemingly foolproof team, solid source material and huge name in Natalie Portman involved in the film’s creation, why the change? And is this something we can expect more of from Hollywood going forward?
▸ It’s getting hot in here - IndieWire have taken it upon themselves to rank the best sex scenes of the 21st century. The SWITCH team take a peek at some glaring omissions, and rank our sauciest scenes in explicit detail.
▸ Brent is back from Europe - and you know what that means... more emotional plane trips. What did he get teary over this time, and how do unusual locations change how films affect you?

▸ Australia is known for many achievements, and some not so known achievements - the funniest being we possess the biggest fandom of ‘The Room’, thanks to constant sellout monthly screenings at independent cinemas for the last 5 years... yes, we should be proud. This got us thinking - if the worst movie ever made can be beloved by millions, then what other terrible gems are we secretly (or not-so-secretly) loving?
▸ Have you ever been in a movie and felt like it’s just dragged on forever? Particularly with Hollywood blockbusters over the past few years, there’s been a misguided notion that people want to go to the movies for a long time, not a good time - with many movies pushing the three hour mark. There’s been a recent effort to reign in those exorbitant run times - but does a tight film make a good film?

▸ With the award season starting up, studios are getting their ‘For Your consideration’ campaigns into gear. In a surprise move, Universal have submitted acclaimed horror classic ‘Get Out’ in the comedy category of the Golden Globes, with director Jordan Peele’s approval, causing many people to scratch their heads in confusion. How on earth could the supreme horror film of 2017 possibly be classed as a comedy? And has this happened before?
▸ It’s been a few weeks now since the release of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, and it’s made a gazillion dollars, so it's no spoiler that Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth and Sam Neill all have hilarious cameos in the film together. Matt Damon is no stranger to awesome cameos, with 'Eurotrip', 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back' and a very secretive turn in 'Intersellar', just to mention a few. So what are the greatest cameos seen on the big screen?

Interview
‘The Butterfly Tree’ is finally in cinemas, after debuting at this year’s Melbourne International Film Festival. Jake spoke to the movie’s writer and director, Priscilla Cameron, about the process of bringing the script to life, assembling a stellar cast and filming on Mount Tamborine.

▸ Amidst the praise being directed at ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, actor Tessa Thompson revealed that she played her character Valkyrie as bisexual. Marvel then confirmed that a scene that makes this more obvious was actually cut from the film. Marvel seemed to think it deserved kudos for including a queer superhero character - but does it? Does revealing this character information after the fact earn them the points for representation, or is this piecemeal offering actually more insulting when you can’t even see this in the final film, especially when Disney have already been woefully guilty of this in the past twelve months?
▸ The hits just keep on coming in the wake of the Hollywood sexual assault scandal. Oscar winner Kevin Spacey is the latest to crumble beneath the avalanche of accusations, with Netflix not only cutting ties with the actor, but also cancelling the highly popular series ‘House Of Cards’. Further to this, just five weeks out from release, Ridley Scott has made the extreme decision to replace Spacey from his latest film ‘All The Money In The World’ with fellow Oscar winner Christopher Plummer. This last-minute scramble is a huge gamble for the film as is enters awards season, which makes us reflect on other pictures that have made such dramatic 11th hour changes, and ask if you could erase any actor from a film, what would it be?

To celebrate the release of 'Atomic Blonde' on home entertainment, Jess was invited to attend Atomic Spy School. There she were privileged to be instructed in the ways of espionage by former Australian Secret Intelligence Service and MI6-trained spy Warren Reed.

▸ It’s been a great year for filmmaking in Australia - with a record $1.3 billion spent on making movies and TV series for the 2016-17 financial year. We’ve had a big boost from runaway productions like ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, a thriving animation and post-production industry, and original content from local streaming services. With a competitive Australian dollar against the U.S. and great government incentives, isn’t it nice seeing the local film industry doing well while we get a little slice of Hollywood down under?

▸ Trilogies are kind of a given these days, every successful film frantically trying to expand itself into a three-part epic whether it was supposed to or not. Research student Kaylin Walker has taken a far more academic look at the trilogy format, and after scouring through Goodreads and IMDb, has come up with a fascinating conclusion: that “movie trilogies get worse, losing favour with each film, while book trilogies secure higher ratings for book two and maintain them for book three.”

Interview

▸ Over the last few weeks, the foundations of Hollywood have been rocked with the industry’s worst-kept secret finally being exposed - Harvey Weinstein’s reign as the most powerful and prolific producer has come to an end, as has his reign of sexual aggression and intimidation. As the voice of more and more actors lend themselves to this revolution, Weinstein’s name isn’t the only one burning in the flames. These are bad people whose careers and reputations are now ruined - but what of their legacies? These men have undoubtedly done great work over the years, but can we now look at ‘Pulp Fiction’ the same way? Or ‘Shakespeare In Love’? or ‘Lion’, for that matter? And what about those who came before and will come after Harvey Weinstein?

News
▸ Amidst all the excitement over the trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’, Daniel was pretty hesitant to actually watch it, partly because the film itself is just around the corner, but mostly because the art of the film trailer has slipped so drastically that many films are ultimately ruined by trailers that insist on revealing too much. ABC Australia’s Paul Verhoeven wrote about the validity of trailers as a marketing tool for major films like ‘The Last Jedi’, and the degree to which they spoil the plot of the impending film. It’s a double-edged sword though, with some blaming the devastating failure of ‘Blade Runner 2049’ at the box office for the ambiguity of a trailer campaign that didn’t reveal enough. So are trailers still something to get excited about, or have they become something to fear?
▸ The cinema landscape has once again taken a step toward the future, with Samsung unveiling the first ever commercial cinema LED screen in Korea. At nearly 10.3 metres wide, it “accommodates a variety of theatre configurations while ensuring superior levels of technical performance, reliability and quality.” With the lines between television and cinema blurring more and more with time, is this simply the next step in the inevitable evolution of them becoming one in the same, and how will film purists feel about watching future projects on what is essentially a giant TV screen?

Interview
One week into the Melbourne International Film Festival, and audiences have already been spoiled with numerous incredible films, making the long lines on cold nights well worth it. One of the most acclaimed films of the festival is Francis Lee’s ‘God’s Own Country’, a powerful and moving film about a young farmer in Yorkshire and his romance with a Romanian immigrant that’s already being called a queer film classic. Daniel was tremendously lucky to chat with Francis about his debut film while he visits for the festival.

'God's Own Country' is in Australian cinemas from the 31st August 2017. You can read our five-star review here.

Interview
In an attempt to cut costs and improve technology, many cinemas in the past decade have made the move to digital projectors, eliminating the need for film - and film projectionists. Melbourne’s Astor Theatre is one of the few places in Australia that still regularly shows movies on film - and Brent and Daniel went along to take in a 77-year-old classic. For the full program, visit the Astor Theatre website.
