News
▸ 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?

Interview
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.

'Atomic Blonde’ is out now on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital.

News
▸ 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
The Japanese Film Festival is in full swing in Australia right now, with audiences across the country flocking to catch a huge range of films. Charlie spoke to the director of the festival, Margarett Cortez, about what we can expect.

News
▸ 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?

Interview
▸ Classics, modern and scary movies for the entire family - we offer a lot of Halloween suggestions to listeners in this podcast. But with recent scary movies like 'Raw', 'A Girl Walks Home At Night' and 'The Babadook', what about scary movies directed by women? We'd be negligent if we didn't touch on the gender landscapes of horror filmmaking. We asked Briony Kidd, director of Stranger With My Face International Film Festival, for her top five picks.

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.
