The Breakdown of 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald', 'Outlaw King', 'Instant Family'. 'They'll Love Me When I'm Dead' and Remembering Stan Lee and William Goldman
We lost two pop culture icons this week in comic book legend Stan Lee and acclaimed screenwriter and novelist William Goldman. Both writers were creative forces behind beloved entertainment like Spider-Man and The Princess Bride respectively. This week we fondly discuss the personal and bigger impact of both men. But we also review movies and we have a highly anticipated one in the latest film set in the Harry Potter world in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. We also have a dramatic feel-good comedy in Instant Family, a historical epic in Outlaw King and a documentary about Orson Welles' last film in They'll Love Me When I'm Dead. We also get distracted by talking about stars and movies that have nothing to do with this episode, because that is our superpower. As always, we hope you love the show and if you do, please spread the word to other movie fans.
Reminder that you can now subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes (if you enjoy the show, please help us by giving us a five star review).
