The Breakdown of 'Captain Marvel', 'The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind', 'Paris is Us' and Remembering Luke Perry
It is another huge episode of The Movie Breakdown. We have a review for one of the biggest movie events of the year and one that has been hotly anticipated for a long time with the latest MCU picture, Captain Marvel. We also have a Netflix movie that did the festival circuit and is the directorial debut of the talented Chiwetel Ejiofor with a based on true story feel-good drama called The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. Do you feel like it is time for us to review another foreign arthouse drama? Well, we will with the French picture, Paris is Us.
We also pay tribute to a man who was a huge '90s star in Luke Perry. We also discuss two topics that we've looked at in the past but have once again started making headlines. We discuss if Netflix Originals should be able to be nominated for Oscars. Then we look at the toxic side of movie fandom and explore the dangers of too much 'loyalty'. It is almost 90 minutes of movie talk and we had a blast recording it. We really hope you love it, and if you do, please spread the word about us on social media to other movie fans.
