    Babylon

    Babylon

    This film is jam-packed with everything a movie should offer, star power, an intertwining plot, fabulous music, and gorgeous costumes. Besides a great cast featuring Margot Robie and Brad Pitt, the ensemble is perfectly cast and there isn't a weak performance. The director, Damien Chazelle, does an outstanding job in this ode to a burgeoning Hollywood one hundred years after its inception. In this Chick Flick Chat, we cover a lot and I tried to drill down on the pertinent aspects and subtext of this visually enticing film. I wade into a discussion of the Oscar nominations that did not - but should have - included this movie for acting and directing. Join me!

    Elvis

    Elvis

    Just like Elvis Presley, this film is beautiful in every aspect. Baz Lurhmann directs a stunning, and moving film with more detail than I could even begin to discuss. And yet, we discuss quite a lot! Austin Butler turns in an Oscar worthy performance as the bigger than life icon. In this Chick Flick Chat, we explore the bigger picture of what it all means and how this story helps us understand Elvis's journey. So much to chat about in this brilliant production. Join me!

    Audio correction: I called the actress Olivia DeJonge, who portrays Priscilla, "Erica," in this podcast.

    Tulsa King, Episode 1

    In the first episode of Tulsa King, it is definitely the Sly Stallone show... And there is nothin' wrong with that!

From the casting, acting, plot, to the underlying meanings, I go in depth about what makes this episode good, and why it could have been great.

    The Staircase

    The Staircase

    In the HBOMax original series, The Staircase, starring Colin Firth and Toni Collette, the most important aspect is that it is based on real events. The fact that this is a true story, combined with good acting, a substantial supporting cast - including Juliette Binoche - and very compelling direction (by Antonio Campos), makes The Staircase a must see. Two spoilers in this Chick Flick Chat, I do chat about the whole story, and FYI: when you watch the series you won't be feeling happy afterward. For all the reasons I mention here, and talk about in this television review, it is worth watching, just don't expect an uplifting tale. In this CFC, I reveal the three main theories of what might have happened on that fated night on the back hallway staircase, and delve into the complex relationships that drive the plot. This story is one that takes you step by step, up and down, and side by side. Listen, watch, and try to decide for yourself. I bet you will come away guessing!

    House of Gucci

    House of Gucci

    Brilliantly adapted from the book by Sara Gay Forden, "The House of Gucci," this film comes to life through the talents of Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, and a very strong supporting cast. It is beautifully filmed, well acted, and a treat for anyone who loves fashion. Director Ridley Scott manages to create a multifaceted foray into greed, ambition, creativity, marriage, money, and more!
    In this episode of Chick Flick Chat you can listen without worry if you haven't see the movie yet, because I avoided spoiling the plot. It is a fascinating story since it's true. There is so much to examine that I will probably come back to this film after Oscar season to do a deep discussion into the roles for women and women's roles (those are the details at the heart of Chick Flick Chat!). Enjoy!
