Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Gravity, Homeland, and New MusicShowtime
Nobody says “movie magic” anymore because it is not 1955, but corny or not, that is basically the subject of the first 30 minutes of this week’s pod. Andy and I were starstruck, slack-jawed, and overjoyed upon viewing Alfonso Cuarón’s space disaster, Gravity. It’s the best 3-D movie ever (shout-out to Unobtainium), and easily one of the best films of the year. We talked George, Sandra, the fact that you must see this movie in theaters, how more movies should be like that, and whether it matters that this movie, one that gets so many things so right, apparently gets the science of outer space so wrong (spoiler: It doesn’t matter).
We came crashing back to Earth with a discussion about the disappointing third season of Homeland. We mourned for Dana and speculated about where Peter Quinn shops. Hey, it beats actually talking about Homeland.
Finally, we rounded up some of the recent album releases from Chvrches, Arctic Monkeys, Pusha T, and Lorde. You can check out some of the songs we discuss in the below Spotify playlist. Come fly with us.
