Our Oscar Primer miniseries continues, this time we turn our focus to the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man. Directed by Oscar winner Damien Chazelle, it’s a film unlike any historical space film before it, focusing on the visceral intensity of space travel and the effect it had on an emotionally distant Neil and his family. Join The Popcorn Diet as we discuss performance, filmmaking, and what nominations we think it could capture!
The Popcorn Diet crew saw one of their most anticipated movies of the year, Blade Runner 2049 and it has them talking noir films and taking a look at the modern spoiler obsessed culture. Rick explains Blockbuster to the young folk. David respects the artist. All that and more!
