Scannain Podcast - #44 - 2018

November 22, 2018 @ 9:58 pm

It's time for the latest Scannain podcast! Almost live from the Dublin Feminist Film Festival this week.

Recorded late on Wednesday evening, following the screening of the festival shorts and Parklands. Directed by Kathryn Millard, with cinematography by Mandy Walker, Parklands is notable as Cate Blanchett's first starring role. So Jay Coyle, Ronan Doyle, and Darren Mooney talk a little bit about our reactions to both the shorts and the film itself.

As usual, we talk about the top ten and the new releases, as well as what we've watched this week outside of the festival. In this episode, Jay discusses both the massive list of great films he has to watch before the end of the year and his decision to watch both The Meg and Skyscraper instead. Ronan has seen two of the films in the top ten, having very strong opinions about both A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody.

There is a lot to cover in news, including the announcement of a new Criterion streaming service risen from the ashes of Filmstruck, the awards at the Cork Film Festival, the Irish Film Festival London, the Polish Film Festival at the Irish Film Institute and the launch of Screen Skills Ireland. So a busy week.

  1. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
  2. The Grinch
  3. Bohemian Rhapsody
  4. A Star is Born
  5. Widows
  6. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
