Thoughts from your host…



If you know anything about this show, you know that we generally don’t discuss blockbusters all that often. There are several reasons, most of them not worth getting into here. However, when time comes to break bread with my international filmgoing friends, sometimes the blockbusters are a great help.

So it was this weekend, that thoughts of discussing an indie film about a teenage girl were scuttled…but in its place, conversation turned to a very big-budget movie about a whole other sort of special girl.

It be’s that way sometimes.

As if happens, my guest isn’t the biggest STAR WARS geek – but get her talking about HARRY POTTER, and look out! I love having film fans of all walks on this show, so if this Jedi discussion is informed by selections from The Restricted Section…then so be it.


Thanks for tuning into episode one-hundred-eighty-nine.
