What Constitutes a Classic Film and What Do We Miss About Them?
Any movie buff worth their salt is familiar with the term 'classic film', yet that term carries a completely different meaning for each and every fan. Does classic mean from the '60s or before? Do movies from the '80s and '90s qualify as classics?
On this week's From The Outside In topic, we discuss the concept of classic films and what defines them for us. We also debate what we miss about these films, and especially what we don't. Inspired by Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's time capsule approach to storytelling, we decided there is no better time to jump down this rabbit hole.
Speaking of Hollywood, after our normal show we open up Quentin Tarantino's latest film and debate if the choices Tarantino made here were warranted. Much has been written on this latest film, about the performances of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie, as well as Tarantino's penchant for revisionist history, and as fans of the film we felt it deserved proper attention. So be sure to stick around for our Once Upon A Time In Hollywood spoiler discussion.
Also this week: a news roundup, how much we should pay for streaming channels, our spoiler-free review of Amazon Prime's The Boys, and much more. Come back next week for our next topic, Buddy Action Duos, and our review of Hobbs and Shaw!
