The News Reel #27: Are You A Film Snob? (with J.R. Kinnard)

AntonEgo

On this week’s episode, we take a look at New York Times film critic A.O. Scott’s article on the term “film snob” and debate whether Scott has a point or is just making something out of nothing. We are joined by PopOptiq film critic J.R. Kinnard to discuss what defines a “film snob,” whether we are each one, and why it is a term so tightly held by movies. We also look at the first trailer for the new Coen Brothers movie, a handful of Marvel and Disney news, and talk about the loss of a talented director.
