Welcome to the fourth episode of the 2018-2019 season of Dragon Digital Media‘s Reel Talk with Christopher Llewellyn Reed. My guest this time was Mae Abdulbaki, film critic at Movies with Mae, TV editor at The Young Folks, member of the Alliance of Women in Film Journalism, and, like me, a member of the Washington Area Film Critics Association (or WAFCA). We discussed the 2019 Oscars and also reviewed two new films, The Wedding Guest and Captain Marvel. Enjoy! Be sure to check out our first, second and third episodes of the season, or even last year’s season (Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4 and Episode 5). We’ll be back in May. Until then!
In Howard County, Maryland, you can watch the show on Channel 41 (if you’re a Verizon customer) or Channel 96 (if you’re a Comcast customer), and you can watch it online from anywhere. The fantastic Dragon Digital Media team did their usual superlative job putting this together, especially producer Karen Vadnais and director Danielle Maloney, as well as floor manager Anthony Hoos. Have fun this summer at the movies! Here’s hoping there are at least a few great films!
For SXSW we discuss two of the films playing this year, Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins and Pahokee, and Bart and Chris interview the filmmakers of each while in Austin, Texas. To see the videos that accompany our interviews, please go to our “video extras” page. As always, you can find the audio of the episode on our “episodes” page, on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher, and anywhere podcasts are generally available. Enjoy!
This concludes Season 5. Stay tuned for a few bonus episodes over the next two months, with Season 6 slated to begin in mid- to late May.
