Directors Wes Anderson, Robert Rodriguez, Richard Linklater and David Lowery all hail from Texas. And each has a new movie out in 2018. This week, we preview a very Texas-centric year in the movies.
For many moviegoers, the holidays are a time to catch up on films you’ve missed. To help you out, this week we talk about the best movies of 2017.
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is easily the most anticipated movie of 2017. And it’s expected to ring up about $200 million in ticket sales on opening weekend. We've seen the film, but don’t worry: No spoilers here - just a conversation about why it all works so well.
“The Shape of Water” - the latest from visionary director Guillermo del Toro - features a monster who’s good and humans who’re the bad guys. This week, we talk about the history of sympathetic monsters - everyone from Frankenstein to the Creature from the Black Lagoon - with SMU film professor Rick Worland.
