The Popcorn Auteur

Pretty straightforward. We watch all the movies of famous filmmakers and then discuss anything and everything that happens to interest us about them.

Brad Bird has worked with Steven Spielberg, consulted on the Simpsons, directed the cult classic The Iron Giant, won multiple Oscars with Pixar, and helmed a critically acclaimed chapter of the Mission Impossible series.  Is there anything Brad Bird can't do?  Perhaps a live-action film loosely inspired by part of an amusement park was a bridge too far.  

We are thrilled to be joined this episode by Jonathan Sundy, illustrator, character designer, and friend of the show.  Listen as we discuss the philosophical underpinnings in Bird's works, the strength of his cinematic storytelling, and whether the ending of Tomorrowland is redeemable.
