So, we had a pretty unconventional first meeting back to say the least. Although the weather was terribly cold, that didn’t stop us from meeting.
We had our first meeting via video chat (through Google Hangout) and to my surprise, as someone who is not super tech-savvy, it went great!
- We discussed the 2019 Oscar nominations, congratulations are in order for Black Panther leading with 6 nominations (including Best Picture), Bohemian Rhapsody with 5 nominations including Best Actor (Rami Malek), and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse which is nominated for Best Animated Picture. There is plenty of competition this year and no doubt there will be some drama after the ceremony over snubs and losses.
- We talked about films coming in 2019 including Captain Marvel, Detective Pikachu, Rocketman, and IT: Chapter Two. I think 2019 will be a great year for movies and, will be very diverse in terms of genres. Personally, I’m excited to see what “indie” films will be coming out this year. The last 2 years have been really good for the smaller, more “indie” films in my opinion and I don’t think 2019 will disappoint.
