Bradley Cooper dives in the deep end for directing debut

On last week's show - episode #700! - Adam and Josh joined the STAR IS BORN fan club, but did they love it enough to satisfy the movie's most ardent supporters? Also: the Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips (aka "The Mighty Steed") came aboard for a preview of the Chicago Int'l Film Festival (Oct 10-21) and the Filmspotting Top 5: Movie Duets. When your mind's made up, you should listen here. I promise that you'll be fallin' slowly for all these great picks. Partial transcript here.

In the Filmspotting archive:
Bradley Cooper's Oscar-nominated performances:
Silver Linings Playbook (2013)
American Hustle (2014)
American Sniper (2015)

LOOKING AHEAD
Coming this week: Damien Chazelle's FIRST MAN plus the Filmspotting Top 5: Flight Scenes. (No, you're not crazy, it was going to be Top 5 Movie Astronauts. See below for a thrilling, minute-by-minute account of how this change took place.)

Friday 10/19: David Gordon Green's
HALLOWEEN, plus a Sacred Cow review of the 1978 John Carpenter original. Email or call now to explain to Josh why he's so very very wrong about the original "Halloween." Send feedback or audio file to feedback@filmspotting.net or leave a voicemail: 312-264-0744.
THE SAUSAGE: The Life & Death of a Top 5
Friday, Sept. 21st [14 days before recording]
12:51pm
Josh creates "#701_first-man" channel in Slack.
12:54pm
Josh [to Adam and Sam]: Couldn't find a Top 5 Movie Astronauts in the archive. How's that sound for this show (both historical and fictional)?

Tuesday, Sept. 25th [10 days before recording]
5:21pm
Josh: Any thoughts on Movie Astronauts as a Top 5 for this show?
5:24pm
Adam: When you think of this list, who comes to mind?
7:00pm
Josh: Could be anyone from an Apollo 13 crew member to Sandra Bullock in Gravity. Basically a human who goes to space in a movie.
7:01pm
Adam: Right, I guess who did you have in mind that made it seem fruitful? Bullock is a good one.
7:04pm
Josh: Haven’t gotten that far but there are a lot of space travel movies.

Wednesday, Oct. 3rd [6 days before recording]
8:52pm
Josh: So I found 5 astronauts I’m happy with, but I’ll admit that’s from a list of 7 total. Adam may have been right. Is this the week we ditch a top 5 in favor of Hold The Dark?
9:07pm
Adam: I thought it was slim pickings, too. The kind of list I look at and reject because I can't sink my teeth into it; but can also talk myself into "just pick 5 and call it a day."

Thursday, Oct. 4th [5 days before recording]
2:58pm
Josh: So I guess it's either Astronauts or Hold the Dark for seg3?
3:16pm
Sam: Can’t say I’m super excited about Astronauts either. Then again, wish I was confident about a Hold the Dark rave from either of you. What about Top 5 Flight Scenes? 
4:09pm
Sam: Flight scenes do offer a specific kind of visceral movie thrill. Maybe focusing on those scenes as opposed to scenes that just happen to take place on an airplane?
4:10pm 
Josh: Space flight or any flight?
4:10pm
Sam: Any flight. My impression of First Man is that there's a fair amount of non-space aviation scenes.
4:12pm 
Josh: I like it.
5:07pm
Adam: Ok. Good thing we know all those World War II and Howard Hughes movies so well.
5:14pm
Sam: I don’t like you because you’re dangerous.
5:45pm
Adam: I don’t know if I’m feeling the need for speed on this one.

Fri, Oct. 5th [4 days before recording]
2:24pm
Josh: Top 5 Flight Scenes officially a go?
2:30pm
Adam: You’ve been approved for takeoff.
