Do you know one guaranteed way to improve your movie? Hire Roger Deakins to be your cinematographer. Director John Crowley figured that out when he tapped the Oscar winner to shoot The Goldfinch, his adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. And it’s something that has been proven over the years by filmmakers like Joel and Ethan Coen and Sam Mendes.
Very few make your movie look as amazing as cinematographer Roger Deakins. Which is why we were thrilled to have Deakins and Crowley join us on this week’s episode of ReelBlend to talk about The Goldfinch, their past films, and the ongoing debate about digital versus film.
Give this week’s episode a spin to hear that conversation.
Before they turned the platform over to Crowley and Deakins, the ReelBlend boys dove into the reports that Robert Downey Jr. might return as Tony Stark for the Black Widow film. From there, Jake opened up about his general disinterest in Marvel’s Phase Four plans, which triggered a heat discussion.
They also discussed It Chapter Two in greater detail, which led to the rumors that co-star Bill Skarsgard and director Andy Muschietti have had conversations about where a possible It 3 could go.
Good idea? Bad idea? Let us know your thoughts.
This Week In Movies led to spoiler-free reviews of Brad Pitt’s Ad Astra, and Kevin and Jake got to share stories about interviewing Pitt this week in Washington D.C.
Finally, in honor of the Roger Deakins appearance on the show, the guys played #RogerDeakinsBlend, but took the game one step further by singling out their favorite Deakins shots. You all played along on social media, and your choices were excellent!
