Chris Owen and Neil Blackwood present their Peter Pan and Wendy/Beau is Afraid Movie Review!
May the fourth be with you and also with your co-hosts! Two newer movies! First up, they talk the latest Disney (cash grab?) live action remake- Peter Pan and Wendy. Then, after a star wars quiz and a lengthy news segment, the guys have a spirited discussion about Ari Aster’s last nightmare Beau Is Afraid. Yuh.
Beau Is Afraid is a 2023 American surrealist tragicomedy horror film written, directed, and produced by Ari Aster. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as the title character, Beau Wassermann, and also includes a supporting ensemble cast consisting of Patti LuPone, Nathan Lane, Amy Ryan, Kylie Rogers, Parker Posey, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Hayley Squires, Michael Gandolfini, Zoe Lister-Jones, and Richard Kind. Its plot follows the mild-mannered but paranoia-ridden Beau as he embarks on a surreal odyssey to get home to attend his mother’s funeral, confronting his greatest fears along the way.
Distributed by A24, Beau Is Afraid premiered at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema on April 1, 2023, and began a limited theatrical release in the United States on April 14, 2023, before a wide release the following week. The film received generally favorable reviews from critics, with praise directed towards Aster’s direction, Phoenix’s performance, and tone.
Peter Pan & Wendy is a 2023 American fantasy adventure film directed by David Lowery from a screenplay he co-wrote with Toby Halbrooks. Jim Whitaker served as producer on the Walt Disney Pictures production, which is a live-action adaptation of Walt Disney’s 1953 animated film Peter Pan, in turn based on the 1904 play Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up (also known as Peter and Wendy) by J. M. Barrie.
