Welcome to Week Twenty-Eight of Now Showing NZ’s Weekly Podcast

Week Ending 13/12/2020

Our PODCAST IS NOT SPOILER FREE

Thursday’s Disney Investor announcements took the pop culture world by storm by breaking the news that Hayden Christensen will be reprising his role as Darth Vader for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series! And we talk about all the announcements made that day at the beginning of our podcast. We follow this with a review of The Mandalorian episodes 7 and 8 and Grogu is taken captive by the Empire! Next we look at two new limited series streamers The Flight Attendant and The Undoing with Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman. Followed by our movie reviews for Blade (one of our favourites), the Jasper Mall documentary, Blade II, Black Bear (the new Aubrey Plaza film released this year), and finally the quintessential Christmas film, Home Alone.
