Silver Screen Queens 225: Girls Trip

6 September 2017 • 47 minutes, 2 seconds

A sleeper hit of the American summer, GIRLS TRIP features an all star cast and a fun HANGOVER meets BAD MOMS vibe. Of course, as the all-star cast was black, in Australia, we had to wait two months to see it in cinemas.

Silver Screen Queens 224: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

30 August 2017 • 44 minutes, 48 seconds

Luc Besson is back with another sci-fi epic based on a series of comics and featuring a world where the International Space Station has morphed into the Interplanetary Melting Pot. It stars hipster darlings Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, and features a sweet cameo from Rihanna, but it has not had good press, or box office.

Independence 8: Interacting with Customers

29 August 2017 • 31 minutes, 9 seconds

Customer support is a huge part of any business where you create products. Dealing with problems, handling requests and getting 1-star reviews all comes with the territory, so what is the best way to interact with customers? Alice, Curtis and Jelly examine their own practices to figure out what they’re doing right, and maybe give each other a little help with the process.

Silver Screen Queens 223: Logan Lucky

23 August 2017 • 43 minutes, 37 seconds

Steven Soderbergh’s latest film had an insidious marketing campaign that meant we saw the trailer every time we went to the cinema in the last few months. Unlike many films, however, each time we saw the trailer, we liked it more. It hits a number of our special interests: heists, Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and fast cars, so we went in with some excitement.

Silver Screen Queens 222: The Big Sick

16 August 2017 • 41 minutes, 1 second

A sleeper hit of the summer, this film has had great word of mouth, so we had to check it out. Real life couple Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon collaborated on the script, based on a crisis they dealt with early in their relationship. When Emily is struck with a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself dealing with her parents, while also managing his Pakistani family’s traditional expectations and building his own comedy career.

Independence 7: Side Projects

15 August 2017 • 39 minutes, 26 seconds

As indies, we’re naturally drawn to having projects alongside our regular workload. These can grow into whole new career opportunities, or they can begin to place undue stress on your work life balance, so how do you know what projects are a good fit? Belle, Curtis and Jelly explore their own side projects; both how they’ve started, and how they’ve ended… or are ending, as the case may be.

Silver Screen Queens 221: Atomic Blonde

9 August 2017 • 36 minutes, 40 seconds

Charlize Theron stars as an ass-kicking British spy in this thriller whose slick, shiny trailers took the internet by storm earlier this year. Tired of waiting for a female James Bond to fall in her lap, Theron secured the rights to Antony Johnston’s graphic novel The Coldest City and made it happen for herself. The film is directed by former stuntman and part-time John Wick director David Leitch and set in Berlin just days before the Wall came down.

Silver Screen Queens 220: Dunkirk

2 August 2017 • 45 minutes, 38 seconds

The new Christopher Nolan movie, aka the Harry Styles movie, is out and it actually looks good. Based on the evacuation of British troops from the beach of Dunkirk in 1940, the trailers show a pretty, patriotic flick featuring Tom Hardy as a Spitfire pilot and Mark Rylance as an old dad volunteering his boat for the war effort.

Independence 6: Launches

1 August 2017 • 37 minutes, 51 seconds

A lot of thought needs to be put into launching, both with new products and even with updating existing ones. How do you decide what’s worth making noise about, and what steps do you follow to make sure all your potential customers know? Curtis is deep in thought about this topic himself, so he takes Belle and Jelly through a discussion about their typical processes to figure out what works for them, and what doesn’t.

Silver Screen Queens 219: The Beguiled

26 July 2017 • 42 minutes, 28 seconds

Sofia Coppola’s latest film won Best Director at the recent Cannes Film Festival (making her the first woman director to win the award), and has had some good word of mouth. We haven’t always loved Coppola’s films, but we decided to give it a go when we saw the stellar cast.
