#27: Mank, Citizen Kane, Mandalorian Season 2 Episodes 5 & 6, Warner Bros. and HBO Max news
Dec 9th, 2020 by TheBlockBusters
In the longest (so far) instalment of our show we go back to the roots of cinema and we discuss a timeless classic - Orson Wells’ ‘Citizen Kane’. And that’s our starting point for a review of David Fincher’s ‘Mank’.
Large part of our news section is devoted to the fact that Warner Bros. will premiere all of their 2021 movies on HBO Go, not only in cinemas. What are the implication of that for the whole industry?
And finally, we dive into two recent episodes of adventures of galaxy’s favourite Child and his masked minder, aka ‘Mandalorian’.
