The Cinedicate: Film & TV Podcast
#103 - Atomic Blonde - Charlize Theron Kicks Ass, The Looming Netflix Remake, and The Last Blockbuster on the Planet
Welcome to another episode of The Cinedicate. This week film podcaster Ruthie from ReShoot stops in to talk about Atomic Blonde and makes a case that this spy thriller is better than the James Bond Franchise.
Listen now as we discuss why Charlize Theron needs to take up more action roles and why this film is the perfect encapsulation of how to set a film in the 1980s. We also get into why this film never spawned a sequel despite being a commercial success. Only to find out that Netflix owns the rights to the film and that it is only a matter of time before we get a lackluster sequel to this awesome movie.
Atomic Blonde centers around Lorraine, an undercover spy, in the heart of Berlin as the Berlin Wall is about to fall. Not only does she have to maneuver around East and West Berlin, but she is trying to retrieve a dossier that has the identities of all spies across the world.
