This Year’s Oscars Hit Different – Also, The Lost City and 7 Days!

In addition to reviewing The Lost City, the latest from Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, we discuss the Oscars' biggest, ahem, surprises.

Oscars 2022 really slapped this year. That’s right, we’re discussing Will Smith and Chris Rock’s exchange of hard-hitting ideas at this year’s ceremony, but we of course comment on the awards themselves and our thoughts on who won. Our first main review is The Lost City, a swashbuckling romantic comedy adventure blockbuster starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. Then we slow things down for a hearty review of 7 Days, an indie rom-com starring Geraldine Viswanathan and Karan Soni.

Synopsis for The Lost City

THE ADVENTURE IS REAL. THE HEROES ARE NOT. Follows a reclusive romance novelist who was sure nothing could be worse than getting stuck on a book tour with her cover model, until a kidnapping attempt sweeps them both into a cutthroat jungle adventure, proving life can be so much stranger, and more romantic, than any of her paperback fictions.

Synopsis for 7 Days

As if their pre-arranged date, organized by their traditional Indian parents, wasn’t uncomfortable enough, Ravi and Rita are forced to shelter in place together as COVID-19’s reach intensifies. Hopefully for their sake, opposites do indeed attract. [Source: Letterboxd]
