CultureCow: Goodbye Mr. Bond and Good Job

by Devin McCue, Sumner Newscow — Happy Friday. November brings a lot of great things. Cooler weather, pumpkin spiced lattes, and what’s affectionately dubbed “Oscar season.”

Oscar season is the period between November and January where studios release their biggest hits; movies they think will net them some awards. Wes Anderson just put out the French Dispatch, a film sure to snag him a nomination for best picture. Ridley Scott wants to win the Oscar for his new movie House of Gucci so bad he can taste it. And there’s much more on the horizon before December even starts.

But there’s one film, in particular, this month that has a lot of buzz around it, even compared to the huge films on deck: No Time to Die.
