    We're back and we're catching up on the Cannes Film Festival, John Wick Chapter 3, and Aladdin, and we are divided on the merits of Guy Ritchie's live-action adaptation. We also talk Avatar, and what its potential is in a changed blockbuster landscape where every movie looks like, well, Avatar. Plus, there is a bonus detour into true crime and why there isn't a Chernobyl-style retelling of the Romanov and/or Black Dahlia murders. It just wouldn't be The Hollywood Read if we didn't end up somewhere dark and macabre.  Recommended reading for this episode: Kayleigh on Guy Ritchie: http://www.pajiba.com/film_reviews/in-defense-of-guy-ritchie.php?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Roxana Hadadi on Aladdin's Orientalism: http://www.pajiba.com/film_reviews/review-count-on-disney-to-make-aladdin-more-orientalist-than-it-already-was-.php Lindsay Ellis on how Disney screwed Robin Williams and created a hit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyiBdccfNkg Kayleigh Twitter: @Ceilidhann Sarah Twitter: @Cinesnark
