Whether you’re watching “Wonder Woman” or “The Big Sick,” “A Ghost Story” or “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” you’re going to find plenty of quality at the movies this summer. There have been some letdowns, of course — but by and large, 2017 has turned out to be one of the best summer movie seasons in ages. We tend to dread this time of year as the moment when brainless blockbusters overtake more substantial cinematic achievements. So…what gives?

That’s one of the key questions in this week’s episode of Screen Talk, in which Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson also discuss the latest Emmy nominations and how they compare to the Oscars. They also touch on news surrounding Quentin Tarantino’s next project.

Listen to the full episode above.
