Have you ever wondered how KPCC’s FilmWeek critics make time to see so many movies for the show each week while still reviewing films for the publication they work for?

Or maybe you want to know whether they think the recent spate of Disney live-action remakes of films like Aladdin and The Lion King will be a continued success? Or maybe you just want to know why they decided to be film critics?

Whatever your film or criticism-related query is, we want to hear from you! Join our live conversation at 866-893-5722 or tweet us @AirTalk with your question and the hashtag #AskACritic, and we’ll ask the critics!
