Heard on Olympic & Bundy - Grae Drake is a senior editor at Rotten Tomatoes. She often comes on Good Day LA to review upcoming films in theaters, but has done many other jobs beyond watching and critiquing movies.
She's worked as a producer for reality TV shows like "Women on Death Row" and "Women Who Kill," as well as "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," jobs which she says made her cry on the regular.
We talked about what it's like to be a movie reviewer. How much does she read about a film beforehand, and what is she looking for in the film?
We also discussed some of films up for Academy Awards this year, including "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," "I, Tonya," "Darkest Hour," "Dunkirk," as well as her experiences interviewing people like Gwyneth Paltrow, Ryan Gosling and her special friendship with the great Samuel L. Jackson.
Grae is witty, smart and just a very entertaining and fun person in general.
Seriously, just watch her demo reel:
