This week on the podcast, Mike and Scott meet in the dark forest at the edge of the Nostromo Lounge and discuss the ethical realities associated with the Academy holding a Best Stunt Coordinator category at the Oscars, DEADPOOL smashing the 4th wall out of box office records while slapping all the other X-Men films in the face, recent comments made by James Gunn in relation to Hollywood learning the wrong lessons from R-rated superhero films, the Coen Brothers 1991 Palm d'Or winner BARTON FINK is not an obscure movie at all and it is an outright masterpiece in fact, Scott raves about the fantastic Netflix documentary CARTEL LAND which is essentially a cinematic documentary version of SICARIO, Bryan Cranston drops an awards bait line with TRUMBO and we look at the formulaic nature of biopics, the Wookies in STAR WARS REBELS look like derpy potato sausages, we retire all of the ridiculous "controversy" surrounding the January 2018 release date for BLADE RUNNER 2 as signs of an awards qualifying December limited run, and much, much more before our faith-testing review of THE VVITCH from Sundance award winning writer/director Robert Eggers.
