Not Quite Hollywood FACEBOOK EXCLUSIVE! “How Theaters Can Thrive Against Streaming Services”

This topic got so dirty so fast, that it became too hot for iTunes!

And it’s funny, because as I was editing, I was unsure of how we assumed it was too raunchy during recording, but as it progressed, sure enough! Hot damn!

John also spills the beans on his communal film for next Even episode!

Bonus Ep #1: The Year in Film (So Far)

This week is a little different as we break out the previous episode’s first topic into its own segment.

The landscape of film has changed. Once, we looked to the summer blockbusters for a little substance along with the entertainment, but lately, they’ve been lacking on both; so we rate the year and offer our Top Three films (so far).

(Normally) each odd-numbered episode we talk specific films, and each even-numbered episode we discuss topics regarding Hollywood and the things we’re passionate about (either way).
