It's no easy task to produce the world's most respected film awards ceremony, but somehow Ronald, Steve, and John have managed it for half a decade now. New categories! Fresh snack mix! A paper shredder! This year's show has it all.
As follow-up to a recent discussion about remakes, and as part of an ongoing conversation concerning Disney's status as pop culture overlord, the guys dig in to the latest of the Mouse House's efforts, a digitally spruced-up recreation of their 1991 classic, Beauty and the Beast. Did this tale as old as time need retelling?
The guys are so excited about Get Out—a racially-charged new horror film written and directed by comedian Jordan Peele—that they had to wedge in a bonus episode about it. See the film and join the discussion! (Note: The first half is spoiler free, with ample warning.)
Ronald is under self-quarantine due to a nasty cold, so the guys phone it in as they discuss the upcoming Academy Awards broadcast, including some category picks and a breakdown of how the current political climate could affect the ceremony.
Things always get nervy around Schmovie HQ when it's time to make our annual 'best of' lists, but for some reason, this year we were especially agitated. Our eternal optimism says this is because there were many great films to sift through in 2016. We buckled down and made some difficult choices. See if you agree!
It's time to break out your M. Night Shyamalan spreadsheets and add a new row for the increasingly resourceful director's latest, a tricky thriller called Split. Is this a comeback? Or did that already happen with The Visit? Who knows? We won't really understand it until we get to the end. The first 16 minutes are spoiler-free.
As our nation inaugurates a new Commander-in-Chief, and we all sort through our feelings about that, Ronald, Steve and John swear in a notable new batch of dreadful, dull or disappointing films that saw release in 2016. It's more fun than it sounds.
Gorge yourself on a generous helping of television talk as Ronald, Steve, and John each name their top five shows of the year.
