We're back, baby! After a month off and not the least bit tanner or well rested, Judson & Collin are back to gush over Rian Johnson and the teaser for his forthcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi; Collin also details his experiences at the TCM Film Festival which he covered for Cinelinx.com
Judson & Collin are back and talkin' horror this week! They talk Kubrick's horror masterpiece The Shining & Robert Eggers masterful debut The VVitch; they also talk about American sexual Puritanism, The Birth of a Nation, the moon landing, even work in a mention of There Will Be Blood - fancy that!
Get Out, a genre sleeper hit rightfully boasted as having spawned "From the mind of Jordan Peele’" has seized online review aggregators & the box office as its own. Making back ($33.4m), already, nearly 6 times its budget ($4.5m) in its debuting weekend, Get Out looks to grow in the comings weeks and has, as of March 3rd amassed a $57.8 million gross revenue. Careers have been secured.
This week the boys analyze All the President's Men and Zodiac and discuss journalism, obsession, ethics, and some other stuff in a very profound and endearing way.
Judson & Collin are joined by Star Wars expert Jason Ward, the editor-and-chief of MakingStarWars.net and co-host of Now, This is Podcasting!, to talk about Star Wars: A New Hope and Akira Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress, which inevitably branches into a discussion about Star Wars in general and the overall influence that Kurosawa has had on Star Wars.

The movie news that the film community has been waiting for: Focus Features sent out an official press release giving us an update on the new unititled Paul Thomas Anderson film, which reunites him with Daniel Day-Lewis after the two collaborated on the 2007 masterpiece There Will Be Blood.
Judson & Collin talk space, language, high intelligence, and probably some other stuff very uncharismatically as they dissect the cinematic DNA that Arrival, Interstellar, and 2001: A Space Odyssey share. Lift off into a higher understanding in our best episode yet.
I was graced with the opportunity to talk shop on The Alchemist Cookbook, a SXSW gem that saturated all three of its screenings with starved festival foodies, with writer/director Joel Potrykus. Buzzfeed has genred it horror, but I'd be damned before I stuck the film a label. Joel and I talk a little about what happened behind the scenes on this divisive, unignorable beast, of a film. Take a look.
