This week the Casual Cinecast has put out a very large episode! Film citic Matt Ward joins the podcast for the first time, in a very special review of A Most Violent Year, the 2014 crime drama starring Oscar Issac and Jessica Chastain. Matt was the winner of the Oscar-Bet 2019 contest from the show this last week, and A Most Violent Year was the film he chose. We also review The Fall (2006), and discuss Leaving Neverland, Steven Spielberg's stance on Netflix movies being eligble for Oscars, and more!

At the last minute, the Casual Cinecast changed their main review from Alita: Battle Angel, to the Oscar nominated film Shoplifters. However, if you watched the wrong movie, don't worry! There is still a lengthy discussion on Alita: Battle Angel, and much more! There's also a follow-up conversation regarding the most recent changes to the Academy Awards broadcast for 2019 we discussed last week!
It's not very often the Casual Cinecast does a documentary as their main review, but They Shall Not Grow Old was just too interesting to pass up.
