We’re doing a horror movie this week! Weird, right? We don’t usually partake in films that make us scared to turn off the lights at night but this week’s film was too hard to ignore. We’re taking on “The Witch”, a film about a Puritan family in 1600s New England that has an encounter with, well, an unsavory being. We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “The People v O.J. Simpson” and move on to discuss the debut trailer for the “Ghostbusters” reboot. Tune in for the spooky episode!

Episode #181 – “The Big Short”

Adam McKay wanted to make his buddy cop comedy “The Other Guys” a commentary on the financial collapse of 2008 but instead, it turned out to be Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg trading barbs with some weird ponzi scheme thing as a B plot. Now McKay is back and he has gotten it all out of his system. “The Big Short” follows a small group of men who saw the housing bubble’s upcoming burst…and decided to make a whole lot of money on it. How does this real-life story transition to the big screen? We go in-depth. We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Anomalisa” and “The Grinder”, and move on to talk about our favorite movies of 2015!
