The gang reconvenes this week to talk up the latest TV news, including the quickie cancellation of NBC's Ironside, and the Peacock's slow descent to seventh (!!) place in the ratings. In addition, we also discuss the skyrocketing success of AMC's The Walking Dead, the latest news on Jurassic World, and the major floppage of Julian Assange bio The Fifth Estate and the long-awaited (or not so much) Sylvester Stallone-Arnold Schwarzenegger team-up flick Escape Plan at the box office. Then, after a brief conversation about Tom Hanks' new film Captain Phillips, we dive into a Movies That Matter unpacking Tom Hanks' seminal space pic Apollo 13 from 1995.
But that's not all, this episode has two -- count 'em, two! -- interviews as I chat up the spellbinding sea epic All Is Lost (one of his faves of the year) with director J.C. Chandor, and then delve into the many meanings of the Carrie remake with director Kimberly Peirce. There's much more than that as well, including a MovieFilm quiz administered by Brian. This one is super-sized, so don't miss a minute! You can listen via the embed below, or download or stream at iTunes or Stitcher.
