Or, How We Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Pharrell

Welcome to the first official episode of Fighting in the War Room! This week the gang’s all here to talk about musicals and movies that revolve around music, whether there’s a difference and whether the likes of Frozen and Les Miserables are keeping the musical alive. We keep the music theme for a discussion of new interactive music videos from Pharrell and Bob Dylan, then get quizzed by Patches on movie taglines that have been put through the Upworthy spin cycle. All that plus a lightning round devoted to the biggest cinematic turkeys of 2013.
