your-name-680

This week, Patches is back from Japan and wants to talk about anime sensation Your Name, David is back from the Berlin Film Festival and has a wrap up, and Katey is deep in Academy Awards coverage, so the gang decides to flash back by decades to the 2007 and 1997 Academy Awards to see how the show (and it's nominees) have changed and what stuck.

This week, Patches and David are out of the country, so Katey and Da7e invited returning guest host Jordan Hoffman of The Guardian and Engage! The Official Star Trek Podcast back to the war room. Jordan has contrary opinons about Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick 2 while Da7e disliked Lego Batman (unlike the rest of America). The two guys even let Katey talk about the Grammys a little!

150 – Movies that Represent What We Want for America

flag

It's only as political as it needs to be.

It's our sixth Quell as Fighting in The War Room! After polling listeners for Quarter Quell topics, the crew ends up selecting a winner, then tweakign the wording a bit. What they're left with is a prompt to bring movies that represent what they want to see in America. Da7e brings Mr. Smith Goes To Washington for basically the reasons you'd assume, Katey looks back to Juno and a suburbia full of characters, Patches justifies why he selected Michael Haneke's Caché, and David picks a full-length dance movie with Girl Walk All Day.

This week, Patches left both his computer charger and David at Sundance, so he calls in to Da7e and Katey to report on some of his favorite highlights from the most recent (very snowy) Sundance Film Festival! Then, Katey and Da7e discover they both love the Kindle iPhone app for very specific reasons and the show almost becomes an ad before Katey uses last weekend's SAG Awards to discuss how this awards season, politics may be unavoidable.
