199 – Sundance 2018, Una mujer fant├ística, Call Me By Your Name for everybody

landscape-1505307489-call-me-by-your-name

This week, David is back from Park City and not on Ambien this time, so we revisit his experiences at Sundance 2018 and try to find out if this was a down or off year for the festival, or just the perception. Then, Patches and David have seen Foriegn Oscar Nom Una mujer fantástica and talk about why you should see it! Finally – Dave has seen Call Me By Your Name! It only took a year since the movie's premiere, but Dave made the time to see it…why isn't the rest of America?

 

Also, we are asking for you, the listener, to help us program our upcoming Quarter Quell! We want you to pick a movie that is on Netflix for each of us to watch that we might not otherwise choose–maybe because we're terrified of horror, maybe because we don't want enough inernational films, whatever. Pick a movie that would actually be interesting to discuss or see– sorry, A Christmas Prince– and tweet at us or post on Facebook with your picks. Each of us will be assigned a fiml that is brand-new to us to watch, and we'll discuss it on the upcoming Quarter Quell, with a thank-you to whoever picked it!

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.

STORM OF SPOILERS TOUR: Sundance and Thought Bubble Special

legion_trailer.0

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST THAT IS TALKING ABOUT OTHER GREAT POP CULTURE DURING THE OFF SEASON

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales, and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

Welcome to another off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week, Neil is phoning in from Park City Utah, so we dedicate the usual Game of Thrones News Segment to Sundance news so Neil can address the Netflix invasion, a couple of good rom-com movies, and a non-spoiler discussion of Get Out. Then, Dave and Joanna loop back around to the comic book movie news and television stuff they've missed. Most importantly, Joanna tries to describe FX's new X-series Legion and how it both does and doesn't have mutants. Then, right at the end in a tangent, Dave talks about the very end of Split and doesn't think it's a big deal because the movie is already out, but he spoils Joanna.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED FOR SPLIT – Skip to the Outro (01:02:52) once you hear the WARNING around 58 MINUTES IN

THIS WEEK'S TIMECODES:

0:00:00 – Intro, Reviews, Sundance

0:19:36 – Thought Bubble Segment!
