On the episode’s agenda (recorded March 22, 2020):

  • Taking questions from our readers that lead to discussions about previous Oscar-winners and how they have aged:
    • Sean Penn, “Milk”
    • Tilda Swinton, “Michael Clayton”
    • Alan Arkin, “Little Miss Sunshine”
    • Rachel Weisz, “The Constant Gardener”
    • Nicole Kidman, “The Hours”
    • Reese Witherspoon, “Walk the Line”
  • Cinephile Showdowns, as we choose between writer Christopher James’ Top 10 films of 2019 and 2018. Some choices include “Paddington 2” and “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”
  • Talking about the overrated and underrated Pixar films in their filmography.
  • Is there a time that any Oscar lineup has matched with our own, in any category, 5 for 5?
  • Who is the most overdue cinematographer working today now that Roger Deakins and Emmanuel Lubezki have Academy Awards?
  • We are recommending some movies that you should watch from the 1970s before getting into a lengthy discussion about the western genre, Mark Johnson’s favorite, and what some of the best and worst have been in history.

    (any general question about any topic you desire)
