On the agenda:

  • Recording from San Juan, Puerto Rico, we speak about our favorite spanish language films.
  • Talking about the “Kid Shows” would we love to see rebooted, in celebration of “Power Rangers.”
  • Thanks to a reader question, we try to call our predicted Oscar winners for 2018.
  • The new trailer for “Justice League” dropped and we talk about the problems with the DC Universe and what they can do to fix it.
  • Thanks to a reader question, we speak about the most “forgettable” Best Picture winners and the best (and worst) winners of all-time.
  • What actor or actress has the worst Oscar win that represents them?  We venture some guesses.
  • Clayton and Mark talk about what movies we want to start showing our children (and when).
  • We get into the actors that we love (unapologetically) including Kevin Costner and Tom Cruise.
  • Looking at two specific contenders for 2017: “The Snowman” from Tomas Alfredson and “Molly’s Game” from Aaron Sorkin.  Is Michael Fassbender and Jessica Chastain a sure thing for the season?
  • Circuit Madness results read LIVE on the episode!  What big upsets are in the future? PLENTY!
