Lady Bird (2017)/Best Films of 2017

As the Academy Awards draw closer, Bo and I get together to give our final look-back on the films of 2017.

First, we go in-depth on Lady Bird, an Oscar contender and coming-of-age story set largely in a Catholic school; Bo and I had polar-opposite reactions to this one.

Then we turn to a review of 2017. And even without consulting beforehand, we both agree on a very surprising pick for the number one spot!

Finally, a big thank you is in order to the redoubtable actor Andrew Nowak of the popular podcast The Bright Sessions, who has graciously provided voice-overs for some new segment drops throughout the podcast (backed by the music of Jahzzar).



As always, intro and outro music is Wastecnology, and backing music for all drops is Luxe, both by Jahzzar, Betterwithmusic, CC BY-SA. Photo uploaded by Film Fan from studio poster via Wikipedia.

Summer Movie Roundup on Iowa Catholic Radio

This week I was graciously invited on The Uncommon Good show on Iowa Catholic Radio (heard on 1150 AM, 88.5 FM, and 94.5 FM) with Dr. Bud Marr and Bo Bonner to discuss the movies of Summer 2017.  For the convenience of my legions of fans, they have also graciously allowed me to post the entire hour-long show here on my feed.

We canvassed many of the movies of Summer 2017, including: Dunkirk, Baby Driver, War for the Planet of the Apes, Cars 3, Despicable Me 3, Wonder Woman, and Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Listen so you can make an informed decision as to which to drop your hard-earned cash on (if any).

Enjoy, and then go watch some movies!
