Well with this episode we have officially reached the last episode of the year. Director Denis Villeneuve os already known as a powerhouse director with movies like Dune and Arrival under his belt, but one of his earlier movies often feels overlooked. Generally loved by most who have seen it, Prisoners just doesn't seem like it reached the huge audience it deserved. Today I sit down with former guest Brandon Prosek as we look at one of Denis Villeneuve's hidden crime masterpieces Prisoners.

The MCU at this point is so big that no ones list of their favorites looks the same. However I am willing to bet that in most people's list Thor: The Dark World is somewhere near the bottom. I personally never agreed with that opinion and for the first time I have two guests on the show who feel the same. Returning guest Seth Decker and Aerin Moriarty hop on the show to give a retrospective look on this maligned sequel and discuss how it may be perceived differently after Loki received his own Disney Plus series.

Slasher movies have never really been my jam. They always felt predictable and repetitive so I mostly avoided them. There were some stands outs like Scream but for the most part its a blank space in my film history. Today's episode sets out to correct that as J.D. Martin convinced me to watch one of the more interesting films in one of the bigger slasher franchises. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. This was a major turning point for the Friday franchise and one of the many I had never seen from this franchise. J.D. puts the movie in a perspective that I can relate to as he tries to convince me that slashers can in fact be awesome. J.D. also has two podcasts of his own, Comics Quest and Fables and Reflections.

Well it's the holiday season and everyone has Spider-Man on the brain! With Marvel looking to drop it's biggest Spider-Man movie yet this week, I decided to take a look back at the LAST time there was a third Spider-Man movie. The Sam Raimi, Toby Maguire starring Spider-Man 3. Before Andrew Garfield donned the mask, and before sequels weren't allowed to have numbers anymore, Spider-Man 3 was once the most expensive movie ever made with the most "meh" reception. So today I sit down with guest Trayvon Mack as we discuss Spider-Man 3's lackluster approval at the time, and how it may be perceived now.
