Recorded before the Academy Awards ceremony this year, this week we're celebrating Best Picture winner, "Nomadland." Out on Blu-ray this week, the film both celebrates a lifestyle and condemns the institutions that force it upon some. It has to make you wonder -- why do we allow so few to keep so much for themselves and keep so many so close to the poverty line?
Out on Netflix, "Bad Trip," like "Borat," is a movie where actors go around and do things to provoke a response from people they run into. It has some exceptionally funny moments in it, but Josh can't help but watch this sort of movie and wonder about all the moments where the pranks didn't go as planned. Is he the only one?
Does Josh speak a little quickly here? If so, it's only because he has a ton of thoughts about the complicated nature of the way so many movies are coming out these days, including "Raya and the Last Dragon." The movie is great, but should you pay $30 to get it on Diseny+ Premiere Access or the same to get it on iTunes? Prime Video? Blu-ray? There are so many options!
There are any number of things that might stand out to you about this week's podcast episode, one in which we discuss the movie "Our Friend." However, we think it'll be Josh's distress at the movie being named "Our Friend" when there are very good reasons to have it named differently (as you will hear if you listen).
