We may have a soft spot for epic fantasy and adventure films, but that doesn't mean that we're a complete pushover. This week, with the 1981 film "Dragonslayer" now available on 4K, we find an example of film in the genre that simply does not work for us. What it does do, however, is spark more interest in our continued conversation about power and religion.
This past weekend, "Women Talking" won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. The accolade is well deserved, as the movie is an incredibly powerful one.

Some actors find themselves, at some point in their career, having a moment. Right now, Jonathan Majors is having a moment, one that we hope continues for decades to come; that the moment becomes a long and varied and fascinating career. He not only has two movies in theaters as we release this episode, but one from last year has just arrived on Blu-ray, and that's the one we discuss today, "Devotion."
