About Us

Fifth Opinion is a movie podcast - hosted by Janie Johnson, Jordan C. Johnson, Ryan Kraemer, and Zack Pesata - dedicated to dissent, discourse, disagreement, and debate. In each episode, we will choose a film that at least one of us disagrees with the others on, and/or one that at least some of us disagree with popular consensus on. Ideally, both of those things at the same time. I want to capture the drama, friction, arguments, and also the understanding that arise from discord among a group of people thinking critically and passionately.

We talk about the film's naturalistic cinematography, note how it is a progression from earlier slashers like Black Christmas and Halloween, and get confused about the rules of "Strip Monopoly."
