030: Podcast Special - Normcore Oscars AKA The Selma Snub

Yesterday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its nominations for this year's Oscars, and the reaction has not been kind. Criticized as one of the least diverse Academy Awards on record, the slate of nominees is notable for the absence of hugely acclaimed Martin Luther King/Civil Rights drama Selma, which got only two nominations. (Both of which look rather like consolation prizes). In today's special edition of the Escapist movies and tv podcast, we talk about that at length, as well as the news of Fantastic Four reshoots, and we answer a listener question. Get ready for a very messy conversation about the business of show! Each week, the team behind Escapist Magazine brings you an in-depth discussion of the latest movies and TV shows.

029: Who Runs Bartertown? (Golden Globes Edition)

With the Golden Globes now behind us, awards season has officially started. And so it is that Bob and Ross spend a goodly amount of time talking up the event's winners and losers, and trying to determine if anything can be gleaned from it when it comes to Oscar nominations. They also talk about the recent rumors about Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the impending Age of Ultron trailer, the awesomeness of Agent Carter, and plenty more. Each week, the team behind Escapist Magazine brings you an in-depth discussion of the latest movies and TV shows.

028: Happy New Year (Also More On The Sony Hack)

Bob and Ross were quite pleased with the lengthy podcast they recorded just before Christmas dealing with the ins and outs of the Sony hack and the resulting hilarity regarding the cancelled release of The Interview. Then, not 24 hours after posting that discussion, Sony backtracked on its backtrack and gave that film a simultaneous video on demand and (limited) theatrical release. Whoops! Well, to celebrate the new year, Ross and Bob decided to revisit the whole Sony mess, this time with an eye on how the simultaneous VOD/theatrical release might - or might not - impact the film business over the coming years. They also talk about whether or not North Korea actually did it, the oldness of Academy voters, and some of their favorite films. Enjoy. And this time, hack the Gibson! Each week, the team behind Escapist Magazine brings you an in-depth discussion of the latest movies and TV shows.

027: Sony Hack 2 - The Sequel

Like a gift from Santa - or maybe you prefer Momus, the god of mockery - we get to end the year with a spectacular controversy full of disagreement and yet that unites everyone behind the idea that something incredibly stupid just happened. I speak, of course, about the recent hack of Sony Pictures. Mountains of private information, not to mention digital prints of certain films and a ton of intercompany email, were leaked. But the biggest story is that the hackers - the so-called Guardians of Peace - demanded that Sony cancel the release of the Seth Rogen/James Franco assasination-of-Kim Jong Un comedy The Interview, making some terroristic threats along the way. You all know what happened next (spoiler: Sony pulled the release after all the major theater chains opted not to show the film.) And now everyone is talking about delicious industry gossip, geopolitical problems, and free speech. And so are we! In this week's podcast, Bob and Ross dig deep into all aspects of the Sony hac...

026: Bob and Ross' Thanksgiving Holiday Spectacular

If you're like us, then come Thanksgiving, there's a strong chance you'll be desperately steering your relatives away from political conversations, failing miserably at that task, and sneaking off as soon as possible to guzzle booze and watch holiday specials instead. Fortunately, if you're like us, you also have a podcast. So it is that Ross and Bob, thinking ahead to your holiday well being, have recorded a special Thanksgiving/start of the Christmas season edition of the Movies and TV podcast. They talk about the roots of Christmas, both secular and not so, they talk about the need for a holiday film that reflects the modern experience more accurately, and best of all, they try to figure out just why, at least in film, Thanksgiving is the family holiday while Christmas is all about hooking up. It's thankstastic! You can go ahead and listen now, but we strongly recommend you pop this one into your mp3 player or other preferred listening device and save it for Thursday. After all, ...

025: How Marvel's Agents Of Shield Got Good

Bob and Ross had some scheduling and technical difficulties this week, and it prevented them from getting the podcast to you on Monday per usual. So to make up for it, they've put together this bonus pre-Thanksgiving podcast. This week, they talk one thing and one thing only: How and why did Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. improve so much? Prepare yourself for a deep dive into the show's uneven trajectory, the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, and where they think things may be going. Enjoy the nerding! Each week, the team behind Escapist Magazine brings you an in-depth discussion of the latest movies and TV shows.

024: Just Why Does Interstellar Suck?

Interstellar was supposed to be Christopher Nolan's triumphant return to serious filmmaking after the completion of the Dark Knight trilogy. Instead, it's been incredibly divisive and, I'll be honest, the recipient of some rather fun-to-read brutal criticism. Why? We talk about the film at length, along with a discussion of Big hero 6, the uncomfortable undertones inherent in certain comics, and the latest news, or lack thereof, regarding the Warcraft film. Each week, the team behind Escapist Magazine brings you an in-depth discussion of the latest movies and TV shows.

023: This Podcast Lives Life One Quarter Mile At A Time

The official trailer for Furious 7, the seventh film in the (hopefully) never-ending Fast and Furious series, finally dropped on Saturday. And to celebrate, Bob and Ross are joined by special guest Fast and Furious fanatic Phil Owen for a lengthy as hell discussion of the entire series. Are you hongry? YOU HONGRY? Good, because this thing is huge. Prepare for a film by film break down, a lament for the death of Paul Walker, and lots and lots of shockingly deep discussion of a series that somehow went from exploitative car culture shlock to full on superhero/spy films while only getting more awesome.

The Podcast Recorded Before Marvel Blew Our Minds

It's a funny thing, recording a podcast the day before a massive infodump from Marvel. We talked about Marvel a lot in this Podcast, DC too, but we had no idea what was coming. Even so, it's a super fun conversation that ends on a discussion of John Wick. Listen to it, memorize it, and have fun. Each week, the team behind Escapist Magazine brings you an in-depth discussion of the latest movies and TV shows.

021: This Podcast Is Full Of Spoilers. A TON Of Spoilers.

On most days, we talk a lot about rumors, confirmed rumors and just straight up spoilers on the Escapist Movies and TV podcast, but we rarely actually spoil stuff. Today is not most days. Bob and Ross talk Star Wars, Marvel, and DC rumors galore and use that as an excuse to talk about spoilers. What makes a spoiler? How long is long enough before spoilers no longer really count? And of course, are people too sensitive about them? We try to figure all of that out. Oh, we also spoil Citizen Kane, The Empire Strikes Back, The Matrix, Planet Of The Apes, and lots more. Obviously, SPOILER WARNING. Each week, the team behind Escapist Magazine brings you an in-depth discussion of the latest movies and TV shows.
