First up, what are some of our favorite guilty pleasures? You know, those movies so bad they’re almost embarrassing to admit to the public that you love? The ones we watch under the cloak of shame and forever neglect to mention in gatherings for worry of street cred being revoked, THOSE movies.

Moving on, we debate bad movie titles and what makes the worst of the worst. Is it nothing more than just a poor choice of words, or is there a deeper problem with the titles studios sometimes choose?

Lastly, after reviews of new films like SING and Pet, we discuss in detail Season 1 of Westworld. Now that HBO’s newest juggernaut has completed its first round, what do we think of this latest science fiction opus, and are we excited for another round?

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

We’re all fans of something. It could be a television series, a classic film, or even a celebrated filmmaker. We’ve also all been in the position to question that fandom when behind-the-scenes drama rises up.

Our topic this week is what does it take to lose us as fans? What issues are so important to us that it would cause us to stop watching a TV series or a movie, or even stop following an actor or filmmaker we love?

Every year, we learn something from film and television. Maybe a movie teaches us something about society, or perhaps a TV show illustrates an entertainment we didn’t know existed, or maybe we just learned you can make an F-bomb dropping superhero and people will pay out their bum for it.

Our topic this week is what we learned from movies and television in 2016. Both hilarious and serious, it’s time to drop a knowledge grenade on the internet and hopefully you’ll learn something new as well.

Remakes are everywhere, and generally they are done horribly wrong or blandly. We even started a podcast specifically to address that in Remake This Movie RIGHT, where we remade our favorites in the mold of a film fans would like. Unfortunately, Hollywood doesn’t think that way. They want by-the-numbers retreads and name recognition. Everything is a brand now, if it’s identifiable, it could sell. If not as a movie, as a TV show. And nothing is sacred.

Well this week, we are going to discuss some of our choices for what should get a remake. Not necessarily based on name, but on concepts or possibilities. If you could remake a film that maybe didn’t come together as strong as it could have been, or perhaps was a bit ahead of its time, what movie would you choose?

After our normal episode, we discuss our reactions to Marvel’s latest superhero launch, as Benedict Cumberbatch dons the cloak of Doctor Strange. Magic has finally landed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and this is our take on every aspect of our expanded galaxy.

As the real world closes in on yet another President, we decided now was the time to take a hard look at film and television and vote on our picks for the greatest President in history.

What makes a great President? Is it the strength to do what others won’t? Is nobility in the face of adversity? Or perhaps it’s simply putting the needs of the country ahead of yourself. We dive into our own political needs in entertainment as our listeners vote for the Greatest of All-Time.
