While we take a break from our weekly episode for the holidays, we offer up a compilation of some of the more popular topics from earlier this year. Disaster movies, despicable characters, movie monologues, and even a little love! We cap the episode off with an extended helping of outtakes. Enjoy! 

The topics discussed on this compilation episode of The Hollywood Outsider Movie and TV Podcast:

  • Disaster Films - Why do we love them?
  • How far can a character go before you can no longer sympathize with them?

  • Movie Monologues - We discuss some of our favorites...and even try our best to recapture them in spirit!
  • We end the episode with an extended collection of outtakes
