Two decades ago, one of the greatest years in television and film occurred. Classics like Titanic, Men in Black, Liar Liar, L.A. Confidential and many others graced theaters.

M.F.A. follows Francesca Eastwood’s Noelle, a shy college art student. Attending a campus party, Noelle is raped by a suitor and her life is irrevocably altered. Finding no solace within the school or her friends, she confronts her attacker with tragic results. Noelle is horrified, yet there is something of a tangible relief in knowing that justice has effectively been served. As she summons an emerging strength within, Noelle follows a new path as an avenger of sorts. A vigilante who can punish those who have so casually destroyed lives like hers, all while a detective (Clifton Collins Jr.) nips at her heels.

M.F.A. is screenwriter and producer Leah McKendrick's first feature film, as she continues her quest to build her resume with personal projects. For this exclusive interview, Aaron sits down with Leah to discuss her path to Hollywood as an actress, struggles within the industry, and creating her own opportunities in Hollywood. The conversation then turns to M.F.A. and why this film was such a personal story for Leah, the journey to get the film made, and what she hopes her thoughtful revenge story can accomplish on the topic of rape and sexual assault debates. 

You can find more on Leah and her work at LeahMcKendrick.com and the film itself at MFAMovie.com. Look for the film to release this October.

Television has given us countless hours of drama, intrigue, and a whole lot of wonder. But sometimes, shows either leave us too soon, or they fail to address some of our biggest concerns.

This week, we take a look at those plot holes we’ve been left to ponder ourselves, rather than have them wrapped up in a neat little bow. What TV shows still haunt us as we are forced to accept we will never have true closure? These are the greatest unsolved mysteries in television.

Also on this week’s podcast: Miami Vice and The Karate Kid hop onto the nostalgia train, studios vow to fight Rotten Tomatoes, reviews of Kidnap, The Dark Tower, The Sinner, and much more!

Music gives a movie rhythm.  From the beats of a score to hum of the drum, music sets a movie in motion.

On this week’s show, we debate the greatest original title songs in film history. These were songs written specifically for their respective film, and sharing their name as well. What is the greatest title song? Ghostbusters, perhaps? How about Beauty and the Beast? Everyone loves Purple Rain. And never count out Against All Odds.

There are hundreds of movie title songs, but this week, we will put the set list to the test as we determine which one is the greatest in film history – THIS is the Original Title Song Movie Battle Royale!

Also on this week’s podcast: IMAX shows 3D the door, another button-pushing show is coming to HBO in Confederate, reviews of Ozark, Cut Shoot Kill and The Emoji Movie, and much more!

To pay respects to Mr. Romero, we will pay homage to the genre he created, the zombie film. Romero wasn’t the first director to take on the undead in this form, but he was the one who popularized it by setting his horde against the backdrop of societal and systemic issues plaguing us at that time. We discuss the evolution of the zombie craze, its oversaturation, and why it seems to have stuck along far longer than anyone expected.

Also on this week’s podcast: Doctor Who gets a gender swap, Aaron reviews The Big Sick, John takes a look at new releases Dunkirk, Valerian, and Girls Trip, Scott offers a new What’s This Movie and VOD release dates, and Stump the HO makes a triumphant return!

After our normal episode, stick around as we discuss our thoughts on the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere!
