On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, it's time to discuss the future of movies and television. So much has changed over the past few years, from how we consume content to what kind of content we consume. But what does that mean for the future of film and TV, where do we go from here? Holograms? 4DX screenings? More streaming channels, less cable? It's a lengthy discussion on a myriad of ideas in entertainment. What do YOU think is the future?

Also this week: our spoiler-free review of HBO Max's The Fallout, movie and TV news including fans suing for misleading trailers, Paramount moving Mission Impossible 7 and citing the pandemic, A Christmas Story gets a sequel, plus our latest game: Guess The Review.
