The Reel Thing: January 29, 2017

The Reel Thing for January 29, 2017

-After a long hiatus, we welcome (god damn it, WELCOME!) our listeners back with a discussion of the box office numbers over the last three weeks, including the current movie at the top, the M Night Shyamalan thriller Split. Chris and Mark go over the filmmaking career of Shyamalan and discuss his recent film (with NO spoilers FYI).

-The Oscar nominations have finally arrived, and The Reel Thing discusses the nominees at length from the major categories, including Best Picture/Actor/Actress, and talk about some of the nominees, including Moonlight, Jackie, Silence, 20th Century Women, and The Lobster. Find out if we think the Academy got their picks correct or way off base (No Deadpool but Suicide Squad got a nomination? Alrighty then).

-Last, #SIGNIFICANTDEATHS returns to discuss the recent passing of Miguel Ferrer and John Hurt.
