So now that the Oscars are here, you heard about all of the Best Picture Nominees but are any of them actually worth seeing?? We still aim to help you save time and "Take Back Movie Night" but this time it is through the lens of ranking the Best Picture Nominees 10-1 (there were 9 but we cheated and added 1....shhh).
Also, we asked YOU what your "favorite movie of 2017 was that DID NOT get nominated." In this episode you will hear us reference several interviews we have done including Kurt Braunohler (The Big Sick), Hayden Szeto (The Edge of 17), and Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya). You can find those older episodes in our library and be sure to look for next weeks episode which is an interview with Sam Humphrey of The Greatest Showman!
Thanks to Jameson from Portland, the guys were able to watch and choose "Band of Robbers" as the Movie Night Pick of the Week! It is a DEEP Netflix find which is what Down the Hall is all about! Also in this episode it's Rodney vs Lyndon in "Band or Gang?" Plus we discuss YOUR answers to "Hollywood Bromances."
