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!
Year 1 is in the books! Listen in as Chet and Rodney tell the untold truth of the fiasco that was the Rob Burnett interview. Also, they guys recap all of the movies and many guests from the past year. Make sure you stick around for the end because there is a MAJOR announcement that will impact the future of the show!
In today's show, we talk about Hollywood's top stars! ...no wait, that's not true. At one point it might have seemed like they were big stars, but those days are long gone.

They also get listener feedback on the question, "What Is YOUR Favorite Romantic Movie?"
PLUS a story of a 12 year long prank Chet has been pulling and an impromptu discussion on why we are drawn to Romantic movies in general.

In this episode, the guys are still saving you 115 hours of wasted time searching for movies but instead of 1 "movie night" pick of the week, Chet and Rodney have THREE great "summer" movies!
These are not your typical summer blockbusters. These are movies that the guys think encapsulate all the great things that summer is all about!
In this episode we are joined by Kacey Spivey, Writer/Creator/Producer for Screen Rant. Kacey also play Daenerys Targaryen (The Mother of Dragons) in Game of Thrones the Musical.
Kacey joined the show to ask the question, “Will Dude’s Watch Female-Led Comedies?”
We took a look at some of the classic female comedians who set the foundation for modern comedy (Mary Tyler Moore, and Lucille Ball), and then talked through some of our favorite modern examples of female-led comedies.
We also heard from our listeners as they shared their favorite female comedies and paritcipated in a poll:
“For the dudes out there, are you LESS likely to watch a female-led comedy? (This is a safe place)”
71% said, “I see them the same as any comedy.”
20% said, “I don’t prefer them.”
9% said, “I’m afraid to answer.”
Join the conversation! Let us know what your favorite female-led comedies are!

We are joined again by Lyndon Wells from top10films.co.uk to discuss our Top 10 War Films.

However, if you HATE "war films" then this is also for you since Lyndon, Chet, and Rodney do not typically gravitate towards them either.
Also, what makes a "war film"? Is Schindler's List really about war?
