We’re over the moon to talk about…the Oscars 2022 nominations! That’s right, we open this week’s show with a brief reaction to the Academy’s nominations, including all the snubs and nice surprises. We then blast off for our review of Moonfall, Roland Emmerich’s new space disaster movie starring Patrick Wilson, Halle Berry, John Bradley, and other actors who probably regretted showing up to the casting call. We then discuss Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car, a Japanese drama and awards-favorite that was recently nominated for Best Director and Best Picture at the Oscars. We then finish the show by reviewing The Fallout, a teen drama on HBO Max starring Jenna Ortega and Maddie Ziegler.
