This episode, we tackle the 2017 Oscar winner for Best Picture: Moonlight! After the crazy ending to this year’s Oscar ceremony, this film was crowned Best Picture. We’re guessing you haven’t seen it. In fact, neither Melissa or Tim had seen it either. Still, we brought in Pat Wick, who also hadn’t seen it, to be our guest. The film is notable for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the fact it is the first film featuring an all black cast to win Best Picture. It gave us a lot to think about and we hope you watch the film and it makes you think as well.
Next up, it is time to start exploring all of the actors who have played James Bond both in the Bond franchise and outside of it! We’ll be starting with Sean Connery and Goldfinger!
