We're back! We're back! It has been QUITE THE MONTH since we saw you last. We missed you. And boy we missed a lot! After we talk about democracy's peril, we dig into three new movies. First, the quarantine heist comedy "Locked Down." Then it's Ralph Fiennes, Carey Mulligan and Lily James in Netflix's "The Dig." And then Nate Parker's "American Skin…
 
It's here, everyone: The annual tradition unlike any other, Dorkfest. Your hosts, Tim Grierson and Will Leitch, go over their 10 best movies of the year, and try to make sense of the most trying year of everyone's lifetime. It's our favorite show of the year. It's Dorkfest. This will be our last show until January 15: We're on an extended break unt…
 
Every year, Will and his friend and colleague Tommy Craggs wrap up the year trying to figure out the planet. This year was not any easier. Hear them talk their way through it.

It's our penultimate show: Our lighting round show to fit in all the movies left in 2020, packing them all in before Dorkfest. So strap in: LOTS of movies to get to. No timestamps this week: Just the movies. Here they are: "Wonder Woman 1984" "Soul" "The Father" "News of the World" "Promising Young Woman" "One Night in Miami" "Small Axe: Education"…
 
Only three shows left, counting this one, until Dorkfest. That's right: You've almost made it to the end. We start with the acclaimed "Minari," and then hit two Meryl Streep movies: Ryan Murphy's "The Prom" and Steven Soderbergh's "Let Them All Talk." And then the fourth "Small Axe" movie from Steve McQueen, "Alex Wheatle." Timestamps (approximate)…
 
Hey, Episode 250! That's awesome! Though Episode 250 comes the week of Warner Bros' shocking decision to release their entire 2021 catalog on HBO Max, which sure does change the way we talk about movies. Or does it? We break it down. Then, Oscar time! Big Oscar contenders "Nomadland," from Chloe Zhao, and "Mank," from David Fincher, lead the week. …
 
Hey, you made it out of Thanksgiving. Well, we hope so, anyway. So, more Oscar stuff! Big Oscars frontrunner "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," with Viola Davis and the last screen performance from the late great Chadwick Boseman leads us off this week. Then we have the second Small Axe film from Steve McQueen, "Lovers Rock." And we close it out with a Da…
 
Every year for, jeez, about a decade now, on a variety of different podcasts, author and podcaster Jeb Lund has joined Will to talk about the state of the world, and stuffing, on Thanksgiving. This is this year's conversation. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks to Dylan Mayer and My Friend Mary, both of which are wonderful, for the music. We hop…
 
It's getting to be the time of the year when GOOD movies start coming out. It's Awards Season! Even a pandemic, there are Awards Movies. Three excellent ones this week. The first movie of Steve McQueen's "Small Axe" anthology, "Mangrove." Then, the Riz Ahmed addiction drama "Sound of Metal." And the very upsetting Romanian documentary "Collective."…
 
Hey, it's a Grierson and Leitch/People Still Read Books crossover episode! Melissa Maerz is a longtime entertainment journalist--she's one of the founders of Vulture--and one of the smartest pop culture minds working. And "Alright, Alright, Alright: The Oral History of Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused" is a terrific, engrossing read, a testam…

Vance's memoir "Hillbilly Elegy." Then it's the Kate Winslet-Saoirse Ronan romance "Ammonite." And hey, wanna see Vince Vaughn play a teenage girl? Here's "Freaky."…
 
Hey, the election happened! It took a while, but ... wow, we voted that lunatic out. Tim and Will talk about that, and also new movies "Let Him Go" (with Kevin Costner and Diane Lane) and "Proxima" (with Eva Green and Matt Dillon). Then, in our Reboot section, we get gross with David Cronenberg's 1986 horror film "The Fly." Bundle-Fly! Timestamps (…

It's getting late in the year, which means (gulp) Election Day is almost here, but it also means the movies are starting to (finally) get a little bit more interesting. First off, we have the big Aaron Sorkin Netflix film "The Trial of the Chicago 7," with Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, Michael Keaton and a cast of thousands. Then we have Spike…
 
It is always a special day when Don Hertzfeldt releases a new film. One of our favorite filmmakers and artists released episode three of his World of Tomorrow series, and we dig deep into it. It's so great. Two other new movies, both interesting in very different ways: Radha Blank's "The 40-Year-Old Version" and the striking documentary "Time." The…
 
So, QUITE ANOTHER NEWS WEEK. Anyway, as our "president" can't seem to keep himself isolated even though he has an infectious disease, we talked about some movies so we didn't have to talk about THAT. Three new big ones. First, Sofia Coppola is back with Bill Murray in "On the Rocks." Then it's Julie Taymor's look a Gloria Steinem, in "The Glorias."…

First, it's Sean Durkin's "The Nest," with Jude Law and Carrie Coon. Then it's the star-packed "The Devil All the Time," with a lot of actors who play superheroes in other movi…
 
So. Now we know (kind of) how "Tenet" did at the box office, and (kind of) how many people saw "Mulan" at home. The world of movies has never gone through anything like it's going through right now. Can it survive the pandemic? What does the future of moviegoing look like? Will and Tim, with no new movies released this week, sit down and try to fig…
 
Is it the biggest movie weekend of the year? No question, right? We've got "Tenet!" We've got "Mulan!" We've got Charlie Kaufman's "I'm Thinking of Ending Things." What a freaking weekend.

Back to normal? Well, not quite, not even close, actually, but we DID go to the theater to see movies this week. (Grierson went to a drive through, which still counts.) Yes, what we went through for "The New Mutants." We also discuss the return of Bill and Ted in "Bill and Ted Face the Music," and then dance along with Armando Iannucci's "The Perso…
 
People are going back to theaters! Well, not really, but there ARE some theaters open, and there ARE new movies playing in them. What do we think about that? Find out, and also find out what we think of "Unhinged" and "Tesla." Then, in our Reboot segment, we discuss the 1962 horror movie "Burn, Witch, Burn!" Timestamps (approximate): 13:05 "Unhinge…
 
Hey, Cardinals baseball returned this weekend. That helped. We also saw some movies. Two new movies: First, the Apple TV documentary "Boys State."

Back to new movies! And some fascinating ones. First, the Amy Seimetz horror-drama "She Dies Tomorrow." Then it's Seth Rogen in "An American Pickle."

Timestamps (approximate): 12:30 "She Dies Tomorrow" 34:52 "An American Pickle" 49:55 "La Llorona" Thanks to Dylan Mayer and …
 
No new movies this week, so, cool: It's a mailbag show! We talk about watching movies during quarantine, how movies illuminate this cultural moment, what films best represent us and many, many other things. We love doing this show once a year or so. It's your questions. They're so great! Then, in our Reboot segment, we look at Jeremy Saulnier's "Bl…
