A Star Is Born

A more perfect episode could not be cultivated for our guest Louis Virtel. We discuss the big hit of the fall A Star Is Born. As an added bonus, we go deep on something near and dear to the hearts of Alonso and Louis, the 50th anniversary of the release of Barbarella. Ever the Jane Fonda fan, Louis dives deep on the filmography of one of the greatest movie stars of all time. PLUS, Ricky elaborates on the oeuvre of The Wu-Tang Clan (AKA the "Wu-vre"). Alonso praises Taylor Swift. And Drea is amped on the new season of 'Dr. Who.' To finish out the episode, as always, we've got staff picks.

In news, James Gunn gets a new gig, there's a really weird profile of Drew Barrymore on the Egyptair in-flight magazine, and Richard Dreyfuss has some ideas on how to make Jaws better.

There is TOO much going on in this episode. First off, our guest is the wonderful and hilarious Alison Becker. She's here to discuss the new Kevin Hart/ Tiffany Haddish vehicle, Night School.

And Alonso is excited that he gets to use his oven. But that's not all because the crew also gets a call from film legend Lin Shaye. She is the ambassador for this year's Screamfest. She also discusses her career, work ethic, and newest projects. (And if you want hear more Lin you can listen to her on a past episode of Switchblade Sisters). She's a hoot. And last but not least, we have staff picks. Way too much for one episode.
