Episode notes

The Harder They Fall

YEEHAW! It’s Western week ’round these parts! That’s why we’re discussing the new film ‘The Harder They Fall.’ And we are joined by a real scholar of the Western genre, the writer and director of such films as ‘The Ballad of Lefty Brown’ and ‘Dead Man’s Burden,’ Jared Moshe. Plus, we hear from our friend Jordan Crucchiola about her new Maximum Fun movie podcast, Feeling Seen. We’ve got another installment of the ‘Christmas Zaddy Christmas Movie Minute.’ And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Vin Diesel sort of extends an olive branch to The Rock, Patty Jenkins’ ‘Rogue Squadron’ is delayed indefinitely, and the Foo Fighters are making a movie.
