Episode notes

Screenwriter and director Daniel Waters (Heathers, Hudson Hawk, Batman Returns, Vampire Academy) joins what he’s hoping will be a “wall-to-wall lovefest” for Bones and All, the cannibal love story starring former Ify Nwadiwe co-star Timothée Chalamet. Will one of our hosts rip his proverbial still beating heart from his chest? That’s the drama today on a very memorable episode of Max™️.

Then, we’ll have a Hotline call about favorite movie scumbags. And a Christmas Movie Minute!
