Brian Raftery on his new book 'Best. Movie. Year. Ever. : How 1999 Blew Up The Big Screen'

Author Brian Raftery talks with us about his new book, which makes the case that 1999 was one of the best years in movie history. Office Space. Three Kings. Rushmore. Being John Malkovich. Eyes Wide Shut. Magnolia. The Matrix. The Blair Witch Project. Yep, '99 wasn't just pagers, portable CD players, and Y2K – there was a lot of groundbreaking, influential movies.

The book is meticulously researched - featuring interviews from pretty much every person who was making movies back then. Brian joins us to talk about a few of these movies, the careers those movies launched, the way studios marketed them, and the impact they've had on film, 20 years later.

You might not be able to rent these movies at your nearest Blockbuster, but you can buy Brian's new book "Best. Movie. Year. Ever. : How 1999 Blew Up The Big Screen" now.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to listen to the newest episode of 'Who Shot Ya?', drink some Café Bustelo, and leave a five star review on Apple Podcasts. This week Ricky Carmona, April Wolfe, and Alonso Duralde are talking about Mission: Impossible - Fallout. They are joined by the hilarious Brandon Johnson, who you may know from voicing Mr. Goldenfold on 'Rick and Morty.' The crew covers every aspect of the movie - the fights, the stunts, the way Angela Bassett say "plutonium." Brandon does his best to hock his collection of bootleg DVDs. Alonso, again, makes the case for his potato salad. Ricky tears Alonso a new one for not inviting him to a Die Hard screening. And April tells us about getting drunk with her mother. Plus, the gang has an in depth discussion on the career of Tom Cruise. And as always, staff picks

In news, MoviePass is not doing so hot, Paul Schrader loves Taylor Swift, and two latino and hispanic watchdog groups call for a boycott of Paramount.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - The Equalizer 2
April - Like Father
Alonso - Space Station 76
