Ep77: THE THEORY OF Top Ten Lists

This week, Ian and Matt talk about the surprising narrative intricacies of James Marsh's The Theory of Everything (starring recent Golden Globe nominees Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones). Also, Matt sends Ian into a mental tailspin by questioning the purpose of year-end movie lists--not the best place to wind up as voting for the Chicago Film Critics Association gets under way.

There's also a plug for Kicking the Seat's Pumping Iron contest, and a few words about the ups and downs of screener season. Things get downright cosmic on Episode 77, so strap in and listen well!

Ep74: Too Far GONE

Ep73: Son of Podgecast!

Let's face it: The KtS Podcast will likely never do a proper summer wrap-up. The fates conspire against us at every turn, and now we're jumping headlong into fall. So it goes.

This week, Ian, Matt, Graham, and Denitsa talk a little bit of everything--Soderbergh's new re-scored, black-and-white cut of Raiders of the Lost Ark; the Rapture; Arrow, Gotham (sorta); Godzilla; the Chicago Blackhawks; and God knows what else. Strap in for the terrifically tangent-tinged Episode 73!
