Welcome to the 18th episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! This week’s episode sees us discuss the Netflix TV series, Love, while we also look at trailers for some upcoming releases.
Leftover Popcorn is a weekly podcast dedicated to the world of moving pictures. Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder share a passion for everything, both weird and wonderful, from the world of television and cinema, and as such we’ll be discussing an eclectic mix of topics in the weeks and months to come.
The podcast itself is built with a very simple structure, with the hosting duties shared, each episode is built around a mixture of three or four regular segments. The segments rotate from week to week leaving discussion open to new releases in film and or TV, classics from both the big and small screen, broader discussions on influential figures and their work, previews of upcoming releases, and more.
Each segment is named after a quote from a movie or TV show that feature as a regular segue in our show, and hopefully will become familiar to you in time.
Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.

Before you dive in and start listening, let’s take a closer look at the subjects of this week’s main segments.
Love (2017) – Judd Apatow, Leslie Arfin, Paul Rust
Anchored by Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs, Love recently returned for its second successful season on Netflix, and remains one of the more interesting shows on TV at present.
Created by Rust, Judd Apatow and Leslie Arfin, the show challenges normative perceptions of dating, relationships and the idea of people being well-matched, while amplifying the impact that individual addictions and neuroses can have on that dynamic too.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) – Martin McDonagh
An upcoming release from the director of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri sees Frances McDormand head up an all star cast in Martin McDonagh’s latest about a hard-nosed, grieving mother who is searching for her own kind of justice.
Song To Song (2017) – Terrence Malick
Legendary filmmaker Terrence Malick has been making much more divisive movies since his return to the industry, and Song To Song promises to be no different. A meditation on young love, life and free-spiritedness, expect lots of existential voiceover and stunningly beautiful vignettes of the likes of Rooney Mara, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender in Malick’s latest.
Win It All (2017) – Joe Swanberg
Joe Swanberg returns with a new film that will land exclusively on Netflix, and even if Win It All is said to abandone some of his Mumblecore roots, it still includes the warm and familiar face of Jake Johnson.
Be sure to return next week when we discuss Jordan Peele’s Get Out and some more trailers.
