zjlrbiguk7buduuh4y68

Welcome to the 37th episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast!

We’re back for another episode, and with that, we come equipped with our most well-rounded pop culture episode yet. In other words, I’ve finally given into Andrew’s wishes and started to talk about music too.

On this occasion, we focused on Ready Player One and Steven Spielberg’s extensive catalog of films, before talking about new music from Kacey Musgraves and Shame. We also opened up with some Fleetwood Mac talk because that’s a new stipulation in Andrew’s podcasting contract.

Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.

Saoirse-Ronan_actress_Lady-Bird_film_Greta-Gerwig_2017_movie-06

Welcome to the 36th episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! This is the final of our very belated year in review episodes, where on this occasion we’ll round up our top-10 movies of 2017 ahead of the weekend’s Academy Awards.

As Leftover Popcorn continues its slow and steady return, we won’t always be sticking to the kind of weekly posting schedule that we previously worked off, but with that comes good news. Not only will we continue to talk about everything we love (and occasionally dislike) from the world of cinema and TV, but we’ll also be branching off into wider pop culture from time to time too.

Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder are passionate and ravenous consumers of pop culture content in its various forms, and that will hopefully lead to an eclectic variety of discussions for your enjoyment over the coming months.

Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) – Rian Johnson

The latest chapter in the most talked about pop culture saga of its time arrived just before 2017 came to an end, and it left us with no shortage of things to talk about.

Rian Johnson’s film continued the famed Skywalker story by touching on the franchise’s storied past while also shaking things up significantly with his own array of bold decisions.

Better late than never, Andrew and I dive into talking about how the cinematic experience of Star Wars differs to most other films, the aspects we liked and disliked about The Last Jedi, what we see coming for Episode IX, and the prospect of Johnson’s original Star Wars trilogy.

We’ll be back soon to run through our Best of TV lists for 2017.

Boasting a cast packed full of Hollywood stars such as Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern, and directed by the man behind Dallas Buyer’s Club and Wild, it makes for fascinating viewing.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) – Rian Johnson

The sequel to The Force Awakens, and the latest canonical entry in the legendary Star Wars sage arrives later this year, with a cast comprised of familiar and new faces alike. With acclaimed director Rian Johnson behind the camera, expect the urgency of the story to step up a notch.

The Hero (2017) – Brett Haley

The Hero is an intriguing indie that will hit cinemas very soon, starring Sam Elliott as a somewhat washed up actor who’s trying to shake off the associations of his former glory.
