‘Silence’ and ‘The Young Pope’ Review – Now Conspiring


This week on the podcast, Jon and Will got together to talk about a lot of religious entertainment material, including the new HBO series, The Young Pope, last year’s Last Days in the Desert, and then our featured review, Silence, the latest film from Martin Scorsese. Also, we kicked things off with a brief look at some 2017 movies we’re excited about that aren’t superhero flicks.

  1. The movie I’m most looking forward to is “Beauty And The Beast”. The animated version is easily my favorite movie ever, and I can’t wait to see it as a live-action. I’m also pretty excited about Episode Vlll and Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2. Oh, and Coco, of course.

  2. I’m looking forward to a lot of movies in 2016, but I’m really happy WonderStruck is becoming a movie. I absolutely adore that book and the author, who also wrote and illustrated the Invention of Hugo Cabret, which was made into a movie.

  3. I’m looking forward to a lot of movies in 2016, but the top right now is actually Cars 3. The animation in the trailer is absolutely beautiful, so hopefully the whole is just as good.
    On another note, I have begun watching all the Pixar movies in release order, and I’ll be adding a ranking on the bottom of my comment each week.
    Not to spark any arguments, but we’re do you all fall on the religious spectrum?
