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

silence

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.

Question of the Week: Which 2017 movie are you looking forward to the most?

It’s that time of year again for the Now Conspiring podcast to count off their favorite movies of 2016! There were a lot of great movies to pick from and some obvious overlap here and there (aside from our Top #1 picks), so sit back and relax as we reflect on our most enjoyable cinematic experiences of the year.

We also recorded a Bonus Rogue One episode this week, which you can stream directly here.

Question of the Week: What was your favorite movie and/or movie moment of 2016?

Every Epic Movie Coming In 2017 (With Trailers!)

COCO

The best and biggest movies of 2017 are coming sooner than you might think. Here’s a quick guide to all of the ones we’re most excited about…and some we’re not so excited about.

I’ve been off the grid for two weeks on holiday, but I did manage to squeeze in this comprehensive list for Heroic Hollywood this past week. In it, I cover each movie, its trailer status, and whether or not it will be any good. Plus, I provide some insight on whether or not you should catch up on other movies, shows, and reading in order to get the most out of these releases.

You can check out the full guide and more here on Heroic Hollywood.

For 2017, I’ll be continuing more weekly shows, write-ups, and videos here and elsewhere. The Now Conspiring podcast comes out on Mondays, I have a weekly editorial for Heroic Hollywood on Tuesdays, my Facebook Live show “Pixar Detectives” hits Super News every Wednesday at 7pm pacific time, a new video or Snarcasm comes out on Thursdays, and my weekly movie reviews arrive on Fridays.

Here’s to a great year of snark, film analysis, amateur videography, surreal podcast moments, and as always, conspiring!

 

 

The Ultimate Pixar Halloween Costume

 

This was a blast and a half. On our latest episode of Pixar Live, you guys helped Kayla Savage and me come up with the ultimate Pixar halloween costume. And we’re totally going to do next week’s show dressed as these characters (the winner got an awesome Incredibles shirt, of course).

We broadcast this show on Facebook Live via Super News every Wednesday at 7pm Pacific. And if you tune in and leave an awesome comment, you might win something cool related to Pixar!

The contest is over, but what do you think the ultimate Pixar costume is? We got some great ideas for both Disney and Pixar (a lot of people suggested Nightmare before Christmas). The best suggestions were pretty creative and off the beaten path, so if you have something awesome to contribute, we want to hear it.

Also, Kayla and I are open to your ideas and questions for future episodes. It’s a live show, so audience engagement is always the goal. What do you want to hear us talk about, and are there any Pixar universe secrets you’re dying to hear from us? This is your chance to let us know.

That said, enjoy this week’s show!
