How many 2016 movies did you mean to watch but never got around to it? In this week’s episode, we discuss movies from last year we only recently saw for the first time. We also talk about movies we rewatched and if our opinions changed at all.
We start all the way back in January 2016 with movies like The Revenant and Kung Fu Panda and finish with the end of year Oscar Nominees like Hidden Figures, Moonlight and La La Land.
With the New Year comes new changes to our podcast. Jon Negroni is starting a new podcast called Cinemaholics, leaving Maria as the new host of Now Conspiring. Not to worry! We are all still here, talking about our silly lives and all the things we love about movies. This week, Adonis tells everyone about the new play he is in and the gang discusses the main Oscar Nominations and who they think will take the golden statue home.
Question of the Week: What is your Oscar pick for Best Picture?
And we’re back. The Now Conspiring hiatus is over, and we have a lot to talk about, like how much we like (and dislike) some recent movies and TV shows. Arrival, Moana, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are all highlights, but as always, Sam talks about something I’ve already forgotten about.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Did you watch Doctor Strange and if so, did you like it?
Let us know your thoughts (and your favorite podcast moments) in the comments, which we may read on next week’s show!
