Brian's Exploratory Christmas Endeavor '19: It's a Wonderful Life

I spoke about this movie on, I believe, the first Christmas special episode of the podcast we ever did, and I was enthusiastic about it at the time. I’ve only become more fond of it since then. Why bring it up now?

There’s a 4K release now.

GBU Season 2, Episode 16: The Lighthouse

This time around we look at Robert Eggers’ sophomore picture, The Lighthouse, starring Willem Defoe and Robert Pattinson. It’s an absolutely crazy picture. Some are calling it the best film of the year. What did we think? Actually, our opinions were pretty divided!
