Feb 25, 2015
In celebration of Black History Month, Leonard and Baron discuss three significant films. Spike Lee’s monumental film Malcolm X, a turkey about the Tuskegee Airmen that was made with all good intentions, and a sleeper that dates back just over 30 years called The Brother from Another Planet.
Feb 18, 2015
Continuing with the Oscar theme, Leonard and Baron discuss the movies of past Oscar winners: Emma Thompson’s knockout performance in Primary Colors, Matthew McConaughey and Nicole Kidman in a very strange movie they don’t recommend, and Denzel Washington in truly inspiring story you should seek out.
Feb 11, 2015
Leonard and Baron discuss three worthy individuals who were not nominated for an Oscar this year:  David Oyelowo of Selma, who’s equally good in another film about the Civil Rights movement, Ralph Fiennes of The Grand Budapest Hotel in an unfortunate turkey, and a sleeper from the great writer/director Mike Leigh, who brought us Mr. Turner this past year.

In part two of their 2015 Oscar nominees conversation, Leonard and Baron discuss three more films from this year’s contenders: Keira Knightley in the charming musical Begin Again, a movie about magic that sadly dropped the ball, and a sleeper from Norwegian director Morten Tyldum, who gave us The Imitation Game.
