Episode 305: Winter Preview 2017-2018

The new movies of the season are coming!   Mikey, Pinky & Dave takes on all the films fit to know about from December to February, including those with Oscar buzz.

And in the middle of the preview, a discussion on separating film from actor when it comes to the horrible actions of those like Harvey Weinstein & Kevin Spacey.

Avoiding the conversation, coming in late, is Friend of the Show, Wit Stillman Fan, Brie Lover (Larsen, Allison, Cheese), Film Historian, Terrance Malick apologist and Nobel Prize winner for Urologist Dr Earl.

Also discussed, ...the "-has Fallen" movie series... Pinky has dyslexia... a Wes Studi bio... the quick story of Tonya Harding & Nancy Kerrigan...
