Episode 613: 2023's Surprise & Delights

Each year, there are the movies that perhaps are not on Mikey's, Dave's, or #XLessDrEarl's top fives or top tens, but they are still movies that surprised everyone... and delighted everyone... unexpected pleasant moviegoing experiences if you will.  

And we give our top five in this category in our annual Surprise & Delights episode... and like always, Friend of the Show, Miss Independent himself, Jeremy Burgess joins to give his fave underrated and unexpected performances as well.

First up, some chatter about movies that should be nominated for Best Picture, and a look at d$'s Christmas Gift to Burgess, the David Cronenburg film "Videodrome".

Then, the top five Surprise & Delights of the year, including Sydney Sweeney facing Reality... much love for a Sophia Coppola joint... several name drops for Jerry Butler... the differences in the movie and the 3 part series "Blackberry" on AppleTV... the year in horror... and much more.

Finally, the 2024 Burgentine's Day commences, as assignments are given from the likes of Aussie Nate... Melissa R... and the trio on the Deucecast.
