 RiaW #379: La La Land review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:29:17

It's Oscar season and this year's heavy favorite is the original movie musical, La La Land. We've got a big ol' pile of conflicting feelings about it, including a hole lot of saltiness about the writer/director being younger than us.But we manage a pretty fair, far-ranging conversation from "what they did with color theory is amazing" to "WHAT WAS THAT DESSERT???" Hope you enjoy!

 RiaW #378: 50 Shades Darker (movie) review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:23:16

 RiaW #378: 50 Shades Darker (movie) review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:15

Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey are back to continue their training video on what an abusive relationship looks like. They have sex and fight and have sex and fight and have sex and a helicopter crashes and then get engaged. They also have sex at a party and don't wash their hands before returning to the party. It's the worst thing.

 RiaW #377: Heat (1995) review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:53

It's a super bummer, but Chris and Tanya are stepping down as regular hosts (don't worry, they'll be back as guests from time to time) because they're adults with real lives. But before they do, the team is all here for ONE LAST JOB.Hopefully, unlike the movie Heat, the Smiths won't kill a bunch of civilians in a shootout in the middle of the street and be super shitty to women all the time.

 RiaW #376: The Young Pope reviewed | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:25:00

This Pope is young. I mean, not super young. He's not Kid Pope or anything. Actually, hang on just a second I just had an idea I need to go pitch to a couple networks....Whew, I'm back. Kid Pope was already in development from on another writer.Anyway, Jude Law is a young pope and nobody can figure out what he's thinking, not even us. Is he cool like Cool Pope? Is he lame like most other popes? Does he drink Cherry Coke Zero for a reason or is that just awkward product placement? We try to figure all this out in today's episode!

 RiaW #375: Sherlock Season 4 Review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:15:26

We've loved Sherlock since the beginning, but there have been occasional moments of doubt. Season 4 has gotten some doubt-filled reviews, so we jumped in not entirely sure what to expect.An expert panel never before assembled, we talk about which parts of Sherlock Season 4 stand up to scrutiny and which aren't. And one podcaster isn't as synical as they seem.

 RiaW #374: Monster Trucks (2017) review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:22:39

It's the movie that lost Paramount over $100 million before they even released it!It's the movie pitched by a 4-year-old!It's the movie that terrified the test audiences and had to be almost completely re-shot.It's Monster Trucks!It's also a movie with a decent cast that isn't used very well and a couple of genuinely funny moments, though not enough to save it. But if you go in with low enough expectations you might actually be able to enjoy it.

 RiaW #373: Rogue One reviewed | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:40

When we went to see Episode 7 last year, we signed a death pact with Disney, one that said that we're going to get a new Star Wars movie every year until long after we're all dead and the Earth is a burnt-out wasteland. Rogue One is Disney delivering on that deal.It's not bad, obviously. It might even be good. But it's also got some weirdness that we can't help but talk about, so dive into this episode. In order to play it, you just need to press the giant master switch in the middle of the field.

 RiaW #372: New Year's Eve (2011) review | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:10:41

It's New Year's Eve 2011 in New York City and a mysterious infection has struck 40 or so low-level movie stars, forcing them to be in a film whose whole premise is that New Year's Eve is super important.The ensemble cast sleepwalks through two hours of wacky NYE plots including "future lovers stuck in elevator" and "cooks who look like they've never touched food before." In the end, it's 2012 and a real shame the world didn't end.
