This week’s featured film is John Sayles’ beautiful western drama Lone Star. For our science fiction season, we caught up with Holly Conrad to talk about her incredible Mass Effect costume project and old school special effects. Table Time sees Luke impressed by The Hard Times of RJ Berger, and Conor won over by the giddy enthusiasm of Amy Poehler in Parks and Recreation. Question time looks at some Dudebros thoughts on what video game remakes we’d like to see, and what franchises we’d like to see revisited.
