This week the gang is discussing a movie that no one was particularly excited about; Space Jam: A New Legacy. And its biggest proponent, Ify Nwadiwe, had the audacity to not be available to record this episode. But producer Casey fills in and does his best to speak on his behalf and the behalf of all those who have a nostalgic soft-spot for the original film. Plus, the crew answers a question from the ‘Hotline’ about movies that they can no longer watch because of real-life events. And, as always, there’s ‘Staff Picks.’
In news, Nicolas Cage is done with studio films, the director of the new Anthony Bourdain documentary uses AI to artificially recreate the late chef’s voice, and Spike Lee messes up the Palme D’or announcement at Cannes.
