Something Old:

Josh’s: Iron Giant

Skye’s: Groundhog Day

Something New: Boss Level

Josh’s Proposal: Boss Level is an over the top, ultraviolet character flick that has enough character development to make it a great ride.

Skye’s Proposal: Boss Level works because it’s very self aware and doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Something New: Derek DelGaudio’s in & of Itself

 

Josh’s Proposal: I propose Derek DelGaudio's in & of Itself (cause that’s the title, by the way) will only payoff for the willing few.

 

Skye’s Proposal: I propose that Derek DelGaudio's in & of Itself reveals that we are so desperate for affirmation that we will cry over it, even when we know it’s BS. We are a culture so desperate for a religious experience in a secular environment.
