Dean Haglund is flying back to Australia right now, but before he left Los Angeles, he dropped by a certain historic building to visit Phil Leirness and to discuss the lives (and deaths) of Sharon Jones, Gwen Ifill, Florence Henderson, Ron Glass and Fidel Castro. Dean and Phil also compare notes on a great stand-up comedy performance they witnessed at The Los Angeles Breakfast Club. Speaking of stand-up, Dean performed stand-up at Big & Tall presents BARK, while Phil was attending a media preview of The Queen Mary’s CHILL and all these events get described. A hilarious discussion of the new “4D” method of exhibiting films leads your friends in podcasting into a free-wheeling discussion of such movies as “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, “Jackie”, “Hidden Figures”, “Nocturnal Animals”, “La La Land”, and “Rules Don’t Apply”. We’ve received a lot of great feedback and messages from listeners of late, and one such message involves the topic of diversity on television, a question Dean and Phil tackle briefly before setting it on the agenda for next week’s show …

That documentary was the much hyped big screen debut of British documentary filmmaker, Louis Theroux working with producer Simon (Searching for Sugarman, Man on Wire, The Imposter) Chinn and it would go on to be the highest grossing documentary in the UK in 2016.

Maybe you're old enough to remember the JFK assassination but for those who aren't there's a new film about that historical moment called "Jackie." It stars Natalie Portman as first lady Jacqueline Kennedy dealing with a country reeling from the event as well as her own feelings. It's certainly an interesting premise for a movie so Neil Rosen, Bill McCuddy, Bill Bregoli and guest critic Jack Rico put it under their critical microscope. Then there's "The Eyes of My Mother" which starts out like a farmer's daughter joke and then gets much weirder. And speaking of thrillers there's the surprise hit "Don't Breathe" which made a ton of money when it came out in theaters. Finally there's Dsiney's latest live action movie adapted from an animated film - "Pete's Dragon." We've got it all: history, thrills and, of course, dragons.
On the latest edition of Cinema in Noir we will countdown of the best holiday-themed TV episodes of all time. We will then discuss the winter finale of How To Get Away With Murder. Finally, we will chat about the films we think should be on people's radars this award season.

Noah and Jonesy, dressed in their finest old lady clothes and dusty wigs, discuss the Alfred Hitchcock hit: Psycho!
Mild mannered hottie Marion Crane steals $40,000 from her employer in order to run away with her hunky fella Sam. But as paranoia and guilt get to her, she finds herself taking up a room in the Bates Motel and meets the nice-guy-but-is-he Norman Bates. What follows is a story filled with mommy issues, mystery, murder, stuffed birds for some reason, and tension that all culminates in a twist the likes of which M Night Shyamalan probably spent his teenage "special alone time" thinking about!
WIth everyone knowing how the movie ends nowadays, does the twist still pack a punch? Aren't stab wounds supposed to appear on the body where someone gets stabbed? Does the movie still deserve to be considered one of the best ever made? We'll be the judge of that.
