It's time for a crisp new episode of Saturday Morning Cereal! Take some time this weekend to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This weekend we celebrate our Independence Day with our new friends Eric Kohn (Deputy Editor & Chief Film Critic) & Ben Travers (TV Editor) of IndieWire.com to talk about that indie film spirit, the art of the summer blockbuster, and Grim Shea & Marke remember both those 4th of July big budget Will Smith, alien, superhero movies plus those smaller independent films that are, as they say, the life force of the modern movie industry.  From the arena-seated THX-enhanced gigaplex to that basement cellar college movie theater, movie fanatics have proven to love both the racket of the summer movie and the intimacy of the indie film. Because for every Six String Samurai, THX-1138, Pulp Fiction, or Ex Machina that get us thinking, there’s a Terminator, Transformers, or Men In Black there to blow our minds! Follow us on Twitter @stayclassysdcc & @MattyPradioShow
