    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.

    Josh’s Proposal: Soul is another home run for PIXAR but PIXAR is gradually shifting away from their audience. Kids.
    Skye’s Proposal: What’s remarkable about Soul is it’s a Disney movie that dismantles the false Disney Gospel, but leaves nothing in it’s place.
    Yong Duk’s Proposal: Soul is like ordering French Toast, it looks amazing, smells amazing, but tastes pretty plain.

Great movie podcast

Good thoughts on movies delivered in an entertaining way. I don’t always agree with the “proposals,” but their conversations always intrigue me about the movies they’re talking about.
I appreciate that you are willing to go into “spoilers” for the sake of a good conversation. It may not be how everyone likes to watch movies, but I enjoy them more if I know a bit about the plot before going in.
My only critique is that it’s too short! I would love more in depth thoughts about the films.

A fun listen!

A really interesting format on talking about movies. If not sure where to start, look for a movie that you have seen and listen to that episode, spoilers ahead!
