    Episode 4 - Pixar

    Episode 4 - Pixar

    Onward comes out this weekend, so Bruce, Jared, and Chris are talking about all things Pixar, including their favorite films from the studio, which one-off movies should get sequels, and whether or not the Academy will ever award an animated film a Best Picture Oscar among other things.

    You can find Bruce's review of Onward here.

    Also at the end of their conversation, Chris chats with Jason Dean, a self-described “digital guy” for madison.com who, for over a decade now, has been organizing DUFF, the Digital Ubiquitous Film Festival, that every one of our listeners can take part in right from the comfort of their own couch regardless of whichever state they live in.

    We'd love if you could leave us a review or tell your friends if you like what you're hearing. Thanks again and we'll see you back here in a couple of weeks!
