We write and talk about movies that we care about, and sometimes ones we don't care about too much. You can find reviews, a podcast and features on some of our favorite, least favorite and most thought provoking movies here. We do this because it's fun, so we hope it's fun for you, too.  

Jacob and Jonny pick the Golden Globes

Jacob and Jonny pick the Golden Globes

Picking award shows is often the most fun part of the whole experience; particularly when talking about a show like the Golden Globes. It officially kicks off the award season, sure, but it kind of straddles the line between "mainstream" and "culture" and in so doing doesn't really appeal to anyone. 

That means picking the winners for this award show is basically impossible. I tried to stay optimistic while Jonny took the more 2016 route of assuming everything is the worst forever. He's probably the wiser of the two of us. Here goes nothing.
