Episode Notes

In one of the grab-baggiest grab-bag episodes we ever done, we recount two weeks of news and experience, starting with the death of Gene Wilder, a beloved actor who has certainly done plenty to shape both of our perceptions of cinema. Jonathan and Sean each talk about some video games they’ve been playing – including _Hitman, Stardew Valley, _and _The Banner Saga _– while Jonathan reviews some recent (and less-recent) movies, including _Don’t Breathe, Southside with You, Hell or High Water, _and _The Nice Guys. _For our first big topic, we break down the recent _Titanfall 2 _beta, which basically took a great foundation from _Titanfall 1, _threw it out the window, and replaced it with nothing but confusion and boredom. And after recapping some news, we finish the podcast with a second topic, in which we use the recent _No Man’s Sky _kerfuffles to discuss the media landscape at large.
