Infinite Respawncast – The Gift of Fantastic Four

Chris and Dylan gather together in-person for the last time in a while as Chris moves out to Toronto. So of course, the last podcast we do in-person is Fantastic Four, a film that we cannot discuss without bringing up all the behind-the-scenes drama. After covering some new releases, Chris discusses Woody Allen’s newest film, Irrational Man. Then Dylan proceeds to discuss Amy – the new Amy Winehouse documentary – and Ian McKellan’s take on Sherlock Holmes with Mr. Holmes. Finally, the two shower praise on Joel Edgerton’s directorial debut, The Gift, starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Edgerton.
