Infinite Respawncast – End of 2015 Debates

Next week we will have our personal year-end lists for the best and worst films of 2015. There should not be any debates, just lots of us being excited about the year in film.

The Look of Silence Review

If you were alive in 2013 (and if you’re reading this then you definitely were) and have any fleeting interest in film, you may have heard of a little film called The Act of Killing.

Infinite Respawncast – Mission Impossible: Kiss From a Rogue Nation

Sorry for the delay guys, but it’s been a hassle getting this episode together. Chris and Dylan make it the whole podcast without quoting Mission Impossible lines, which is a feat in itself.

Then him and Dylan discuss Joshua Oppenheimer’s latest documentary: The Look of Silence. What better way to switch gears than for Dylan to go into his thoughts on Man of Steel and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
