After two weeks of blizzards that leaves the city of Boston buried under snow and ice over six feet deep, a house bound and stir crazy Mike called on Dede & Charlie to talk him down from the ledge in order to talk movies. Charlie survived the dreaded "Sundance Flu" in order to report back from the fest. We talk about some of the event's most highly talked about films including Witch, Tangerine and the new Kurt Cobain retrospective Montage of Heck.
Dede sat in as a panelist for the Boston area sci-fi/genre convention Arisia. She may be the only person on earth well schooled enough to talk about both The Muppets and Seven in the same day.
Up next we talk about the S&M movie you SHOULD see this Valentine's day: Peter Strickland's The Duke of Burgundy.
We wrap things up with a few Netflix picks for these cold as balls days where it makes no sense to leave the comfortable confines of your living room.
