The Big Short

If a movie has you sticking around for the credits, chances are you’re looking for an answer to the question: who WAS that? Every year the movies introduce us to someone – or something – we’ve never seen before. Adam and Josh share their Top 5 Discoveries of 2015 – among them: "Anchorman" director Adam McKay, great director? Lots of debate on that one during their review of THE BIG SHORT starring Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt. Plus, Larsen Recommends CHI-RAQ.

This episode is brought to you by MUBI, Harry's (code FILMSPOTTING) and Vermont College of Fine Art MFA.
