Minisode 21: Ex Machina

For our April Donor Pick, our Patreon supporters chose from a list of films and by a wide margin picked this stunning sci-fi directorial debut from 2015  – Ex Machina. This film is ripe with ideas for contemplation and conversation so we brought in guest host Emmanuel Noisette of Eman’s Movie Reviews to help us…

Minisode 17: Tombstone

March’s Donor Pick episode is a favorite of ours and gives us a reason to praise the late, great Bill Paxton as well.

It is also a masterwork in filmmaking and deserving of…

It is an honest look into faith, doubt, persecution, and the…
