A film with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is a rarity. A PG-rated film that is not a kid’s movie is also a rarity. Leave No Trace managed to check both these boxes. This month’s Trailer Rewind delves into this movie about family to discover how it managed to pull off this unique feat.Listen Now
How does a film that is positioned for Oscar nominations fall off the radar so quickly? Is this a transformative performance from Nicole Kidman? Why can’t Sebastian Stan stay away from girls that are going to be trouble? We only do 1 show a month so why a hiatus? We might answer these questions on this month’s Trailer Rewind.Listen Now
A long journey with a horse . . . through brutal environments . . . and encounters with ruthless people . . . no, we’re not talking about Hostiles again.

“I’ve killed everything that’s walked or crawled. If you do it enough, you get used to it.” JJ and Steve are heading out west this month. It’s a long and grueling journey, and one of them may not make it to the end. It’s a Trailer Rewind first. This month they dig into the Saturday…Listen Now
Call the maid for turn down service, because this month JJ and Steve take on a movie that takes place in a hotel room. JJ and Steve spend time with Charlie Kaufman’s 2015 film, Anomalisa and discuss why it is an unsettling film. What is it that they find so compelling in the stop-motion animated film?Listen Now
To start off a new year of Trailer Rewind Steve and JJ sit down for a meal with John Wells’ 2015 film Burnt. This was Pete’s pick because he just loves films set in restaurant kitchens almost as much as he loves zombie films. If only there were a film that combined those two genres! Is it possible to enjoy a movie with an unlikable main character? Did Harvey Weinstein tamper too much by insisting that Alicia Vikander have a character written for her added to the script? How could Steve possibly think this was going to be like a heist film? Is Burnt about food or redemption, or both? Listen in for the first of many Trailer Rewind episodes this year that won’t give JJ a fright. (edited)Listen Now
We did it! We got to Star Wars #8 without our own Starkiller of a planet disintegrating – and what a fantastic reward we have in store for you when all of the usual suspect gang of thugs gather here to spoil the heck out of The Last Jedi. There’s so many people holding back the inner secrets of this story on social media so that you won’t get spoiled, but we fly a squadron of X-wings right in the face of that on The Film Board.Listen Now
It’s the last Trailer Rewind of 2017, and this time it’s personal. When they decided to watch Andy’s trailer pick from our Syriana episode on February 20, 2015, Steve and JJ had no idea of the impact it would have on them. Writer/director Riley Stearns has crafted a dark tale exploring loss, free will, and the decisions people make that give others power over them. This film checks all the boxes of a small independent film: character-driven story, few locations, and an important message to share. Faults is one of those rare exceptions that has found the perfect cast.
