The Breakdown of 'The Revenant', 'The Big Short', David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Oscar Nominations, and 'One Cloverfield Lane'

It is a seeping out of the edges loaded show this week as we kick things off with reviews for two big Best Picture nominees in The Revenant and The Big Short. From there we pay tribute to two major stars we lost this past week in David Bowie and Alan Rickman. We also discuss the latest Oscar nominations, and finally discuss J.J. Abrams pulling off a huge surprise in 10 Cloverfield Lane. If you enjoy the show then please spread the love by letting more know about it.
