    'The Godfather Part II' at 50

    Welcome back to Season Five! To start off with a BANG, Sophia and Nick tackle one of cinema’s greatest sequels, The Godfather Part II. Coppola returned to adapt this second film only a few months after The Godfather took home Best Picture, but this time he had demands and drama to deal with. They discuss all of this and more, including a run-through of the movie’s best scenes, their favorite shots and quotes, and how the beautiful crosscutting transforms characters and scenarios to magnify the world established in the first film. Even with 11 nominations, was the movie snubbed? You bet! Listen as they debate those, too.

    Final 2024 Oscar Predictions

    It’s almost time to hear “And the Oscar goes to…” which means Nick and Sophia will finally be sharing their Oscar predictions. Will they change before the ceremony? Only time will tell. (Yes.) Even with the beginning of the end of this awards season in sight, they start the episode by sharing their initial reactions to a film that could dominate the 97th Academy Awards: Dune: Part Two. A more in-depth episode on that is coming soon, but first they use their Mentat skills to share their Final Oscar Predictions.  As in previous years, they divide all 23 categories into groupings based on degree of difficulty: In the Bag, Toss Up (24:56), and Anybody’s Guess (41:32). They end the episode by mulling over Best Picture and answering some creative listener questions.
