#664: 2018 Movie Preview / Phantom Thread

Phantom-Thread-Review-Lawson.jpg

With the ink hardly dry on their year-end lists, Adam and Josh offer up a 2018 Preview in the form of their top 5 questions about the new movie year. Conspicuously absent from those best of '17 lists? Paul Thomas Anderson's PHANTOM THREAD. Fresh off a second viewing, the hosts give the film the lovingly in-depth review it deserves. Plus, Massacre Theatre, the return of Larsen Recommends and, in the post-credits "Hot Mics" segment, bonus thoughts on "I, Tonya" and "The Greatest Showman."
