We all knew La La Land was going to be the film to beat at the Academy Awards, but who could have predicted it would earn the most Oscar nominations in history? This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani take a close look at what the success of La La Land says about Hollywoodland, what the failures of the Razzies are doing to our standards and whether the new releases Split and xXx: Return of Xander Cage are the films we need in a particularly perilous January.
Also this week, Bibbs and Witney consider the deeper meaning (if there is one) of the new title Star Wars: Rogue One, a bold new hope for the future of the Terminator series and the career of the late, great character actor Miguel Ferrer.
