Episode 67: I’m CEO, Bitch

Episode 67 - I'm CEO Bitch
It’s been seven years and it’s still not okay. On February 27th 2011, we watched in horror as The King’s Speech took home the Oscar for Best Picture at the 83rd Academy Awards. An Oscar that belonged to David Fincher’s The Social Network – right?!

Well you guys voted, and so in Episode 67 we revisit the woes of a generation to see if this once perfect movie has stood the test of time, and still remains the one true winner.

00:00:00 – 00:02:14 Introductions

Episode 66: Favourite Movies of 2017

best-of-not-2017
Happy new year, all listeners across the universe!

We are back with new topics, fresh ideas and some heavy duty motivation! Still with us are a few technical issues, which we again apologise for. It seems that getting a connection across the universe sometimes comes with static. But no technical issue is going to stop us from wrapping up 2017!

Our first episode of this year starts off with two important questions, who did we crush on in 2017 and what movie are we looking forward to in 2018. The main discussion of the episode focuses on our top 3 favourite movies of 2017, that were not released in 2017. Some of us go with a theme, one of us breaks the rules a little, and the discussion heats up when we get to our most favourite movie we saw last year. So sit back, listen to us ramble, and enjoy our favourite songs from 2017 in between!

Structure:
00:00:00 – 00:03:03 Introductions
00:03:04 – 00:20:35 Our Biggest Crushes in 2017 and The Most Anticipated Movies for 2018
00:20:36 – 01:06:28 Main Discussion: Top 3 Pre-2017 Movies We Saw Last Year
01:06:29 – 01:13:14 Plugs and Goodbyes

Songs:
Woman, by Harry Styles (Getter’s pick)
Go Go, by BTS (Nik’s pick)
Greenlight, by Lorde (Sofia’s pick)
Across the Universe, by Scorpions
