325: The Exceeded Expectations Quell 





Four Movies That Exceeded Our Expectations For Them


It's another Fighting in The War Room Quarter Quell! 


Each of your four hosts has picked a movie that lived up to, nay, exceeded their expectations, which was a tenious idea for a Quell when we picked it before the elections, but at least now we can hope the future will once again exceeded expectations. Some groundbreaking cinema, some personal stories, it's a QUARTER QUELL but in a Pandemic this time.


The movies this Quell are also streaming! Check out Citizen Kane and Ad Astra on HBO Max, The Master on Netflix, and The Avengers on Diseny+.

322 – Rebecca, Zoom Etiquette, The Trial of the Chicago 7 





This week, Katey, Da7e, and Patches are joined by returning guest Jordan Hoffman (Vanity Fair, The Guardian,
@JHoffman) since we recorded on David's birthday. Jordan, Katey, and Patches throw down about Netflix's new Rebecca, then everyone stops to make some penis jokes at a New Yorker writer's expense, then they tear into Aaron Sorkin's The Trail of the Chicago 7, with Da7e (a leftist Srokin fan) and Jordan (a man who knows the real trial's history).


Strap in, stay calm, don't write angry emails.
