Justin's back and the Oscars are just a little over two weeks away, so I'm still cleaning up some of the Oscar flicks I hadn't had the chance to see last year with reviews for Loving and Nocturnal Animals. Justin had the chance to check out John Wick 2, and for our feature review this week we're talking about The Lego Batman Movie.
Also this week, we've got some voicemails built up in Fanviews so we'll spin some of those late in the show, and we've got another great Kate Winslet clip as our February Featured Actress. We've got tons of your feedback in Thumbs of the Week as well! Loads of fun lie between here and the Oscars and we've got a super-packed March to look forward to at the theater. Thank you so much for listening! We'll see you at the movies!!
