On this episode, I am joined by fellow Smug Film contributors John D’Amico and Harry Brewis. We discuss the merits of vertical videos, death in film, Man of Steel, and much more! We also introduce a new segment called ‘Old, New, Borrowed, Blue’, and as always, take a quick break for a movie joke by comedian Anthony Kapfer, and then close the show with questions from our mailbag.

If you have a movie-related question you’d like answered on the show, leave it in the comments or email us at
