Girls on Pop – Episode 20: Get Off My (Proverbial) Lawn

We don’t know what the future of theatrical releases looks like but according to some, it’s dead and full of toxic fandom.

That said, there are movies, as proven by the number of movies Marina (@themarina) and Ashley (@ashleylynch) have been watching. This week the duo cover some of the recent movie news and share some thoughts on a wide range of new and not-so-new releases.

He’s baaaaack!

We were mostly undisturbed except for the occasional interruption to order more food and beer. Sarah and I (@themarina) managed to have a pretty long winded conversation covering everything from a bunch of new trailers to recent hints from the Hollywood establishment that they’re not too thrilled with the way Netflix is throwing their billions around.
