Alex and Phil play catch up with reviews of every film they saw over the Holidays. Their discussion of The Hobbit includes Alex’s take on 48 fps and why he feels Peter Jackson’s film might have been the wrong one to introduce the technology. Their discussion of Django Unchained includes a look at Tarantino’s recurring themes and a slightly differing opinion on his portrayal of violence.
