François Truffaut once said that "Film lovers are sick people." He may have been on to something.

Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 111 - Autumn/Winter 2015 Preview
Autumn means a number of things. The leaves are changing colour, kids are back in school, and movies are about to get good again. A tradition as old as time itself, or at least as old as 2012, this episode finds Matt and myself talking about the films we are looking forward to between now and December 31st. In addition to big hitters like The Martian, The Hateful Eight, and Oscar Isaac and Domhnall's Gleeson's follow-up to Ex Machina, we take some time to talk about smaller offerings like Room, Bone Tomahawk and Carol, offer our thoughts on upcoming TV shows, and try our hardest not to get sidetracked by proposing sequels that Ridley Scott could make instead of one for Prometheus. We are at least 60% successful in that endeavour.
Incidentally, I can't be the only one who is disappointed that Bone Tomahawk and Carol are separate movies, right? Who wouldn't want to watch Cate Blanchett and Kurt Russell team up to hunt cannibals? Communists, that's who.
