– WGA / Golden Globes News (3:58)
Before we dive into our 2001 Retrospective, we began by talking about the WGA’s new deal with the AMPTP and ending their strike. It’s a short-term deal, but it’s one with vital protections. We also take a moment to discuss whatever the hell the Golden Globes are up to with these new, dumb categories.

– 2001 Retrospective (10:36)
As always, we begin our retrospective by talking about the year as a whole and the movies that shaped its trajectory. It’s a year full of incredible comedies. Some middling action films. A few iconic animated movies. And its movies up at the top…well, they’re all-timers.

– Top 10 Movies of 2001 (44:39)
2001 is perhaps the most underrated year in cinema history. It’s often not in the conversation for “Best Movie Year” but if you ask us, it should be. There are some profoundly stirring films up at the top. It has incredible depth. The year is well rounded with an eclectic mix of genres and types. It’s as good as any year we’ve seen in the last 30 years and has some of our personal favorite films ever made.
