– Notes / 2018 Summer Recap (50:28)

This year’s summer movie season was absurd in its high quality, at least if you ask us. Back on Episode 272 we talked about our expectations for the summer, so we thought it would be fun to reflect back on those expectations and talk about how they played out for us.

Top 3 Films of Asian Cinema in 21st Century so far (1:05:02)
Asian Cinema is often a rich sect of cinema that we typically enjoy quite a bit. Some of our favorite films in any given year come from that region of the world. So, narrowing down three films from the last 18 years was nearly an impossible challenge, but that’s exactly why we wanted to do it. Also – some of these films we mentioned will be all-timers when it’s all said and done, and that’s worth celebrating. That said, what would be your Top 3?
