Top 3 Disney Animated Musical Numbers (37:27)
Disney has not only been known for its animation over the years, but also the music they’ve created that make their films come alive within the animated worlds they create. Whether it back from Cinderella back in the day, to the genius work out of Beauty and the Beast, to the unstoppable force that was Frozen, Disney and musicals are one in the same. For each generation, there are Disney tunes that we all hold close to our hearts, making this a fun and rich category this week. On that note, what would be your top 3?

– 2017 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations (1:15:13)

This week we skipped any usual discussion segment and instead we talked about this year’s nominations for the Independent Spirit Awards. It may have been a lackluster year for mainstream Hollywood, but independent cinema couldn’t be more alive. This year’s crop of nominations certainly reflect that and we discussed why during this segment.

– Music

How Far I’ll go – Auli’i Cravalho
