– Hayao Miyazaki (5:20)
We begin the show this week by talking about some potentially great news that the legendary Hayao Miyazaki may not be retiring after all. Whether he’ll be directing more movies or taking some sort of major leadership role with Studio Ghibli, it’s very exciting that he is going to continue his craft and artistry moving forward.

– Rotten Tomatoes Controversy (11:07)
Last week there was an article circulating about Rotten Tomatoes and how easily manipulated the system is, with even some accusations saying that some critics were being paid for positive reviews. So, of course, we needed to dive into that and talk about the dualities of Rotten Tomatoes.

– TIFF Winners (29:39)
The Toronto International Film Festival is one of most prestigious film festivals in the world and it’s become a key factor when it comes to awards season. So, with the 2023 version of the festival ongoing, we wanted to talk about our favorite winners of the People’s Choice Award. There are some incredible films on that list, many of them nominated for Best Picture, and it was fun to loosely talk about what makes these movies noteworthy.
