… yeah, I know, I know. But it’s December now, and the awards screenings are going full bore; I saw five movies in theaters this week and another four or five here at home. It’s a miracle I can still see straight.
But as a wise man once said: This is Christmas, Theo! It’s a time of miracles! So let’s get the holiday spirit rolling with this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie, in which actor and occasional filmmaker Brooke Nevin tackles the sugar rush that is Jon Favreau’s Elf.
Really, any conversation about Elf is going to be a blast. You’ll love it. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play and Stitcher and get the episode immediately, or gobble it up straight from the web.
And then you can get on to this week’s NOW What, in which Glenn, Kevin, Rad, Ramona and I dig into this year’s best television, and why we ranked stuff the way we ranked it. You can find the show on Apple Podcasts and Spotify (sorry, I should have added those links months ago!), and also right here at the bottom of our cover story. And then read Rad’s interview with D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, who’s doing exceptional work in Reservation Dogs. (Also, you should be watching Reservation Dogs.)
There’s not a lot of other stuff this week, as I’ve been swimming in those aforementioned year-end screenings for the upcoming holiday movie issue, and doing some other stuff that’ll be published in January. But here’s Friday’s What to Watch page, which is stuffed with the reviews you need to make good decisions. I hope it’s not too late.
