Trash, Art, And The Movies
The podcast that pits arthouse cinema against brainless entertainment—and then declares a victor.

Paul and Erin review two films from 1997 about humans experiencing their first encounter with extraterrestrial life: Robert Zemeckis' uplifting Carl Sagan adaptation CONTACT, and Paul Verhoeven's subversive blockbuster STARSHIP TROOPERS. Plus: our quick takes on KONG: SKULL ISLAND, GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, BEST WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED, and CAMERAPERSON.
