Alicia and I sit down and go through or best and worst movies of the year. This time we have our own list and we talk through what we saw was worth seeing and a few honorable mentions as well. We think this was a really average year but there was absolutely some gems and trash that came out
Alicia and I were moved to see this film on Netflix by the reviews and the Golden Globe nomination of Mary J. Blige. An interesting movie we initially thought was a typical southern white family story aligned beside a southern black family in the 1940's. But this movie showed an amazing directorial process and interpretation of the book "Mudbound" by Hillary Jordan by Dee Rees.

On this episode, Alicia and I binge watch the new Netflix series by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, Mindhunter. This psychological series about the FBI behavior science unit gets us in to the mind of the FBI agents that tried to figure out the deviant behaviors of these killers. A slow but well worth it series.
In the late 1970s two FBI agents expand criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters. Mindhunter is an American crime drama web television series created by Joe Penhall, based on the true crime book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
This episode Alicia and I jumps on the Hulu bandwagon and watches the new series "The Handmaid's Tale" based on the book by Margaret Atwood (a Canadian author). A crazy alternative society that enslaves women and have a certain set of women used to bear children for the rich oligarchy. We wanted to see this series because of the strangely relevant way we see this can happen due to the disrespect women are receiving from men in power. Whether its the business sector or the government.
