This Week in the Movies: Nina, Gilmore Girls, Lilly Wachowski

Welcome to our first episode of 'This Week In the Movies'! We've extracted our recently watched/trailers/news segment from the beginning of each podcast and given it its own episodes! Between our regular (and irregular) episodes, you can keep up to date on what we've been watching, what we're looking forward to, and what's actually going on in the movies lately. That means our episodes will get straight into their topic with no small talk, just movie talk!
This first episode is a littler longer than we hope they will be, since we had quite a few things saved up we wanted to mention, future episodes should be under 20mins. (I say that, but, clearly, we can talk...)
