This week, we discuss one of the biggest pieces of movie news in recent months: the Sony hack and the decision to cancel the Christmas release of The Interview. Plus, Cameron and Rhea discuss the 2013 martial arts drama The Grandmaster and wonder if Pirates of the Caribbean 5 could be the breath of fresh air the series needs.

We are off for the next 2 weeks, but we will be back on January 9th with a look back at the movies of 2014 and a look ahead at what 2015 will bring. Happy holidays!

A very special thanks to Colin Anderson for engineering this week's recording.
