A couple weeks removed from the Oscars, there isn’t much in the way of relevant movie news, but somehow our heroes soldier on, defeating minor issues like dire sickness and a limp set of news stories to find incredible nuggets of filmic truth in Episode 23 of ProjectionCast, which finds NP Awards Pundit/Senior Critic Jason McKiernan fighting off the flu while NP Founder Christopher Misch and Director of Media Dan Tucker offer their support.
Topics of conversation: Tim Burton’s Dumbo, the merits (or lack thereof) of a Ghostbusters franchise, the uselessness of Zoolander 2, the problems with Cinderella, the excitement of the upcoming SXSW Festival, the gonzo craziness of White God, the mid-February fun of Focus, and the *Ultimate* Neill Blomkamp debate (spoiler alert: there are M. Night Shyamalan comparisons).
