Podcast Episode 9: We Are One Global Film Festival, Homecoming, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, Monos, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian and a lot of news

We sat down to talk about movies, but we couldn’t start different than commenting on the crazy and sad world we all live in right now.

There was so much film and TV news to talk about, that we lost the track of time. We also managed to talk briefly about what have we’ve been watching and when it came to full reviews, we had another hour of those.
