Episode 43: 2014 Catch-Up, Part One

Screw that '2015 Resolutions' and 'Looking Forward' nonsense. This week the J's look back with regret on all the films they missed last year, and try to forgive themselves by watching a few of them. Among the chosen few: 'The Babadook', a terrifying film based on a pop-up book by Jennifer Kent; 'Blue Ruin', a retelling of 'Winter's Bone' with more guns and less J-Lau; and 'The One I Love', a "romantic comedy".

Plus, productivity breakthroughs! Woo! No picture books? Awww... And complete cluelessness about  'The Woman in Black 2'. Yaay! Chills and thrills are things you might feel, if someone was sliding a frozen tarantula down your spine. IT'S EPISODE 43 OF TRIV AND TALKERY. It's all yours, Joel, take it away...
