Episode 47: 2014 Catch-Up Part Three!

Ready, steady, go! Jon is resolutioning off at Sundance, but somehow the J's are still posting episodes like they're not seven hundred miles apart? Wibbly wobbly timey wimey! This week, the boys talk about 'Grand Budapest Hotel', 'Only Lovers Left Alive', and 'Calvary', as well as some off-the-cuff Oscar ranting to round things off.

Meanwhile, Jon is fidgety, and maybe hates cinema? Joel gets learned on Charlie Hebdo and "that Islam stuff", and hates on bad casting and bad accents. Are self-delusions worth it if they make you happy? Are all vampires super-whiny? Will Brendan Gleeson every be nominated for an Oscar? And NERD BATTLE: 'Lego Movie' or 'How to Train Your Dragon 2', GO!! All this and more in episode forty-seven of 'Talk and Trivia, with J&J'. Enjoy.
