    Fun podcast! I’m going to ignore Kristen’s comments about Magnolia, though I do agree about PTA in general (especially The Master!). I haven’t read up on a lot of 2018 films, so this episode was helpful. My #1 in the near future is Blank Panther, which I plan to see opening weekend (a rarity for me these days). I have mixed feelings about the book Annihilation, and the trailer didn’t give me a lot of hope for it. I did like Ex Machina a lot. I’m also excited to see A Wrinkle in Time because of Ava DuVernay, and the preview looked cool. There are a lot of sequels that don’t excite me (Jurassic World, Pacific Rim, and so many more), so it’s going to be an interesting year.
