Episode 122 - Looper and Potential

To celebrate the pseudo-release of Midnight Special, Dave decides to tackle a great recent science fiction flick, Looper.  But first, Britt joins us once again to talk about Looper, time travel, Star Wars and the MCU.  Then, Dave talks about potential in regards to psychology, and how we can measure it.  We close off the show with a new guest, Berook from the Cinemabun Podcast! We discuss Rian Johnson brilliance and then, of course, get really confused by time travel.  Listen up!

In this episode, we are sadly sans Britt and Fangirl Fixation.  However, we still have a really interesting episode where we talk about the effects of parental imprisonment (spoiler: it's not good).  To help me discuss that, along with the movie The Town, Dave brings in J.D. from InSession Film!
