78: Top Films of 2018
Despite it being March, it is finally here! The top ten films of 2018 Contra Zoom mega episode! This episode has everything including a great co-host in Stephanie, four terrific guest spots and more films mentioned than you could imagine. On this episode, four friends of the show were asked to send in a voice mail of what their favourite film from 2018 was. Sean Chin’s favourite film was the mountain climbing documentary Free Solo Scott Murdoch’s favourite film was the Sony animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse Curtis Sindrey’s favourite film was the darkly comedic Game Night Sammy Feilchenfeld’s favourite film was beautiful black and white Mexican film Roma It is humanly impossible to see every film in a given year and below is the list that Dakota and Stephanie weren’t able to catch up with that they thought might have had potential to crack their top ten… if they saw them. Dakota- Burning, Zama, The Rider, Tea With the Dames and Blaze Stephanie- Leave No Trace, Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse, Private Life and Widows The duo also listed their honourable mentions; films that they really loved but just didn’t quite make the final list. Dakota- Isle of Dogs, Outlaw King, The Favourite, First Man, Game Night and Three Identical Strangers Stephanie- First Reformed, Game Night, Cold War and Free Solo Here are the final ten films that made Stephanie’s list: 1. Capernaum 2. Minding the Gap 3. BlacKkKlansman 4. Shoplifters 5. Can You Ever Forgive Me? 6. Vice 7. The Favourite 8. Eighth Grade 9. Isle of Dogs 10. Outlaw King Here are the final ten films that made Dakota’s list: 1. Roma 2. Capernaum 3. Cold War 4. The Death of Stalin 5. First Reformed 6. Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse 7. BlacKkKlansmn 8. Minding the Gap 9. Old Man & the Gun 10. Sorry To Bother You If you want to see a full ranking of every movie Dakota saw last year, check out his Letterboxd list and give him a follow.  Something new I’ll be asking people to do is to rate and review Contra Zoom on Podchaser, a site that aims to be the IMDb of podcasts. Please rate 5 stars and if possible leave a short review to help grow this show. Also if you have never given the show a rating on iTunes, that also helps tremendously. Every bit of exposure helps grow the show. Follow the show @ContraZoomPod and Dakota @Dgapa on Twitter. The post 78: Top Films of 2018 appeared first on LIVE IN LIMBO.
77: 2019 Post Oscars Analysis podcast
I know, it is more than a full week since the 91st Oscar’s aired, in which Green Book somehow won Best Picture over the far more deserving Roma, but Dakota and Sammy talk about the winners, the losers and how the show went.  Also joining the episode was Stephanie Prior and Scott Murdoch, who recorded their immediate reactions to the ceremony. It was a lot of fun having them both on, and with Scott’s past as a sound engineer, this won’t be the last time you hear from him on Contra Zoom! Dakota decided to throw out all five Best Actor nominees, and instead create his own list. Ethan Hawke for First Reformed Lakeith Stanfield for Sorry to Bother You John David Washington for BlacKkKlansman Joaquin Phoenix from You Were Never Really Here Tomasz Kot from Cold War While I watched it after I recorded, I would also throw Robert Redford from The Old Man & the Gun in the mix too. Rolling Stone named the Best, Worst and WTF Moments from the Oscars.  Vogue listed the 15 best-dressed attendees at this year’s Oscars.  If you missed it you can see that Dakota predicted 16 correct categories on the last episode, while Sammy only got 8 right. You can revisit that episode HERE.  Something new I’ll be asking people to do is to rate and review Contra Zoom on Podchaser, a site that aims to be the IMDb of podcasts.

For a trip down memory lane, look at the history of the types of films that were nominated and won for the Best Makeup and Hairstyling award.
