We're on a break between seasons for a special episode featuring three fine folks from Letterboxd.com, the social media site for people who love watching movies. Mitchell Beaupre, Mia Vicino, and the inimitable Slim joined us for some games celebrating the few movies of 2022 that don't have rhymes in their titles, and lightning rounds in the coolest*, hippest†, movie categories you can think of. Are these movie-savvy Letterboxers up to the challenge? Listen and find out! *not cool †not hip
🇺🇸 The Myra Breckinridge Scorebreak. Myra Breckinridge: so that’s why we didn’t get any more Gore Vidal adaptations. [4/10: I guess we’re just forgetting about Caligula? Sounds like a plan.]

🌹 The Dainty June and Louise scorebreak. Dainty June and Louise because Momma gets married, and married, and married, and never gets carried away. [2/10: Love the show, just wish it had a different title.]
