A big news section covers Orson Welles’ lost film, the state of Australian cinema and Marvel’s upcoming slate for the next 45 years.

Episode 101: Fury

Fury - Silver Screen SnobsWriter/director David Ayer gives us the tender love story of a man and his Sherman Tank in World War II movie Fury. Hilarity ensues. Between method actor shenanigans from Shia LeBeouf and Nazi stabbing action from Brad Pitt, Fury sets out to tell us that War is Hell. And then tells us again. And then a few more times. We also de-classify the S.T.A.R. labs-sized pile of DC/WB comic book film news and give you the low down on Paul ‘Travis Bickle’ Schrader and his new film.
