Spike Jonze, whose films include “Being John Malkovich”, “Adaptation” and “Where The Wild Things Are”, has an Oscar contender for Best Picture with his latest work “Her”. Alan & Chris give their thoughts on the film and then spend a few moments mourning the passing of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Also in this episode both hosts pick their favorites to take home Oscar statues in March. To make things interesting they even establish a wager (the loser MUST attend a screening of the lowest rated movie by Rotten Tomatoes and discuss the experience in an upcoming episode). All this plus the fellows close out the episode with their picks for films you might have missed.
