In this episode we’re going to do a deep dorking out about John Hughes’ “Sixteen Candles” with BFF of the show Peter Brown, managing editor of Assignment X.

Just in case you’ve never seen “Sixteen Candles” here’s my little summary: Molly Ringwald’s family forgets her 16th birthday amid all the chaos of her sister’s wedding planning. Also, she’s being stalked by the King Of The Dorks, Anthony Michael Hall, and she’s in love with hunky Jake Ryan, who she believes doesn’t even know she exists. Released in 1984, “Sixteen Candles” also stars Michael Schoeffling, Paul Dooley, Justin Henry and in small roles, John and Joan Cusack.

We welcome Chris Taylor, a top notch journalist at Mashable and  author of the fantastic HOW STAR WARS CONQUERED THE UNIVERSE.

What's the topic? Fandom, how it's evolving and broken, how it's working just fine and a lot like it was in the ages before social media, and how Twitter might be wrecking nerdy fandom too. 

Or maybe it's just a bunch of online noise and we're living in a nerd golden age. There's a lot to talk about so jump on in.

We’re going to review A WRINKLE IN TIME, which opened this weekend to so-so reviews and $33 million at the box office, coming in second to BLACK PANTHER, which continues its box office domination.

Directed by Ana DuVernay (who also directed the documentary THE 13TH and SELMA), and based on the beloved book by Madeleine L’Engle. The movie stars Storm Reid as Megan Murry, a middle school student whose brilliant scientist father (played by Chris Pine) has disappeared while working on a way to travel through the universe. This is not a spoiler, but four years after his disappearance, Megan, her younger brother Charles Wallace (played by Deric McCabe) and her friend Calvin (played by Levi Miller) must search the galaxy for him before something called The It (not to be confused with with Pennywise IT) destroys the universe with its negativity. Luckily, they have the help of three, ummm, beings to help them on their adventure: Mrs. Whatsit (played Reese Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (played by Mindy Kaling) and the god-like Mrs. Which (played by god-like Oprah).

We’re going to do a deep dorking out of 2000’s THE CONTENDER, written and directed by Rod Lurie and starring Joan Allen, Gary Oldman, Jeff Bridges and Sam Elliott.

Joining us to talk about The Contender is BFF of the show Margo D, co-host of the fantastic and one of our favorite podcasts, Book vs Movie. She also co-hosts The Best Neighbors Podcast, which I listen to religiously every week.

Just in case you don’t know what The Contender is about let me tell you: The vice president has died, and President Jeff Bridges names Senator Joan Allen as the replacement. But Senator Gary Oldman has thoughts and feelings about her confirmation, and digs up some dirt from her past.
