In our second offering of the week, take a step inside the MAM VIP for a taste of our weekly VIP throwbacks, this time discussing Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan" on the eve of the 4th of July. Is it a "masterpiece?" Should it be considered the greatest war movie ever? Let us know in the comments!
In our first of two episodes this week, the summer movie conversation continues with a look at the sequel to one of 2015's strongest films, Sicario. Was "Sicario: Day of the Soldado" necessary? Should this series be a trilogy? Let us know your thoughts!
Time to return to Jurassic Park/World/whatever for the fifth time! Surely they got it right this time, right?! Join us for our full review of "Fallen Kingdom" as well as an update on our Summer Movie Draft!
