We get kinky with Fifty Shades Freed then get deceived in Park Chan-Wook's The Handmaiden (2016). Later we tackle the sudden passing of composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (Sicario, Arrival), plus the new Venom trailer, the importance of Rashomon, what films we'd show to aliens (and our future children), possible new segments to the show, and more!
