Aloha! No, we’re not saying “hello.” (Or “goodbye.”) That’s just title of one of the trailers we’re talking about this week, along with the Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck and lost-in-the-woods thriller Backcountry. We also take a look at Das Boot for what is the first time for most of us, and we share What We’re Watching.

In this episode, we watch trailers for Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie remake, Kristen Wiig in the comedy Welcome to Me, and the second Divergent film, Insurgent. Plus we recap the Oscars and our prediction contest, we watch the movie Chef on Netflix, and we talk about What We’re Watching.
It’s our annual Oscar Preview Special! We make our picks for Best Picture and the rest of the categories in this year’s Academy Awards. Will Foxcatcher win Best Picture? Will David Oyelowo win Best Actor? Will Clint Eastwood win Best Director? The answer to all of those is “no” because none of those are nominated for those categories. But don’t worry, we’ll tell you who is nominated and who will win because we know everything!*
