This week on The Collision, we have reached our 100th episode.  To commemorate the milestone, we get to the most basic aspect of this podcast: why we love talking about movies.  During our conversation, we explore how discussion enriches our understanding of movies, the means of expressing differing viewpoints, controversial opinions, dealing with hype, our favorite films, and so much more.  It feels incredibly rewarding to have come this far, and I think this is one of the best episodes we’ve ever done.  Our deepest thanks to all our listeners.
