HypeCast: Room, End of the Tour, and The Signal

        Hello, and welcome back to the HypeCast, a film-centric podcast hosted by Collin Sherwood Elwyn and Tyler Mitchell. In today's episode, the guys turn into a couple of indie kids, and discuss a slew of critically acclaimed flicks that did less than stellar business at the box office. First, Tyler throws out about 157 spoiler alerts for The Signal, a movie that, if you're like Collin, you've never heard of before. After a brief shout-out to Netflix's terrific new show Master of None, we're off to discuss a pair of Sundance Film Festival darlings, Me, and Earl, and the Dying Girl (which Tyler saw on last week's enthused recommendation) and End of the Tour, director James Ponsoldt's outstanding David Foster Wallace-centric talk opera. Finally, Collin complains about likely Best Picture nominee Room, a heartwarming story of abduction, sexual abuse, and intentional reality distortion. Given the content, the podcast starts out with unceremoniously peppy music, but we'll give Tyler a pass, as it's his birthday. The immense difference between the shows Power and Powers is also elaborated upon. Warning: a few naughty words are contained within. Continue at your own risk. Here We Go!
