Matt, Adam, and Perri talk about Jurassic World. During our conversation, we discuss why the film was such a success, it's myriad of shortcomings, if Jurassic Park even works as a franchise, how the movie could have been better, it's treatment of women, and much more. If you liked the movie, this episode will likely make you angry. If you didn't like the movie or had strong reservations about it, commiserate with us!

Matt and Adam talk about Paul Feig’s Spy. We talk about why Feig and star Melissa McCarthy are such an outstanding team, how the movie compares to McCarthy’s previous movies, her talent, why we’re excited for Feig’s Ghostbusters, and more. We also talk about Entourage, and why it’s awful.
This week on The Collider Podcast, Matt and Adam talk about the films of writer-director Cameron Crowe. We go through and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of all of Crowe's features--'Say Anything', 'Singles', 'Jerry Maguire', 'Almost Famous', 'Vanilla Sky', 'Elizabethtown', 'We Bought a Zoo', and 'Aloha'--as well as his breakthrough screenwriting work for 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'. Over the course of our talk, we try to figure out what defines a Cameron Crowe film and why the quality of his work has declined over his past several films.
