In a lot of ways 1999 was the year that changed movies. From “The Matrix” and “The Blair Witch Project” to “American Beauty” and “The Sixth Sense”, the last year of the millennium was transformative for Hollywood. Through "Podcast Like It's 1999" writers Phillip Iscove (co-creator of FOX's Sleepy Hollow) and Kenny Neibart (Entourage, Hindsight) examine this apex of Cinema, before television took over, before Reality TV, before TMZ and Twitter but also after the internet, after Clinton, after ...

This week, we go back to a movie I originally skipped in my journey to watch every single Tom Hanks movie — Cars (2006).

Fox movie Doc Hollywood. Also, …

Sure, Tom Hanks is one of the most famous cowboys of all time — Sheriff Woody — but News of the World (2020) is the first time he's doing a traditional western movie.

My friend Julian Gonzalez (@northhollywoodjules) joins me for this bonus Hanks episode where we talk about Carly Rae Jepsen's 2015 music video for "I Really Like You."
