“Billboards,” “Blade Runner,” And Be Reel’s 2017 Recap
Our year-end episode has arrived, friends, and here’s what’s on the agenda:
2:40 – Noah took himself to “Blade Runner 2049,” so we catch up on Denis Villeneuve’s towering dystopian sequel.
18:25 – We circle back to review “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” a movie in which Frances McDormand tries to burn down the whole world with her eyes.
33:20 – Your hosts begin to wrap up 2017, each counting down their five favorite characters from the year in film, including entries from “Get Out,” “Call Me By Your Name,” and “The Disaster Artist.”
46:05 – Noah fashions a litany of 2017 lists to remind us what movies we may have missed this year and what movies just plain missed us.
Happy holidays, all!

Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
