It’s time to celebrate our 100th episode on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

This week, we review Steven Spielberg‘s sprawling sci-fi adventure adaptation Ready Player One, based on the book by Ernest Cline. We also chat about Paddy Considine‘s boxing drama Journeyman and Wes Anderson‘s latest foray into stop-motion animation with Isle of Dogs, as well as prom night comedy Blockers, starring John Cena and Leslie Mann.

In the news section, we discuss director Colin Trevorrow‘s return to the Jurassic Park universe and the surprising news that Disney is taking Solo: A Star Wars Story to the lion’s den of the Cannes Film Festival for its world premiere. Meanwhile, we bring things to a close with a quiz about two singular movie directors.
