We’re still catching up on sleep after Oscars night on the latest episode of the Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We dissect the winners and losers from the Oscars ceremony, including the remarkable cock-up that marred its ending, and review the Best Picture winner Moonlight, as well as fellow Best Picture nominee Hidden Figures. We also chat about the bizarre Matt Damon movie The Great Wall, which has proven to be an utterly unsuccessful US-China co-production.

In the debate section, we discuss the idea that movies should be limited to just one trailer and Luke leads another quiz about movies that were released a decade ago.
