Steven Wahl and Chandler Nunnally love movies!

This week on Act 3, we're talking about the release of HBO Max. This was a largely smooth release so any other potential streaming services should take note. We're also discussing the possibility of Henry Cavill putting the cape back on as Superman again. In Act 3, we're talking about a film from Steven's favorite screenwriter, Aaron Sorkin. "Molly's Game" was released in 2017 but has recently been in the top 10 on Netflix, so what better time to talk about it? Sorkin pulls double duty here as both the writer and director, so we'll break down what we think of his work. And stick around after the credits for Chandler's pitch for a fourth Austin Powers film that he is *very* serious about.
