Steven Wahl and Chandler Nunnally love movies!

It's the return of Hollywood news this week. We're getting our first look at Denis Villeneuve's "Dune" adaption that's due out later this year. We like the look but we'll explain why we are concerned for this project. We're also getting our first trailer and a release date for Tom Hardy's next film, "Capone." And yes, if you were wondering Tom Hardy is doing some wonderful character voice work here. And this week we're looking back to the year 1999, one of the all-time great years in film history. We're talking the big box off movies and looking at the Oscars from that year and discussing just why 1999 is considered one of the greatest years for movies.
