The "new" movie, THE HUNT has had a challenging roll out. After receiving national criticism in Sept 2019 in light of national tragedies, it was pushed back to March of this year, only to have its theatrical launch stymied by COVID-19 closures. BUT NBCUniversal has put the film out for VOD streaming in the comfort of our homes and we’ve got opinions on whether this political manhunt thriller is perfect for your quarantine movie viewing pleasure. So, have listen in between hand washings.

It’s a weird time for the Movie Bears Podcast guys. We were intending to be at SXSW Film Festival this week covering tons of new release films as part of our annual excursion. While we’re dismayed in the wake of SXSW’s cancellation amidst COVID-19 precautionary concerns, we completely understand the decision. On this episode, we’re talking about SXSW, then moving onward with a review of Pixar’s, well, ONWARD. So if you’re stuck at home in quarantine or just in need of some socialization, give us a listen.
