On this episode we expand the definition of family films with two personal favorites in ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES and WE BOUGHT A ZOO. Guest Ben Zuk and your host have threatened to feature these two films for quite some time, and last year's release of THE COMMUNE (now available on Hulu) gave us somewhat of an excuse to do so. Hopefully we can change some hearts and minds to appreciate some of Cameron Crowe's best work, but failing that check out our new podcast launching this week: 99 from 99. A movie podcast that presents 99 episodes on the films from 1999.

Guest Andrew of AB Film Review & The Last New Wave joins the podcast to experience first contact multiple times as we continue to feature favorite films from our guests. On this episode we learn that ANOTHER EARTH does not earn that distinction from our Australian friend, but he shares a passion for Steven Spielberg's CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, which celebrated a 40th anniversary re-release this year. Along the way we also make time to question the existence of God when Jake Busey exists, which is the main takeaway from the Robert Zemeckis adaptation of Carl Sagan's CONTACT... right?
