Top 5 Movie Years / There Will Be Blood / Coco / Mudbound

Great movie years usually come down to a memorable Best Picture matchup. In 1939, it was "Gone With the Wind" versus "The Wizard of Oz." In '94, "Pulp Fiction" versus Forrest Gump." And a decade ago - in 2007 - it was the Coen Bros’ "No Country for Old Men" versus Paul Thomas Anderson’s THERE WILL BE BLOOD. On this week's show, Adam and Josh honor the 10th anniversary of '07 with a Sacred Cow review of the PTA masterpiece and share their own Top 5 Movie Years. (Have a seat, 1939, you and Scarlett are going to sit this one out.)
