Who Shot Ya?

The end of 2017 has arrived, and the Who Shot Ya? crew has some thoughts about it. The gang is joined by good friend/provocateur Inkoo Kang to discuss the movies that made the biggest impact on them. They discuss which films surprised them, which disappointed them, and which films best represented the year that was 2017. Plus, instead of a normal round of ITIDIC (Is this important? Do I care?) Ricky, Alonso, and April discuss the news stories they DIDN'T care about AND the ones they cared about...but no one else did. If you're looking for fantastic film recommendations, THIS is the episode to listen to because it is chock full of them.
