Is This the Rom-Com That Finally Kills the Rom-Com?

On this week's episode of the Voice Film Club podcast, Voice film critics Alan Scherstuhl and Stephanie Zacharek, along with L.A. Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson, discuss rom-com Begin Again (2:26), starring the always-interesting Mark Ruffalo. They also talk about the biting rom-com parody They Came Together (15:47), which might finally put a stake in the heart of the genre. Also, we hear about the post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie Snowpiercer (23:47).
