Special Features - CTS Best Films of the Aughts

Brought to you by Movie Podcast Network and sponsored by Movie Podcast Weekly, we proudly present Special Features Episode 014, a reissue of the Considering the Sequels podcast’s “Very Best Films of the Aughts,” a bonus episode that celebrates the best cinema of the years 2000 through 2009.

We wanted those who have not yet subscribed to our Movie Podcast Network Special Features feed to have a little taste of the kind of off-beat but entertaining content you get through becoming a patron for the low, low price of just $2.50 per month.

But just for the purposes of this episode, let’s just assume that an antagonist, generically speaking, is the character who is actively opposing or trying the hedge up the way of the protagonist in his or her pursuit of a goal. In other words, the person who is trying to stop our protagonist. Continue reading
