Rank #4: Oscar Reactions and Predictions
K-Earth's Larry Morgan & The Monkey Crew is ready to throw poop at the Academy Award nominations - as well as predict winners and give some love to deserving pictures and performances. And we can't help but slide into some Comic Book Nerd territory with a big push for "Black Panther" as Best Picture. AND Shawn alerts us to the Great Brit Infiltration conspirary.
Rank #5: #64 - Sharon Lawrence
You know Emmy-nominated Sharon Lawrence from...oh, let's say "NYPD Blue", "Shameless", "Grey's Anatomy", a thousand other movies and tv shows, and maybe the recent original Lifetime movie "Poinsettias for Christmas." She was recently honored by the Cancer Support Community of Los Angeles with a Gilda Award for her support of breast cancer awareness and research.
She's lovely, funny, delightful, and can really belt out a Pat Benatar tune.

Rank #6: #63 - Roger Joseph Manning, Jr.
Larry Morgan is joined by co-Snark-host, writer/producer Trey Callaway as they visit the home of singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. We are both huge fans of this man's body of work, from the legendary and influential power pop band Jellyfish to his projects with Imperial Drag, his contributions to many other artists and solo work, including his latest EP "Glamping."
Rank #7: #62 - Writer Seth M. Sherwood/Hell Fest
We welcome Seth Sherwood ("Leatherface") back as one of the writers of the new movie "Hell Fest" (in theaters NOW) and we take a deep dive into the evolution and success of the horror film and his crusade to put the FUN back in the genre. We talk about Seth's vision for the film, break down the ups and downs of fandom, and get geeky about "Star Wars" for a minute.
Follow Seth on Twitter @SethMSherwood
Rank #8: #61 - Jennifer Cochis/Director, LA Film Festival
The LA Film Festival kicks off THIS WEEK (Sept. 20-28) and we snag the delightful Jennifer Cochis, the director of the fest, to come in the MonkeyCage to give us some insight into what to expect. The lineup this year sounds amazing, and of particular interest to K-Earth listeners, opening night features the music doc "Echo in the Canyon" about the Laurel Canyon music scene borne in the 60s and its impact on musicians to this day.

Rank #9: #60 - Paul Feig returns!
Director Paul Feig (Freaks & Geeks, Bridesmaids, Spy, The Heat, Ghostbusters) joins Larry Morgan in the MonkeyCage to talk about his new film "A Simple Favor" (opening Friday, 9/14) as well as his always-fashionable look, why directing a thriller was a natural step for him, why the casting director is the unsung hero of cinema, why "The Blues Brothers" is a Perfect Movie (Paul's words...no kidding) and much more!
Rank #10: SnarkReview - Mission: Impossible - Fallout
In what may be the most adorable SnarkMonkey episode yet, the whole Morgan family (Larry, Charla & Alex) saw M:I6 together...and reviewed it together! So how's Tom Cruise holding up? Is it the best of the series? Is it one of the best action movies ever? Can you follow this crazy plot? You may not care what we think, but listen anyway because...well...adorable.
