On this week’s ScreenPicks Movie Show, we review seven new films. First, host Phil Wallace discusses 12 Years a Slave with Kit Bowen, Andrew Payne, and Ogechi Wadibia. The quartet also examines the film’s Oscar chances. Then, Bowen, Payne, and Samantha Wilson disagree about the quality of The Fifth Estate. Samantha Wilson is harshly critical of James Franco’s new movie As I Lay Dying. Afterward, Bowen reviews Carrie, Escape Plan, Kill Your Darlings, and Paradise.
