On this week's episode Jake Leary talks "Trolls" with WIC President Natalie Newman. Based on the popular children's toy, "Trolls" makes an admirable attempt to tackle heavier subjects like mental illness; though Jake isn't satisfied with the result, the film still has a lot worth talking about.

There are a lot of movies out there. A. Lot. Every year hundreds of movies come out, but few of them enter the public consciousness; these overlooked films can be exciting, moving, funny or poignant but they don't get the attention of the hottest blockbusters or most Oscar-baity art-films. "Overlooked" is a bi-weekly examination of under-appreciated films that were undervalued at their time of release, hosted by Jake Leary. The show can cover any genre, and though I only discussed movies here, any medium. Each week a new guest from the Ithaca community would be given a chance to espouse a hidden gem that they feel didn't receive enough attention. One part talk show, one part media criticism, "Overlooked" is a movie book club at its core — an enthusiastic celebration of the movies you might have missed.
