On episode four of Overlooked, Jake Leary sits down with Passion Project Senior Podcast Producer Edward Willshire to gush about 2016's Shin Godzilla. The film reboots the classic monster and infuses grotesquery and mundanity into a series previously known for bombast and quirky, kid-friendly-comedy.

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.
