Last time you heard from us we tried to lighten everyone's collective load in the days following the election and listed off some of our favorite mockumentaries. It's a list of flicks that might come in handy if a couple of weeks after the fact your nerves are still frazzled so check that out here if you need it.

This week, with Thanksgiving coming up on us fast, we decided to serve up a hearty list of hand-selected food-centric films to get your appetite going!

Along the way you'll hear some digressions into how many pieces of bubble gum Jared's chewed at one time, Bruce reminisces about being at the LA premiere of "Sausage Party' Chris shoes some love to arguably Steven Spielberg's biggest misfire, and the question of which fast food place makes the best french fries sparks controversy.

Links to where you can watch, stream, or rent all of our picks can be found in the show notes here.

Just to be Nominated is hosted and produced by Chris Lay, the podcast operations manager for Lee, along with Bruce Miller, the editor of the Sioux City Journal, and Jared McNett, a reporter for the Globe Gazette in Mason City, Iowa.

Oh! Also: Lee Enterprises just launched a really wonderful new podcast you might like, called The Ethical Life. It's hosted by Richard Kyte, director of the Ethics Institute at Viterbo University, and Scott Rada, Lee's social media manager, and every other week or so they'll explore the intersection of ethics and modern life. You can click the link above, or search for it on your pod player of choice!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the hosts of Lee enterprises film podcast, 'Just to be Nominated,' rounded up their favorite movies about food!

Swedish director Hans Petter Moland remade his own film "In Order of Disappearance," as a Liam Neeson aggrieved dad thriller, transposing the location to a Colorado mountain town (though they shot in British Columbia, tax breaks!). In this black comedy, a snowplow driver (Neeson) unearths the seedy underbelly of a dastardly small town drug gang while seeking revenge for the death of his son. Rent it for $3.99 on iTunes, Amazon or YouTube.

The ultimate snowed-in, cabin fever mind melter, "The Shining" may not be the vibe you are going for at the moment, but you have to admit it's relatable. Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall star in Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of the Stephen King novel, in which a young family finds themselves snowed-in alone at a remote old haunted hotel (in so many words). We may all be on the verge of speed-typing "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," so perhaps a viewing of this masterpiece will serve as a course-correcting cautionary tale. $3.99 rental on all digital platforms.
