With award season and a slew of holiday film releases upon us, it's time for Maryland Morning's Movie Mayhem, when we check in with our movie know-it-alls, Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post and Jed Dietz of the Maryland Film Festival.  They share their enthusiasm for some Academy Award contenders, including new films from directors Spike Lee and Steven Spielberg, and some powerful documentaries.

Here are some of the films they discuss this morning:

Chi-Raq, Spotlight, Truth, Bridge of Spies, Christmas Again, Carol, The Martian, Love and Mercy, and Amy

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
