– Movie Series Announcement / A24 Draft Results (12:00)
After some fun discussion about Zack Snyder, 300 and some recent Twitter debate, we begin the show with a fun announcement as we’ve finally decided on our new Movie Series that we will begin next week. It’s going to be a long ride, but we are very excited to dive into it and talk about some great movies. In this segment, we also reveal the results of our A24 Draft from last week, which was a lot of fun.

– Trap / Hit Man Trailers (28:18)
M. Night Shyamalan has had one of the most fascinating careers in modern filmmaking. With three distinct phases, his current work has been utterly fascinating. So, yeah, we we’re very excited to see the trailer for Trap and it did not disappoint. We are here for the both the M. Night and Josh Hartnett Renaissance. We are also big fans of Richard Linklater and Glen Powell, so of course we also had to dive into the trailer (and poster) for their latest collaboration in Hit Man.

– Blockbusters (57:41)
Recently we talked about Michael Bay and why his films resonate more these days than when they first came out, and with the re-release of The Mummy coming to theaters, we figured it would be fun to look back at the history of the blockbuster and discuss which films still hold up extremely well. We didn’t have time to talk about everything we wanted to, but it was a really fun conversation (thus you’ll have to forgive the length of the show).
