Who Shot Ya?

This week we have a truly INCREDIBLE episode. Drea returns to discuss Pixar's Incredibles 2.

Drea chastises the gang for quoting her on a previous episode and not giving a proper citation. PLUS, Alonso educates everyone on the current state of queer cinema; what's bad, what's good, and what's the future.

This episode is a hoot and a half! The gang is joined by Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers of the Las Culturistas podcast. The program starts very strong with Matt's obsessive "Zapruder-ing" of the A Star Is Born trailer. They then go over the newest heist film Ocean's 8. The room is very divided on this one with all of them returning to the question - "Is there a conflict in this entire movie?" Plus, many of the individuals on this podcast admit to a deep love for the much maligned Norbit. Also, we have a special segment with Drea Clark. She interviews director Bobby Miller about his new film, The Cleanse, with Anjelica Huston and Johnny Galecki. This is a wild episode and is required listening!

This week the gang is lucky enough to be joined by Britain's own, "The Beef and Dairy Network Podcast" host, Ben Partridge. It's a staff choice episode this week, and this time it's April's pick. She chose the 1971 Australian psychological thriller, Wake In Fright. The gang takes apart the film and what makes it so relevant to today's society. Alonso even calls it "toxic masculinity, the movie." The film can be a bit brutal and the crew makes sure to touch upon those elements, including the infamous kangaroo hunting scene. Plus, in celebration of having a beef expert on the show, the gang discusses eating meat in cinema. This segment is obviously titled "Weird Meat."
