The guys talk Steven Spielberg’s subversive 1977 blockbuster Close Encounters of the Third Kind, touching on the depiction of the impossibility of human communication and the nature of total obsession through the main character Roy (played by Richard Dreyfuss) and his unstoppable quest to “know if [he] is right,” even at the cost of his family. Is he a hero for his childlike wonder or just a complete dirtbag? They try to make some sense of this endlessly perplexing question, as well as talk some of their own preferences should they be abducted by a UFO, from the song that would lure them to the ship to the choice of snacks onboard. Plus, Spectre trailer talk and Furious 7 Oscar predictions.
