Episode 60: Romancing the Stone (1984)

It’s a grand adventure to the wilds of Colombia as the guys break down the 1984 oft-forgotten gem of a film Romancing the Stone. The film got somewhat lost in the mix of treasure hunt films amongst the Indiana Jones series, but there is plenty of fun to be had with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas’s lighthearted romp through the jungle. The guys talk about how Colombian cops are ruthless, how alligators aren’t used as weapons nearly enough, and how Douglas might have the reverse Midas touch.

Episode 45: Falling Down (1993)

The guys finally snap and go postal this week on their episode of Joel Schumacher’s 1993 cult classic Falling Down. They compare the film with others like it that use heat as a device to show a character’s breaking point, celebrate the hilariously ’90s style of the film and its director, who is probably stuck back in 1996 and we don’t even know it, and just how this film has managed to garner such acclaim, when seemingly everything points to it being a bad movie. See where the guys themselves stand as well as their own vanity plate a la D-FENS and where they’d pick to retire.
