Episode 044 is 2 hours and 19 minutes of fast-paced movie-related banter. In this episode we bring you another double-header review of “The Wolverine” and “The Way Way Back.” Our special guests for this episode are WILLIS WHEELER of the Terror Troop horror movie podcast and movie buff and fan-of-the-show, KEITH STEIN of Toronto, Canada.
We have a few surprises during this show, such as an impromptu discussion about Westerns, and a fairly decent list of off-the-cuff recommendations for listeners who are interested in exploring that genre. In fact, we discuss a wide variety of various genres in this episode. Download this episode and subscribe!
