The Internet exploded over Miley Cyrus and Ben Affleck, and so the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are on the case. The guys are pitching invasion properties in light of "You're Next" and "The World's End," and they've saved the Batfleck talk for the end, envisioning a DC cinematic universe in a game of Pre-Cast It. Along the way they talk about topics such as "Full House" as a home invasion thriller, the power of Urkel, what the VMAs are supposed to be awarding anyway, Ben's sock metric for enjoying music videos, your priorities when given a time machine (hint: kill Hitler first), "Ghost Shark" vs. "Sharknado," lovemaking inside a shark's belly, quesitons about sperm bank donation requirements, sock babies, the healing strength of Nicole Kidman's urine in "The Paperboy," alien fornication to save the species, the credibility problems of a Wonder Woman movie, why Aquaman could murder everyone, and why the public only cares about Batman and Superman.

Also available on iTunes!

Episode 58 includes:

-Miley Cyrus twerked and the world went mad. Also: the guys' short film makes the BEST OF screening for the 48 hour film fest.

-Is a powerful third act in "Fruitvale Station" enough to justify the first two acts?

-"You're Next" will make you re-evaluate the full uses of common kitchen appliances.

-"The World's End" may be the best movie of the Cornetto Trilogy. Ben and Eric go into geek gasms.

This Week's Pitch -- Invasion Film/Series!

-Ben pitches aliens taking over a tenement building and an adult "Home Alone" as a spooky Norman Bates-type nutball. Don't go in there, Joe Pesci!

-Eric pitches a reamke of "Two Minute Drill" and samurai and ninjas vs. aliens.

-Nate pitches an outpost on the edge of Rome's crumbling empire having to fight together to thwart invaders.

-This Week's Game -- Pre-Cast It!

-Taking off from Ben Affleck as Batman, the guys cast the rest of the Justice League (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter) before speculating about a future DC movie universe. They are not optimistic.
