Dirty Sons of Pitches

The guys are spending Halloween with a monster and a man in drag, and so they discuss two recent films, the new Japanese Godzilla movie and Tyler Perry's return to the character he built an empire with. "Shin Godzilla" is a totally different approach to large-scale disaster movies, and "Boo! A Madea Halloween" is more or less characters riffing from scene to scene. Give it a good listen and Hallalujer everyone.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are still on hiatus for the time being so give a listen to Ben and George's other podcast "Saturday Night Jive," where the brothers look at bad movies starring Saturday Night Live alums. This week they highlight the 1998 movie "Krippendorf's Tribe" starring Richard Dreyfuss, Jenna Elfman, and a young Mila Kunis. It's a movie that probably couldn't be made today and Ben and George marvel at what might be a forgotten comic masterpiece of very un-PC proportions.

While on hiatus, the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are highlighting some of the best from the "Saturday Night Jive" podcast from Ben and George, discussing movies related to SNL aluni. This week comes the 1986 woeful action thriller misfire "Out of Bounds" which attempted to turn a mid 80s Anthony Michael Hall into the most unlikely tough-talking action hero. It's a memorable movie that is forgotten in annuls of so-bad-it's-good and it was never released on DVD. Enjoy as Ben and George shed light on this hilarious new classic.
