The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are getting pre-historic with their pitches this week in honor of the summer smash "Jurassic World." The guys are pitching dinosaur properties. After they play a game of Five by Five. Along the way they debate whether Mr. Portato Head was full of self-loathing promoting french fries, the long con of New Coke, how exploitative and awful "Criminal Minds" can be, the political and social meanings behind "Zardoz," the lasting power of "Dino the Last Dinosaur," the particulars of love in "Mannequin," and the unknowable subtitles of the "Land Before Time" direct-to-video sequels.
Also available on iTunes.
Episode 113 includes:
-Ben and Nate talk about the passing of Christopher Lee, the most badass nonagenarian actor/metal singer ever.
-Nate re-watches "Zardoz" and will never be the same again. Again.
-"Spy" causes Ben to pause his dislike for Melissa McCarthy. "Tammy" is 30% forgiven.
-Ben thinks "Jurassic World" would be better with less meta and more dinosaurs.
-This Week's Pitch -- Dinosaurs!
-Nate pitches a children's movie where a group of kids finds a living dinosaur egg and have to hide it from the government.
-Ben pitches a dinosaur buddy copy film and a film with the greatest title known to man.
-This Week's Game -- Five by Five!
-The guys try and guess one another's list of five movies they created off the top of their head after being given a specific category. They then have a last man standing to see who can name more dinosaur movies.
