The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are being holding up for the long hall this week as they pitch hostage and siege concepts in honor of the George Clooney vehicle "Money Monster." They drop the plan to discuss "The Flash" on a weekly basis and play another game of Movies Against Humanity. Come for the banter that vacillates between inane and enlightened, and stick around for the hidden war between Fred Murtz v. Fred MacMurray, the new Civil War, whether dogs can recognize the real Kevin Bacon, what Ben's four nipples and their placement say about him, and why Disney should flex its muscle and release an explicit movie.
Available on iTunes.
Episode 143 includes:
-Will there be a good video game movie yet? "Assassins Creed" trailer says.... probably not?
-Ben theorizes the rise and fall of the dog-eat-dog blockbuster era and the return of the auteur. Guess which studio he thinks will outlast them all.
-New chief overseer for the struggling DCU. Can they course correct?
-Ben unknowingly watches a Lifetime original movie, and Nate heartily recommends "Green Room" for fans of suspense thrillers.
-"Money Monster" feels strangely out of touch and out of place. Wall Street culture let off the hook and the dumbest hostage taker.
-This Week's Pitch -- Hostage Situations!
-Nate pitches a pair of sorority sisters who have to navigate and survive a frat house party, learn who they can trust as allies, to escape and report a rape.
-Ben pitches Congress held hostage, a father holding a medical facility hostage to clone his dead son, and a time loop White House thriller.
-This Week's Game -- Movies Against Humanity!
--The guys take turns competing by arguing a movie that best fits a series of category topics including Better Music, More Complex, and More Un-American.
