The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are performing another directorial double feature for their look at classic and cult movies, this time with the recently deceased Joel Schumacher. They watch the classic 1978 musical "The Wiz" and also the newly cultish 1993 thriller, "Falling Down," which has grown in popularity with alt-right factions on the Internet.
