The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are yet again combining two movies into a brand-new pitch, this time with 2003's big broad successful comedy "Bruce Almighty" with the moribund 1934 "Death Takes a Holiday," which was the inspiration for 1998's "Meet Joe Black," a movie not discussed on this week's podcast.

Episode 321 includes:
-Is Shang-Chi a secret menanist?
-Ben begins another front in his war of words against Martin Scorsese, this time with director Denis Villeneuve.
-Netflix documentary "Misha and the Wolves" is a survival story that's too good to be true and that's also the point.
-"Candyman" could have been a great horror movie, or message movie, but it kind of suffers from both.
-The guys talk about M. Night Shyamalan's very odd and very head-shaking thriller, "Old."
-Switch the Pitch -- "Bruce Almighty" / "Death Takes a Holiday"
-The 2003 Jim Carrey mass appeal comedy where a man is given the powers of God gets to be combined with the 1934 comedy/romance/drama "Death Takes a Holiday" where the Grim Reaper takes a brief vacation to live life as a human. One of these is less boring, guess which one?
