Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are closing down their Double or Nothing series with a climactic trip to the fourth planet from the sun, Mars. 2000 was the year of a new century and also a yearof two Mars-based space thrillers, each a dud and each altering the careers of their directors. The guys discuss Brian DePalma's "Mission to Mars," breaking their promise from their Nail in the Coffine episode on the director, and then the lesser known Val Kilmer-stranded-on-Mars-with-a-killer-robot movie, "Red Planet." Note: neither is to be confused with John Carpenter's also underwhelming early 2000s feature, "Ghosts of Mars."
