Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back and might be dipping out again soon for other projects, but in the meantime they've got a bounty, a feast of movies to talk about. They limit each movie to four minutes and run through a gauntlet of ten recent releases. The guys also pitch movies set in the Harry Potter universe in honor of the second "Fantastic Beasts" movie, and then they finish off this podcast with a holiday treat, another rendition of America's favorite game, So Shalit Be.

Available on iTunes.

Episode 224 includes:

-Is it possible that "Detective Pikachu" might actually be a good movie?

-R.I.P. Marvel comics iconoclast Stan Lee. Excelsior.

-Nate runs through five movies he's seen on his own: "Blue My Mind," "The Girl in the Spider's Web," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Ballad of Buster Scruggs," and "Widows."

-The guys run through a gauntlet of new releases: "Suspiria," "The Grinch," "Border," "Fantastic Beasts 2," and "Ralph Wrecks the Internet."

-This Week's Pitch -- Potter Universe!

-Nate pitches a look at the wizards vs humans conflict in different eras hinted at with "Fantastic Beasts."

-Ben pitches an Azkaban prison break movie and other movies but, come on, how can we not get an Azkaban prison break movie? That's awesome.

-This Week's Game -- So Shalit Be!

-The guys come up with increasingly vulgar blurbs for Gene Shalit as they spin through ten movies.

While the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are busy with another writing project, so in the meantime enjoy a podcast from Ben and his brother George, "Saturday Night Jive," where the two of them watch and analyze movies starring SNL alums. This week it's one of the biggest SNL stars, Mike Myers, and one of the biggest bombs, "The Love Guru," a woefully misguided crass comedy that all but killed Myers' comedy career. Ten years later, is it as bad as remembered, or will the boys find it to be a hidden gem akin to their reappraisal of Adam Sandler's "Jack and Jill"
