Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are trying a new hybrid game/pitch this week in honor of the astounding "Hellboy" reboot, so the guys will pitch a new version of a Hellboy movie using random plot elements decided by dice rolls every so often. It's amazing that it's not only cohesive, and awesome, but easily better than the film in theaters. The guy then close out another podcast with America's favorite game, the "So Shalit Be" of "So Shalit Be" games.

Episode 235 includes:

-Star Wars is back with a TV show, a new trailer for Episode IX, a new title, and more... of the old.

-"Missing Link" is the least Laika film yet but still charming.

-Nate declares "Dragged Across Concrete" is one of the best films of 2019.

-Ben is flabbergasted by the "Hellboy" reboot.

-This Week's Pitch -- Switch the Pitch (Hellboy)!

-The guys roll a dice to select new plot additions (New Character/Flashback/Plot Twist/Action Scene/Death Scene/Sex Scene) and pitch, on the spot, a new "Hellboy" and it is awesome. This lasts a half hour!

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

-The guys conclude with another rousing edition of impersonating film critic/social deviant Gene Shalit and coming up with increasingly absurd blurbs for films.
