In honor of "Ready or Not," the guys pitch movies featuring the hunting of humans, and then they end another episode with America's favorite game, "So Shalit Be?" where they summarize the movies reviewed through the spirit of notable TV film critic, Gene Shalit.

The guys pitch tag-team spinoffs and then conclude with another round of America's favorite game, "So Shalit Be" where the guys imitate national treasure Gene Shalit to come up with movie blurbs for the films covered that week.
