The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have completed their writing project and are eager to dig into some of the Oscar-ready movies of this new awards season, as well as special Halloween treats for them, like seeing Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes live and in-person for the roadshow edition of "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot." In honor of that, Ben puts together some youth-chasing reboot pitches, and the guys conclude another hearty podcast with America's favorite game, "So Shalit Be," wherein the guys imitate famed critic Gene Shalit to varying degrees of madness and stupidity.

Episode 248 includes:
-New "Star Wars" Episode IX trailer, Benioff & Weiss depart writing "Star Wars," and new "Game of Thrones" spinoff after another spinoff dropped.
-Ever wanted to fast forward through a Netflix movie but didn't want to hit the fast forward button?
-"Jojo Rabbit" and "The Lighthouse" are two very weird, potentially off-putting indies that succeed on their own terms. Only one of them involves an imaginary Hitler.
-"Zombieland 2" is more of the same but also a clear leftover of the TV series that never was.
-"Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" is a movie made for the fans, in both ways good and not quite as good.
-This Week's Pitch -- Hip Reboots!
-In the style of Kevin Smith's reboot, Be quickly runs through some ideas to reboot other movies for a hip, diverse, younger crowd.
-This Week's Game -- So Shalit Be!
-The guys run through the movies covered this week by channeling the spirit of movie critic and pun lover Gene Shalit and supplying increasingly insane blurbs. This week it's all about boots and the places they'll go.
