The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are performing yet another directorial double feature and this time the lucky artist is Robert Zemeckis. The guys are revisiting 1992's "Death Becomes Her" as their cult movie of the episode and his follow-up, 1994's "Forrest Gump," as the classic edition. Shocker: both are pretty great and Ben and Nate have the hot take of hot takes for "Gump."
