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."

Episode 288 includes:
-Tom Cruise goes off on crew members about COVID safety and splits the guys down the middle.
-Pixar's "Soul" feels a little lacking in that department.
-"Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and "One Night in Miami" are two great ensembles worth your time.
-"Wonder Woman 84" doesn't quite soar.
-Cult Film -- "Death Becomes Her" (1992)
-The dark comedy pitting Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn against one another is a fun, underrated slapsticky dark comedy worth revisiting.
-Classic Film -- "Forrest Gump" (1994)
-Forget everything you thought you knew about the Best Picture Oscar-winner from 1994. "Forrest Gump" is one of the most subversive, cynical, and ironic movies of recent memory and everyone missed it!
