The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have much to discuss following the 2016 Oscar nominations, most notably the second year in a row there are all white acting nominees and the response to this controversy. In honor of "Ride Along 2" coming out in theaters, one of Ben's least favorite films of 2014, the guys pitch awful sequels for the worst films of 2015. They wrap up their rewatch of season one of 'Z Nation" and in general explore all number of tangents.
Available on iTunes.
Episode 131 includes:
-Ben and Nate theorize that we'll all someday turn into actor Jay Davison (The Crying Game, Stargate) as a species.
-What's white and white and white all over? The Oscar nominees! The guys take an in depth discussion that goes deep into the idea of diversity, representation, artistic merit and vision, what's the definition of "supporting" for performance, and what constitutes art.
-Ben and Nate return back to musings over "Hateful Eight" and "Revenant."
-Nate thinks Michael Bay's Benghazi movie is the director at his most restraint. There's only obnoxious product placement rather than in-your-face obnoxious product placement. Progress.
-Ben is surprised to find "Daddy's Home" to be kinda funny and fairly passable and "Sisters" to be an awful comedy.
-This Week's Pitch -- Sequels to Worst Films of 2015!
-The guys pitch terrible sequels to some of the worst films from the previous year, exploring whether there is a bottom for such movies like "Human Centipede," "Joe Dirt," and "Minions."
-Bonus Discussion: 'Z Nation' Re-watch (episodes 1x11-13)
-Ben and Nate finish their season one recap of SyFy's zombie TV series.
