The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back, baby, and they are running through a dozen movies to talk about from holiday fare to end-of-the-year awards contenders. There's big change in the entertainment industry with the seismic news of Disney purchasing 20th Century Fox, and the guys discuss the major implications. In honor of "I, Tonya," the guys pitch movies about scandals. In the meantime, enjoy the conversations about van purposes, what it takes to worry Paul Ryan, Bond villain desk settings, and what a Tarantino Star Trek would be like.
