The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back from making another 48 hour film festival entry and can finally talk about a great new movie, Spike Lee's strange-but-true "BlackkKlansman." The guys pitch movies about minority races, race itself, and racial oppression, and then they conclude the episode by playing another game of everyone's favorite pun-laden film critic, So Shalit Be.
Available on iTunes.
Episode 217 includes:
-Come gather ye children to hear the tale, the tale of Movie Pass and foolhardy venture capitalists.
-Ben pimps his new solo podcast, "Head Cannon."
-Who knew Bo Burnham could be so sincere on behalf of eighth grade girls everywhere?
-"BlackkKlansman" is Spike Lee's best movie in decades.
-This Week's Pitch -- Race/Race Relations!
-Nate pitches a "Babel"-like tale of multiple points of view from immigrants, minorities, and people dramatically affected by Trump policies.
-Ben pitches a varied look at a Trayvon Martin-style tragedy, white America trying to flee to Mexico but foiled by a wall, the life of an Asian guy with a goatee who everyone assumes is a kung-fu master, and a vigilante superhero in an urban neighborhood.
-This Week's Game -- So Shalit Be!
-The guys attempt to form Gene Shalit-worthy puns blurbs for each of the movies they talked about on the episode.
