The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back and picking up the pieces of major reshuffling, from Blumhouse pulling a release to recent tragedies to Sony and Marvel ending their shared partnership with Spider-Man over money. In honor of "Ready or Not," the guys pitch movies featuring the hunting of humans, and then they end another episode with America's favorite game, "So Shalit Be?" where they summarize the movies reviewed through the spirit of notable TV film critic, Gene Shalit.
