Ep. 269: Classics Catch-Up (or) Hot Garbage? -- "Memories of Murder" (2003) / "Repo: The Genetic Opera" (2008)
The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have decided to look into the filmography of a favorite director of the 2010s, Bong Joon-ho, fresh off of his Oscar victories with "Parasite." The guys will be watching his second ever film, 2003's police thriller "Memories of Murder," for this week's classic movie. For the cult movie of this week, a friend suggested that Ben and Nate watch the horror musical 2008's "Repo: The Genetic Opera," and now Ben doesn't know if he should consider this person a friend any longer.
