Due to the size, the recent recording by the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" is being split in half, with part one being the discussion of the week's news items and the movies seen, including big new studio releases like whether there is a moral fault for "In the Heights" and "The Conjuring 3," whether "Luca" is anything more than a literal fish out of water tale, and just how bad Paramount Plus' "Infinite" can get.
Available on Apple and Spotify
Episode 308 includes:
-R.I.P. Ned Beatty, a man who is best known for squealing like a pig when requested.
-Ben think "In the Heights" is a tragedy because the character don't burn down the mechanisms of capitalism. Nate likes the songs.
-"The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It" is a gross example of deifying hucksters trying to free a real killer.
-"Luca" is pretty but nothing special from Pixar.
-"Infinite" is the first "Paramount Plus original" and there's a reason this generic, big-budget, vaguely supernatural sci-fi action thriller got shuttled off to a streamer. The guys discuss the faults at length and Ben pitches a much improved version in minutes.
