Dirty Sons of Pitches

A special new podcast subset featuring Nate and his father. "My Dad & the Movies" is a ten-part series where Nate and his father, George, discuss a movie of his father's choice, maybe a favorite or a formative work that made him the cinephile he is, and father and son can talk about their shared love of the movies. Next is the sci-fi film noir masterpiece and one of Roger Ebert's favorite films, 1998's stylish "Dark City."

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are rolling into March with a new Batman movie to talk plenty about, re-examining the many, many issues and discomforts of the 2002 sex comedy "Sorority Boys," as well as living out the harrowing 2016 thriller "Green Room" with Patrick Stewart as a skinhead Nazi leader. Fortunately, the guys have no shortage of things to say to make up for the lack of March episodes thus far. Enjoy.

Episode 339 includes:

-Ryan Coogler mistaken for robbing a bank? What?

-"Marry Me" is a rom-com that suffers from the total lack of chemistry from both of its leads.

-A whole lot to say about Matt Reeves' whole lot of Batman.

-Switch the Pitch -- "Sorority Boys" / "Green Room"

-The guys discuss the nervy 2016 siege thriller by writer/director Jeremy Sauliner and the abhorrent 2002 men-in-drag sex comedy that we are all better forgetting about, and then they combine both movies into a brand-new creative project on the spot.
