Grumpy Young Men

This week we are talking about one of the most mixed movies in recent memory, Avatar. Is it the brilliant sci-fi epic of this generation? Or is it a forgettable CGI romp with generic themes? Tune in to find out!

Also, why we hate memories.

Today we are covering two of our personal favorite directors: Quentin Tarantino and Wes Anderson. See, Samuel loves the Quentin, but can’t stand Wes. Meanwhile Henry loves Wes, but can’t stand Quentin. So we discuss each director as well as pitch their top three movies that the other host would like. Mass hilarity and movie recommending ensues.

Also, why we hate getting rear ended.

This week we talk about one of the greatest war movies ever made, Saving Private Ryan. We talk about the coldhearted nature of war in this movie, the surprising amount of random cameos, and how much of a coward Upham is. Mickey Mouse!

Also, why we hate what happened in Las Vegas.
