Grumpy Young Men

This week we’re going back 21 years to the glorious year of 1996, when Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson made their first film: Bottle Rocket. Henry absolutely loves it, and Samuel likes the first and third act. That’s about it. (How’s an asshole like Samuel get such a great kitchen?)

Also, why we hate the audio quality the past two weeks.

(Apologies about Samuel’s audio in the first four minutes. His microphone decided to freak out on us, but again, it’s only for the first four minutes.)

This week we discuss Quentin Tarantino’s finest, Pulp Fiction. We recap the plot, go over the fascinating cast of characters, and wonder just what the hell was going on in the pawn shop. Good lord.

Also, why we hate Soylent.
