(CW: This episode contains brief mentions of sexual assault throughout.)

Also, why we hate western-facing windows. (Recorded January 25th, 2022.)

This week we’re tackling 2009’s Polytechnique, and it’s one of the most difficult things we’ve had to review on this show. We discuss the style of the film, the things that were changed from the real life tragedy, and wonder what the benefit is in making a movie like this.

Also, why we hate ripped pants. (Recorded January 10th, 2021.)

Also, why we hate gloves. (Recorded December 30th, 2021.)
