This week the boys record their monthly Patreon Directed episode featuring the Yorgos Lanthimos mind-bender Dogtooth and the Chinese language blockbuster The Wandering Earth. This one is guaranteed to knock your socks off!
Things kick off this week with news brought to you by the show’s unofficial official news correspondent, Eddie. The boys talk Tivo, misguided reporting, and ponder the pontificating power of Chris’ prediction about the future of Netflix.
Both enthusiastic fans of Yorgos Lanthimos, Dogtooth was sure to be an exciting watch for the hosts. Their reactions to the film couldn’t have been more different! Have you seen this one? Give us some feedback and let us know what you thought. Horror? Comedy? What exactly is this film?
The show ends with a rousing conversation about the Chinese language blockbuster The Wandering Earth. This was something of a bonus for the Patreon Directed episode in that it bubbled up during a conversation with a listener in Beijing who shared that it was the highest-grossing film in China this year. How could you not check that one out?! The reaction to this one might just surprise long-time listeners. As always, send in your suggestions! You never know when you might get a shout out on the show and your favorite movie might just make it into an episode!
