This week we throw a wig on the time machine and zip back to 1982 to have a look around and see its second highest-grossing movie: Tootsie with comedian Nigel Grinstead.  We go over some background on that time a guy tried to kill the pope with a bayonet, then go over the endless tomfoolery of Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie.

This week, after subjecting ourselves to 2007 and Spider Man 3, we swung the time machine around, picked up Actor/Comedian Vance Banzo and went straight to 2005 to hurt ourselves and watch it number 2 grossing movie: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. We go over an old baby lady, the time a hankie stopped George W Bush from exploding and then get angry as we try to go over a real big mess Georgie made.

This week, we crumble under the awful world and escape in the time machine to 2007 to catch an awful movie that's still better than engaging with reality, Spider Man 3!  We go over ancient child lockets, money cancer, and Peter Parker's murder pants.

This week, we stoke up a good head of time steam and head back to 1996, this time to watch its 2nd highest-grossing movie: Twister with special guest Ted Morris! We go over some 1996 and Devon Sawa-related gems before plowing headlong into whatever the hell twister is!  Steaks not Stakes! (Aren't we clever?)

This week, we strap many guns to the time machine and fly strategically past the moon on our way back to 1989 to watch it's second highest-grossing movie: Batman with special guest Ryan Horwood!  We go over a 1989 beer-related nationwide pub crawl before diving into the reason there are still batman movies at all: Tim Burton's weird-ass joker movie featuring tiny Batman.
