This week we pack up a case of Jack Daniels and head back to 1976 to have a look around and watch it's second highest-grossing movie A Star is Born with special guest Karen Geier!  We go over the tale of a cool but also awful bank robbery before wading into the boozy swamp of Streisand that is A Star is Born.

This week we decided to jump ship from our regular examinations of Sylvester Stallone's hubris to have a look at Vin Diesel's hubris instead so we swung back to 2015 to catch the passion project loosely based on his D&D Campaign: The Last Witch Hunter.  We talk about how talking about D&D to any outside person is inadvisable, and go over the insane ramblings of a megalomaniacal nerd that really, really doesn't like ladies.

This week we run a scam on the time machine to swing us back to 1973 to have a look around and watch its second highest grossing movie The Sting with special guest Brian Ward! We go over a crazy helicopter situation from '73 and then enjoy a classic movie starring Paul Newman's eyes and Robert Shaw's limp.

This week we veer offcourse on the way to 1970 and crash-land in 1993 and figured why not watch something with kicking, so we go over the Jean-Claude Van Damme John Woo movie featuring uncle Brimley and the snakefire man we found because of a google image result of JCVD biting a snake.

This week we get back in the time seats and head back to 1956 to have a look around and watch its second-highest grossing movie: Around the World in 80 Days with guest Nigel Grinstead!  We go over Elvis' middle part movements and their effect and then go over the weirdest britishest awful things we've seen!
