Episode notes

This week’s episode is a unique one. During the MaxFunDrive we had a stretch goal that stated that if we reached 250 new and upgrading members, one lucky member would get to choose the movie we discuss on an episode. Since we reached our stretch goal, we randomly selected a member, and that person turned out to be the wonderful Merrell! The movie they chose for us to discuss is 2004’s Mind Game. And boy is it a trip! We also answer a question from our hotline about bad movie accents. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Julie Delpy is fed up, Steven Spielberg makes a deal with Netflix, and Vin Diesel takes credit for Dwayne Johnson’s Fast and Furious performances.

Staff Picks:
Ify – Summer Wars
Drea – Have a Nice Day
Alonso – P.S. Burn This Letter Please

With Ify Nwadiwe, Drea Clark, and Alonso Duralde
