After Hours - Netflix and the Streaming Dilemma
Jeff and Pat go on a good old-fashioned rant about the changes to Netflix's sharing policy, which devolves into a good old-fashioned rant about the impact of mass media accessibility on the public's moviegoing habits. It's much less intellectual than it sounds.

Episode 44 - Outlaw King
For the final movie review of season 2, Jeff and Pat are talking about Outlaw King, a war/drama period piece surrounding Scotland's First War of Independence.

Episode 42 - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
May the Fourth be with you! It's the first week of May, and Star Wars Day is upon us. This week, Jeff and Pat are getting in the spirit with a review of Rogue One.

Episode 41 - Lethal Weapon
Jeff and Pat are crossing off a long overdue entry on their list this week, as they finally get around to talking about the buddy cop movie to top them all: 1987's Lethal Weapon.

The creator of John Wick somehow took every boring, middle class dad's daydream and turned it into a movie, and that movie's name is Nobody.
