This week, we take on the movie everyone seems to be talking about: ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, the four-hour behemoth currently streaming on HBO Max. Yes, we are aware this isn’t a summer film, but we covered the 2017 original, plus we are gluttons for punishment. So what did two guys who are the furthest thing from comic book fans think of Snyder’s ultimate version? Is this the one that finally won us over? Is Snyder a misunderstood genius? Does this film have a Nick Cave needle-drop? You may be surprised by a few of the answers. Co-host Luke sure does love a big epic soap opera, even when it is masquerading as a superhero flick.

This week, a weekend trip to Myrtle Beach will change the lives of four best friends forever in 1989’s SHAG: THE MOVIE, directed by Zelda Barron. It should come as no surprise that this dance-centric film was hoping to ride on the coattails of DIRTY DANCING to box office victory, but instead found that you need more than choreography by Kenny Ortega to truly impress moviegoers. Yet there is more going on here than meets the eye, including a welcome female sensibility and an easy-going charm courtesy of its talented cast. Also there is waterboarding with Wild Turkey. And ear-frenching. So much ear-frenching. At the very least, it allows co-host Steve to break out his Southern accent again, which is always welcome.
