This week on the podcast, Mike, Red and Scott meet in the rattling Nostromo Lounge and discuss the downright phenomenal Start Menu theme music for BUCK BUMBLE on the Nintendo 64, Charlize Theron's unrecognizable turn as the terrifying Eileen Wournos in MONSTER, the imminently approaching 10/10 status of IN BRUGES and Colin Farrell's unforgettable career-defining performance, shiny neon lights reflect across the hood of Michael Mann's synth soaked 1981 neo-noir film THIEF with James Caan, Red taps into his Religious Studies education and discharges an entire magazine of scorching hot ammunition between the eyes of every religion known to humankind, we warm up our Wario jets in anticipation of future films and TV shows based on Nintendo properties, shudder in disgust at the absolute nightmare that is SUPER MARIO BROS. from 1993, we share our thoughts on the mastermind himself George Miller potentially directing MAN OF STEEL 2 and much, much more before our featured review of the completely squandered premise that became AMERICAN ULTRA from director Nima Nourizadeh.

So gather up your dessert spoons, steel dustpan and mini-sledgehammer, try not to fall in love with your assigned CIA handler, be sure to practice the ol' frying pan bullet technique, and let's see if we can get a glimpse of our Manchurian Candidate before we all get our brains churned into scrambled eggs by the MK-Ultra program.
