Ladies and Gentlemen, we are BACK!!! With the Livestream for the Cure 2.0 a resounding success, we've got a lot of HUGE thanks to spread around to everyone, and we are incredibly grateful for everyone who helped us with the event and donated to help us reach the goal.
This week, we're back with a FULL discussion of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which opens with a Nick's Rant... but maybe not for a reason you'd expect. How did you feel about the film? Let us know over in the Hobster's Dumpster!

Also this week, Nick gives his brief thoughts on Deadpool 2 and we talk about the 20th anniversary of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, an absolutely amazing film that just celebrated that huge milestone last week. Next week on the show, we're beginning our Jurassic Park franchise retrospective with a look back at the iconic original film ahead of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at the end of the month. Thank you for listening everyone! We'll see you at the movies!!!

Friends of the Show
We'd like to give a huge shout-out for a lot of the shows we're proud to call friends, and that we're proud to call ourselves fans of. We especially have to thank our brothers in Perth, Paul & Wayne of The Countdown Movie & TV reviews, who have opened us up to a huge audience halfway across the world. Particular thanks to Paul who has been an amazing friend and has been infinitely helpful in terms of getting honest feedback on the evolution of the show. A huge thank you to Emily from The Story Behind podcast, whose support and friendship have kept this show alive through some of its darkest days. A huge thank you to some of our biggest podcasting friends, from Mr. X at the Angry Old Man, Shane from Now That I'm Older, David from The Unwritable Rant, Adam from Everyone Has a Podcast, Ro from the World of Ro, the entire crew at Afterburn 739, Mat at the One Word, Go! show, Justin from So I Married a Movie Geek, and Deana from the Twisted Philly podcast. We're probably forgetting someone, so thank you to ALL of you! We truly do love and appreciate your support.
We also have to give a huge shout out to #PodernFamily for helping to increase our exposure, and safe to say without it we wouldn't have met a lot of the podcasters and fans we're proud to call friends. We also want to give a huge shout out to the #MoviePodSquad, a group of movie podcasters in the #PodernFamily who have come together for our mutual love of film.
