Episode 194 - 2014 Retrospective & The Big G!

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to a pre-recorded episode of the Epic Film Guys podcast! That's right, not since my honeymoon in 2016 have we canned an episode for future release and that's because we're preparing for the Livestream for the Cure, which as of release day begins TOMORROW! We hope you'll join us at http://twitch.tv/epicfilmguys for 40 hours of amazing content to help raise money for cancer research.

Being that we canned this one early, we decided to do another entry in our "To the Tens" series and focus on the year 2014 in film! As of release, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is just a couple weeks away, so we decided to take a look back at Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, which came out that year, and we also talk briefly about what we're hoping for from King of the Monsters. I couldn't do this alone, so I was joined by two guests: our great friend Dan of Netflix 'n Swill and first-time guest Sam from Movie Reviews in 20 Qs stopped by to help out and we counted down our top five films of the year as well. This episode was supposed to feature JD of InSession Film, but sadly his audio was lost to the vastness of the internet, and none of it survived outside of a brief mention to him or something he said in the episode. He did, however, record his top five as a special insert, which you'll hear at the end of the top five discussion. We appreciate JD stopping by, and hopefully next time we cross over it'll go much more smoothly! Thank you all so so much for listening! We'll see you at the movies!
