Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals! In this week's episode, Nick and Justin look back at the holiday classic Home Alone which turns twenty-five years old today! We also look ahead to the weekend with the release of the final film in the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay: Part II. Nick also rants about the news of a potential remake of Memento.
All this, and we shout out to two great guys, Paul and Wayne, who just did a countdown of their top ten apocalyptic films in their latest podcast. So we decided to take five of our favorites and run them off as well as a tie-in for them. Also, we officially announce our December challenge! The holiday movie challenge, or "Dust it off" December- which one will we choose? That's up to you! Vote for your favorite idea between now and the end of the month and we'll pick the winner for our December challenge.
