We’re joined this week by long time friend and fan Justin Thiele – who brings us plenty of reasons why LAST ACTION HERO is not worthy of the title of BEST SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER FILM. That’s right, folks, it’s time for another battle episode and we’ve got some great movies to talk about. Jon defends PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL but can’t say the title right. Bryan makes a scary-good case for JAWS. Chewie whisks us away to nostalgia-town with TWISTER. Ryan dons the fedora and defends RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. So, which movie wins? Just going to have to listen to the episode and find out!
