#73 - Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Brian and Shaun get very confused by the rules of time travel, compare the film to the novel it was adapted from, and determine the most annoying part of Tom Cruise’s face.
#72 - Elizabeth Rohrbaugh and the Real Story
Shaun talks with (mostly) documentary filmmaker Elizabeth Rohrbaugh about film’s ability to personalize experiences that may be foreign to an audience, and why that matters. Then, by request from Patreon supporter Web Bist, Brian and Shaun run dialogue from 1981’s MY DINNER WITH ANDRE.

#70 - 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Patreon supporter Ari, perhaps disappointed with Brian and Shaun’s take on Blade Runner, requests another science-fiction classic, and he may not be happy with the results (or, at least half of the results). Well, sir, there’s nothin’ on earth like a genuine, bona-fide, electrified, six-car monolith. This week: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).
#69 - Asian in America with Liz Lin
Shaun has a conversation with fellow Asian American Liz Lin, who writes predominantly about race, culture, and identity. Liz’s piece “Why Asian Americans Might Not Talk About Ferguson” struck a chord with many, both in and out of the Asian American community. Building mostly on themes presented in the piece, Liz and Shaun talk about, among other things, what it means to be neither white nor black in modern America.
#68 - All This Mayhem (2014)

#67 - Twitter Celebrity with Chris Scott

#65 - Hard Boiled (1992)
