Bryan is back with the Nerd crew to talk about Fantasy films and the different sub-genres they encompass. We also get to some listener feedback that starts an epic quote fest of overtly British proportions.
American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them.

Those were the words that Spike Lee used to disparage Quentin Tarantino’s new epic film Django Unchained. The plot centers around a slave who is freed and becomes a bounty hunter. He then embarks on a mission to rescue his wife from a sadistic plantation owner. That’s about all that Spike Lee knows about the movie since he has not seen it and will not see it.
I was a child of the nineties. Though I was born in the early eighties, I really started making badass memories at about age seven. By that time, I was more aware of what was going on around me and had developed a full-blown obsession with movies. Many of my best childhood memories are tied to a movie or at the very least a timeframe related to a movie’s theatrical release. I’ve been in a place lately where I’ve been purchasing and revisiting these films to see what I may have missed when I was a wee one. So here we go, ladies and gents… the first in a series for your reading enjoyment!
When I saw the picture above, it blew my mind. What the hell is going on? The Pope, the spiritual leader of 1.18 billion people, is in fact controlled by the insidious Umbrella Corporation.
As I write this, I do so with great fear, for we all know what Umbrella is capable of. With the Pope now under their influence, it raises some important questions. What is Umbrella’s ultimate plan? How many of the Pope’s inner circle have been affected? Perhaps most importantly, why retire?
Kevin, Sarah and Sean talk SNL based films and a lot of memorable quotes are thrown around. Also, somebody channels The Ladies Man more than they probably should have.
