Tom Cruise

PODCAST: “American Made” Movie Review (and Tom Cruise’s Butt-Double)

I saw American Made (starring Tom Cruise and directed by Doug Liman) last night with two of my movie buddies, Andrew Conway and Mark Walters of BigFanboy.com. Then we had to sit down and come to terms with the fact that Tom Cruise is 55-freaking-years-old! How is that even possible??? Is American Made worth your time and hard earned money? Will you really get to see Tom Cruise’s naked butt or is that a butt-double? Listen to the podcast below to find out!

PODCAST: “mother!” Movie Review & Punctuation Debate

We simply couldn’t stop talking about mother! after seeing it the other night. We debated, then agreed, then flat out fought about it’s meaning and whether or not it has any merits. So, are you planning to see mother! this weekend? If so, you might want to listen to my chat with Rebekah Black and Chic (Red Carpet Crash) from Wednesday night. Given a chance, we’d probably still be sitting at Trinity Hall drinking and fighting about it!
