    Crazy Rich Asians (featuring Passport People)

    Tune in to hear our thoughts on fashion montages, the timeless fabulousness of Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina stealing every scene she's in and why Henry Golding is the real villain of this movie. 

    We also brainstorm drinking games, pitch sequel ideas and get a deep-dive into Singapore's cultural history courtesy of Fin!

    The Rock

    The Rock

    The Michael Bay film it's officially OK to like, The Rock benefits from one of the all-time great action movie pairings in Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery, with a little help from Ed Harris as a morally conflicted veteran soldier.

    On this week's podcast, we discuss military masturbation, Elton John-themed death scenes, ludicrous gay stereotypes and much more as we break down this ridiculous but entertaining entry into the Cagemas Canon!

Loved The 2nd Idea

Only thing you need to fix is Agador’s family who moved to New Jersey and that’s how he ended up in the States. :) But otherwise, brilliant. I want to see this movie!

Stolen Ideas for Content

One of the hosts of this podcast has been stealing movie sequel ideas from a private group and passing them off as “listener submissions” for years.
