Director Showdown is an idea that came about after months of intense arguments between Brent Carroll and Adam Daufen about which famous director was better: Spielberg or Kubrick? From those arguments, season one was created. Each new season pits two new directors against each other, and every week Adam and Brent get together to make their case - sometimes with help from guests.

    GOTTI

    GOTTI

    It’s our first random grab-bag bonus episode this season, and we decided to watch Kevin Connolly’s ‘Gotti’. It’s a truly awful movie that the guys had a lot of fun watching, with plenty of fun things to get into about what makes it such a badly executed riff on gangster movie tropes. There’s a lot of Scorsese talk in this one, what makes this movie feel so immature and derivative, as well as John Travolta’s weird and pretty tragic life and career. Brent also has a pretty long tangent about watching all of Entourage. It’s a bit of a wacky one, so we hope you enjoy.

    Adam and Brent welcome back season-opener Erik Casarez to the podcast to close out the season with ‘Jojo Rabbit’! The guys get into their favorite moments in the movie, what they believe Waititi’s intention to be in making it, and their final season rankings (and winner???). It’s a great one to cap the season and we want to thank everyone for listening along and showing it to a friend, it’s a been a blast, despite the world coming to a halt around us. Stay home, stay safe, and stay tuned for a bonus episode as well as our 5th Dealers Choice episode!

Some good ol’ boys

Hysterical, very insightful deep dives on movies but more than anything these are just fun
You can tell the hosts are best friends, and that they just love film, as the chemistry is what truly elevates these goofs and makes director showdown a must have podcast
