In this episode of the show, we are taking a convict-filled plane to the 90s to talk about Con Air. Over the course of our discussion you will hear us wonder how this movie functions as a distillation of the 90s tropes, how it is a quintessential Jerry Bruckheimer production and how it attempts to capitalize on the success of the early Michael Bay movies. We also share quite a few laughs at the expense of the film's writing choices, characterizations and some elements of its aesthetic that perhaps didn't age very well over time.
Tune in and enjoy!
