    S2E39 - Alice and Animation

    We look no further than Netflix with 'The Life Ahead' for this week's opener. And as we move ahead, Evan has a competitive game for Cody and Conner with something he likes to call, 'Disney or Despot.' The boys are than excited to jump back into the 50s Decade Project. This week the boys discuss Conner's pick of 'Alice in Wonderland' and get real nerdy on the animation behind this film and the evolution of it with Disney in general.

    S2E38 - His House / Rear Window

    S2E38 - His House / Rear Window

    This is our podcast and this is Remi Weekes directorial debut: 'His House.' After the boys discuss the classic spin on the haunted house story, their attention is turned to games. A misfit game segment, but just know it is centered around the box office. This leads into Cody's week 2 the 1950s decades project 'Rear Window.' Alfred Hitchcock, James Stewart, and Grace Kelly all deliver here to produce something perfect.

    S2E37 (The BIG 50) - Praise, Reflection, and A Face in the Crowd

    We did it! Hooray! The boys have made it to the BIG 50th episode. They take a segment to reflect on this wild and wacky adventure as well as where they see things going moving forward. In the spirit of 50, Cody has brought back Conner to go head to head against Evan in a new game called 50/50.  To kick of the start of the month and continue with a bang, the boys tackle and bring back a favorite segment  with 'The 50's Decades Project.' First up is Evan's pick: 'A Face in the Crowd.' We thank you all and hope to continue the fun here at STR. Cheers, "Clink"

    S2E36 - Borat Subsequent MovieFilm / On The Rocks

    S2E36 - Borat Subsequent MovieFilm / On The Rocks

    The boys are back and tackling a double feature. Speaking of being back at it, America has once again been graced by the number 4 journalist in all of Kazakhstan. Borat is back and up to his same antics in his 'Borat Subsequent MovieFilm.' There is no mute button on this back and forth conversation. Evan then brings the game, 'On the Fence,' in lieu of what has felt like an endless 2020. Can Cody recall the year in which these not so well known films were released? And lastly, Sofia Coppola is back behind the camera with 'On the Rocks,' starring an electric Bill Murray. We guarantee this one will be very nice!
