5 out of 5 Megatons!

I love listening to the hosts analyze these movies and the nuclear issues found in them. What plot device could be more "explosive" than a nuclear bomb?! But, how realistic is the nuclear event in your favorite movie? Do you care? I do. I can't help it - I'm Super Critical. If you are, too, you'll radiate while listening to this podcast.

Great show!

Thanks for this fun show. It can be a little long sometimes but keeps my interest.

My favorite dumb plot line is how space movies ignore gravity. Even in Star Wars, every planet seems to have breathable air and the same gravity as everywhere else. Doesn't make any sense.

Anyway, thanks again for the show. Keep up the good work.
