    All The Best Bits - Rocky IV (with Pierce Ryan)

    All The Best Bits - Rocky IV (with Pierce Ryan)

    Back by popular demand, Pierce Ryan (writer of Standby and Black '47, and special guest of Episode 23 of The Best Bits) rejoins Will and Kevin on this punch-drunk entry of "All The Best Bits". In this commentary for Stallone's montage-laden overly '80s entry in the Rocky franchise, Will, Kevin and Pierce watch and comment on the film that, by all highly disputed accounts, ended The Cold War. The ultimate Rocky movie. The one, the only Rocky IV.

    Best Whodunit Scene (with C. Robert Cargill)

    Best Whodunit Scene (with C. Robert Cargill)

    When it comes to Whodunnits, many names come to mind, Raymond Chandler, Agatha Christie, Otto Preminger, but when it comes to who brought it? Will and Kevin's extra special guest co-host did. A writer of five books, four movies, and the host of one long-running podcast.

    C. Robert Cargill is the author of the critically acclaimed novels "Sea Of Rust" and "Day Zero"; he's also one-half of the popular podcasting duo (with Brian Salsbury) of Junkfood Cinema and he's the co-screenwriter of box office blockbuster films "Sinister", "Sinister 2", "Doctor Strange", and the upcoming Scott Derrickson horror film based on the Joe Hill short story "The Black Phone".

    In a killer episode that spans all genres and eras of whodunnits, Will, Kevin and Cargill thoroughly investigate this week's scene theme in an effort to solve the ultimate crime - that of attempting to pick a Best Whodunnit Scene!
