If the Flintstones taught us anything, it's that the Stone Age was a hot property in the 1960s. Join Tom and Ryan as we sit down to witness a film capitalizing on cavemen popularity while throwing dune buggies and shaving cream into the mix. We also discuss such relevant topics as the Bible, camping and survival tips, and women's names as song titles. So stop chatting with those dead ancestors of yours and listen in on our review of Eegah!

Saving Private Ryan. The Hurt Locker. Letters from Iwo Jima. War films draw their audience into the bleak, harsh realities of the battlefield and through the extreme conditions of battle. But forget all that, let's watch a war film that's mostly about livestock and a guy getting married! Tom and Ryan dig into this strange (and strangely boring) piece of 50s cinema while discussing dowries, dictionaries, and dueling your superiors. It's our review of Suicide Battalion!

Under the sea! Under the sea! Darling it's better down where it's wetter, except for this movie! Join Tom and Ryan as they review an undersea disaster film that tries, and fails, to rip off The Poseidon Adventure. Along the way we discuss the many aquatic escapades of Ernest Borgnine, what this movie gets right and wrong about deep-sea creatures, and what exactly makes a disaster movie a disaster movie. It's our review of The Neptune Factor!

Roll for initiative! You're about to begin an epic encounter with a movie that's basically an extended PSA about how Dungeons and Dragons is evil! Don't worry, you've got your faithful party members, Tom and Ryan, at your side; they're ready to fight, but also ready to talk about subjects such as why this film is a poor representation of the roleplaying experience, what "Satanic panic" was all about, and whether we can use this film to torpedo Tom Hanks's career. Draw your swords, ready your spells, and get ready for our review of Mazes and Monsters!
