Hunter has disappeared off  the face of the Earth, so Chris’s bayou-bestie, Jacob Graves, stops by for a better-late-than-never review of Mad Max: Fury Road, Chris interviews musician-turned-filmmaker Beau Jennings about his new film The Verdigris: In Search of Will Rogers, and the dudes basically just list off a bunch of movie characters cursed with ambition in Special Features.
