or: The Sega Channel of Classic Movies.

Chris and Jake are joined by the recently returned from exile Hunter to discuss two films – the Sundance favorite The Birth of A Nation and the Land of the Rising Sun sensation Shin Godzilla! Chris picks a brew that’s “barely a beer” for the tale of Nat Turner, plus a cheeky pick for the kitschy pic. *PLUS* The Dudes discuss FilmStruck, a new cinephile-centric streaming service from Criterion Collection and TCM! *PLUS Pt. II* The latest results from Fantasy Movie League – and wouldn’t you know it, Hunter makes another ill-advised beer bet!
