or: Can I Borrow Your Flamethrower?


To celebrate the launch of our new limited series, The Carpenter Shop, we’re re-broadcasting our special Halloween 2016 review of John Carpenter’s The Thing. Do The Dudes see the humanity in this film, or is it as cold and alien as a creepy crawly head-spider? Grab a flamethrower and handful of dynamite, because there’s a 75% chance at least one of us has been infected by the intruder organism!

And what overlooked animated classic does Jacob consider to be the greatest musical of all time? Discover the answer to all these questions and more in our review of La La Land!  PLUS – Chris pairs the fleet-footed musical with an impeccable imperial stout and The Dudes dispatch some really rad recommendations!

Our Cajun correspondent, Jacob “Mad Man” Graves, drops by to help Chris buzz the tower for a special 30th-anniversary review of Tony Scott’s 1986 film, Top Gun. Chris pairs it with an IPA that’s sure to push the envelope of your taste buds and the guys play a game of fantasy casting for a sequel sure to be titled Top Gun 2: Return 2 the Danger Zone.

Production note: Jacob is currently confined to a secret, subterranean bunker located somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Apologies for the sound quality on his end.
