Episode 66 – Rio Bravo
War Crimes

00:00 / 1:27:41

or: Oh, peaches!

Collider.com’s Adam Chitwood joins Chris & Jacob in the War Bunker for a War Crime review of Rio Bravo. Does the star power and comradery of John Wayne, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson, and Angie Dickinson hold up after more than 50 years? …Or should this be locked up in the back of the jailhouse and accidentally shot? *PLUS* Chris pairs the film with a beer that’s sweet, but Manly, we read some listener (hate) mail, and Jacob recaps Week 09 of the Fantasy Movie League Spring season.
