Snooty and Goon check into a hotel filled with mystery, intrigue, betrayal, and some delicious abs on Chris Hemsworth. Is the El Royale really a bad time? Has every hack reviewer made that same joke already? Listen in and find out!
Movies that are based on a true story are a tricky affair by themselves. But movies that are note-for-note a true story, right down to casting the actual people who lived that story, are another thing entirely. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it even interesting? Find out with Snooty and Goon!
And the WWII veteran/actor Snooty was trying to think of is Audie Murphy. Look him up, because he's got an amazing story of his own.
Breaking News! It's 2018, and the government is still at war with news media! Join Snooty and Goon as they watch Spielberg's historical, allegorical, illuminative take on a 1970s scandal and its implications for the world today. And to make sure you pay attention, it stars Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep!
It's the final review of the year, and that can only mean one thing: one last chance for Snooty and Goon to argue over the release of a holiday feel-good family musical. Once they're done tearing each other to shreds, stick around for their best and worst picks of 2017!
And for even more musical explorations...
It's a true story, and an incredible story, but is it a good story to make into a movie? Snooty and Goon grapple with that question as they follow the exciting life and times of Tom Cruise as a patriotic smuggler extraordinaire!
Editor's Note: Snooty can't correctly say the last name of director Doug Liman because he's secretly also a goon. Don't tell anyone.
And for a shorter version of the film...
Classic war movies feature cigar-chomping, fearless, John-Wayne-type macho men as their leads.

You'd wind up with this week's retro review, which takes Snooty and Goon on a WABAC trip to Bletchley Park in World War II. Don't forget your crosswords!
