This week on the show we’re reviewing the brand-new Alex Garland penned and directed Annihilation, starring Natalie Portman! We couldn’t do it alone, however, and we’re dragging in the SAUCE himself to help us out. Also this week, Justin and LoySauce give a brief review of Game Night, and we’re giving away not one, not two, but THREE digital blu-ray codes! Want your chance to win? Then you’ve gotta listen!
For our patrons this week, Justin talks about inappropriate behavior with Tommy Wiseau. Thank you so much for listening! We’ll see you at the movies!
We’re now in planning for the Livestream for the Cure 2.0 and we’re signing up guests for programming blocks on the show.

Friends of the Show
We’d like to give a huge shout-out for a lot of the shows we’re proud to call friends, and that we’re proud to call ourselves fans of. We especially have to thank our brothers in Perth, Paul & Wayne of The Countdown Movie & TV reviews, who have opened us up to a huge audience halfway across the world. Particular thanks to Paul who has been an amazing friend and has been infinitely helpful in terms of getting honest feedback on the evolution of the show. A huge thank you to Emily from The Story Behind podcast, whose support and friendship have kept this show alive through some of its darkest days. A huge thank you to some of our biggest podcasting friends, from Mr. X at the Angry Old Man, Shane from Now That I’m Older, David from The Unwritable Rant, Adam from Everyone Has a Podcast, Ro from the World of Ro, the entire crew at Afterburn 739, Mat at the One Word, Go! show, Justin from So I Married a Movie Geek, and Deana from the Twisted Philly podcast. We’re probably forgetting someone, so thank you to ALL of you! We truly do love and appreciate your support.
We also have to give a huge shout out to #PodernFamily for helping to increase our exposure, and safe to say without it we wouldn’t have met a lot of the podcasters and fans we’re proud to call friends. We also want to give a huge shout out to the #MoviePodSquad, a group of movie podcasters in the #PodernFamily who have come together for our mutual love of film.
