Episode 137 – Hot Garbage on the Pacific Rim


Hello everyone and welcome back to another week of the Epic Film Guys podcast as we have some bigtime movie reviews to churn through this episode! The Nick’s Rants theme, silent for so long, finally makes its return as Nick and Justin (mostly Nick) trash all over the brand new Pacific Rim: Uprising, in a sequel that had everything going for it to be better *cough*no Charlie Hunnam*cough* and somehow still managed to fail.

Also this week, Justin checks in with a short review of the new Wes Anderson film Isle of Dogs, and in Epic Previews we’re reviewing the trailer for Under the Silver Lake starring Andrew Garfield. All this and more news about the Livestream for the Cure 2.0 which is now less than two months away! Thank you so much for listening! We’ll see you at the movies!

The marquee at the Mahoning Drive-in was destroyed due to terrible weather and it needs your help to save it! Please visit https://www.gofundme.com/save-the-mahoning-marquee and donate what you can to protect this amazing historical marquee.

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.
