Hello everyone and welcome to a brand new episode of the Epic Film Guys podcast! This week, we are getting DEEP on J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a movie that infuriates Nick enough to directly tweet Colin Trevorrow with a lesson in Earth Science. We dissect everything about the film that did and didn’t work for us with full spoilers!
Also this week, Nick signs up for AMC Stubs A-List and goes on a tirade against Movie Pass, and we take a look at the trailer for Creed II in Epic Previews, a film that our fans may remember that Justin was on set for a few months back.
In the patron-only segment this week we talk in-depth about the death of Vinnie Paul, drummer for the band Pantera, a band that influenced both of us deeply, and you’ll get an extra ten minutes of our Fallen Kingdom review! For only $1 a month you get extended episodes every week, early releases, special episodes and more! Thank you all so much for listening! We’ll see you at the movies!
Please make a donation to Perry & Lindsay’s GoFundMe to help them raise money for medical costs associated with Perry’s cancer diagnosis: https://www.gofundme.com/hello-cancer-wtf?member=137506.
