In this first of two episodes celebrating Veterans Day and honoring great achievements during World War II, contributor Don Shanahan from Every Movie Has a Lesson joins us to discuss a film that recounts the incredible success of a particular B-17 bombing crew and puts us right there alongside a great cast of characters to experience the danger these airmen faced and how they managed together.
We celebrate the kick-off of football season by discussing Rudy, our August Donor Pick. This film provided us with a great opportunity to debate whether made-up content in a biopic can affect our level of inspiration. We also spend plenty of time gushing about all of the reasons Rudy is one of our favorite football movies.
Hey, you guys! This week’s film was determined via listener vote, and you chose a beloved 80’s adventure movie with plenty to talk about. For one of us it’s full of nostalgia and for the other it’s a totally new experience. But ultimately we both land on common ground in thinking that this is one of the most fun and well done adventure films we’ve seen. It’s a great conversation about how when we view a movie affects our experience, and we hope you enjoy.
