Description

Jason Concepcion and Shea Serrano discuss two movies and the things that connect them. Each episode will focus around a theme. That theme can be anything from characters from similar movievations, merciless mentors, and killer robots. They will then break down the connections of that main theme through a series of segments and games to share their love for not only these two movies, but cinema and its themes as a whole.
