That's right, the film that won best picture, best actor, and caused millions of people shoehorn, "life is like a box of chocolates," into many a conversations that then went south. The question is, do @Kevin Gootee and @Kevin Israel_NJ feel his arguments fall under "stupid is as stupid does?" First o...

@StonerJesus420 (Joe Klare) joins @KevinGootee and @KevinIsrael_NJ to eviscerate TAXI DRIVER, the film that birthed thousands of s----y Robert DeNiro impressions. Joe HATES Travis Bickle like the governor of Georgia hates common sense. But do Kevin and Kevin (better than Celino and Barnes) find this film stinkier than a NYC cab in August?

Hey there you cool cats and kittens! Had enough virtual happy hours yet? Gin and vodka sales through the roof so might as well fill up a highball and listen to @Delvin_Cox try to take down the aesthetically pleasing; yet light on plot mega-hit, Avatar. @Kevin Gootee and @KevinIsrael_NJ will be your judge, jury, and executioner. Does Zoe Saldana in blue make a few body parts turn blue? Wait, that means that those bo...

David the Producer (@BehindtheRant) is going to trigger a TON of 80's babies as he takes down the Goonies. Data, Chunk, Mouth, and Mikey...no one is safe from David's warpath. But do fellow 80's kids @KevinGootee and @KevinIsrael_NJ get aboard the "I Hate One Eyed Wille" pirate ship? Or is David's argument as awful as Sloth's speech and face? And good news, we're now on Youtube! If y...

Ray Gootz (Gootz's Disney Pod and Comics Watching Comics) joins the boys to share his displeasure for one of the most influential films of the 90's, Jurassic Park. Ray eviscerates this film like a Raptor, T-Rex, and the tiger that got a hold of Carole Baskins husband (allegedly). Kevin Israel is a STAUNCH JP supporter and Kevin Gootee is a somewhat fan as well. Can Gootz sway both Kevins that this film is a pile of stego...

Hope you're not going all Jack Nicholson from the Shining being stuck in quarantine. So let's lighten your load for all the free time you have on your hands. Keren Margolis despises Titanic and wished Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet sunk on that ship with every single copy of that film. But can she convince Kevin Gootee and Kevin Israel that this film should go away like Billy Zane's career did. First off, THAN...

We're back and with a flourish. @JohnFugelsang (Sirius XM, VH1, Coyote Ugly) targeted one of America's most treasured classics: Gone With the Wind. That's right, the HIGHEST grossing film of all time (adjusted for inflation) is the one John chose to make @Kevin Gootee and @Kevin Israel sit through nearly FOUR HOURS of Scarlett O'Hara act like a whiny b--ch. Do Kevin and Kevin frankly not give a damn a...

What is the favorite film of most women? Pretty Woman. You know who hates Pretty Woman? @Gerard Haran LOATHES it.

We believe that this episode is definitely going to strike a nerve. @MarkRiccadonna joins @KevinGootee and @KevinIsrael to throw a fan favorite film into the wood chipper and that film...the Hangover. This ranks as a lot of people's FAVORITE comedy; especially in the last 10 years. Does Mark nail this argument like Mike Tyson nailed Ed Helms with a right cross? Or is his argument small and insignificant like Ken...

Linette Palladino (Comics Watching Comics on Amazon Video and featured in the NY Times) is a badass lady. She's a comedian, mom, and a captain in the US Army. However, she chose a film that's near and dear to both Kevins' hearts...Pulp Fiction. That's right, she does not enjoy the tale of Vince, Jules, and the Gimp.

This episode starts off differently than most as Kevin Gootee, Kevin Israel, and Mo Vida discuss their feet. Why? Because Mo put up a picture of her feet on IG and had several people put in cash offers for feet photos. After that hullaballoo, Mo Vida attempts to sway Kevin and Kevin that Stallone sucks in everything he does and that Rocky is no exception. Does Mo walk out of there with the title belt? Or does her argument end ...
