Director/writer Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pulled their talents together and created a fan-favorite trilogy of movies that feature zombies, rural cops, and a pub crawl to end all pub crawls.

We explore such notions as truly testing Liam Neeson's special set of skills (Taken 1-3), how inconsiderate it was for Forrest Gump (1994) to eat Jenny's chocolates, whether Bee (Samara Weaving) is actually "evil" and how old she might be,...


Episode 128 (A Cure for Wellness)
