138: The Wrestler

12/11/2018
More
The Wrestler is a fan favorite (and a Max favorite) was a joy to watch — even though it's an emotional ride.

9/25/2018
More
This week, Max picked THE IRON GIANT (1999) as his 96% selection! This animated film is beloved by many, but didn't do that well in theaters.
