Episode 278: The Film Four (Movie Year Tourney Part VIII)

It's getting down to the bare bones of the Greatest Movie Year Ever Tournament, as only FOUR years remain.  And it's time to find the finalists.

Helping Dave, Mikey, and Pinky are guests on the Binder & Binder hotline, first with our favorite Michigander podcaster Remodeling Clay Shaver, and then Wit Stillman fan, Brie Lover (Alison, Cheese and Larson), Terence Malick Apologist, Film Historian AND the worlds greatest octonologist, Dr Earl.

And to add even more to the show, the guys bring on the co-host of the TechnoRetro Dads podcast, the man known to the world as Shazbazzar, aka, Shaz.

First up, a new game to discuss Adam Sandler and Netflix, Jeff Goldblum's Jurassicness, and Will Smth as... The Genie?  It's a game called "Word Up!" which also introduces Remodeling Clay's new theme song!

Then, a visit to Episode 274, with the 1989 defeat over 1982, and Shaz's big issue with it. Shaz gives a genre by genre rundown of 89 vs 82 (even though, let's be honest, it doesn't matter)...  including the movie that will fit the bill in case you are looking for some Casual Racism.

The first battle becomes so difficult, the show called in ANOTHER special guest to help decide as Shaz takes on d$ for the win... with Shaz firing an "Ad Hominem Attack"
