Episode 517: Movie Surprises & Burgess Delights

Each year, there are the movies that perhaps are not on Mikey's, Dave's, or #TwitterlessDrEarl's top fives or top tens, but they are still movies that surprised everyone... and delighted everyone... unexpected pleasant moviegoing experiences if you will.

And every year, Friend of the Show, Miss Independent Jeremy Burgess joins up for the episode, giving his own surprises and delights.

First up, Jeremy does his usual recommendations of independent films you might not have heard of, but need to see.

Then, the guys give their Top 5 Surprise & Delights of 2021, including musicals, unexpected sax players, superhero redemptions, Frank Grillo pleases, Matt Damon love, Requels, hate for Pete Davidson, love for Pete Davidson's work, and much more.

Then, not only does Burgess pay off assigned movies for the support given to his upcoming film "Don't Die" (including reviews for Layer Cake, Extract, and Two Hands), and then final assignments for 2022's Burgentine's Day.

It truly is a Burgeyfilled kinda episode =)
