Episode 543: The Directors 1-2 Punch

The podcast takes another stop towards 500, and ultimately Episode 600 (circa Sept 2023), the losers winners of #FanboySummer continue! This time, Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in past and future guest, and Discord chatterbox Jacob Roth, aka, Roth from Wyoming, aka co-host of A Good Day for a Podcast to discuss 1-2 punches.

First up, July Birthday Movies, including both Men in Blacks (mens in black?),  a Katy Perry concert film, squealing like a pig, and the stacked July of 1987. 

Then, a quick chat about this past weekend's San Diego Comic Con, specifically the Marvel stage and all the upcoming titles and Phases.

Roth from Wyoming brings the topic this time, with the best 1-2 punches from directors... the best back to back, non-franchised films from the same director across movie history.

As usual, a little pretension but maybe not from #TwitterlessDrEarl... a John Landis love fest... which Spielberg do you choose... what is a Thanksgiving movie... forgetting George Lucas... and the best back to back to back Hitchcock...
