Episode 13! Or if we're going by Roman numerals, XIII! It actually makes sense to use Roman numerals this time as in this episode we breakdown the 1959 biblical epic 'Ben-Hur'. With a whopping 3 and a half hour run time, Can this film maintain our focus and enjoyment from beginning to end? Listen along as Dean explains the process of auto-erotic asphyxiation, Daniel explains the best uses for honey and vinegar, and we get into a feud about the differences between 'favourite' and 'best'.
As well as this breakdown, we also partake in another quiz, find out the results of last weeks Twitter poll movie draft, and take some listener feedback. We then move into talking about what else we've seen during the week, including reviews for 'A Quiet Place', and a spoiler free AND spoiler filled discussion on the latest MCU juggernaut 'Avengers: Infinity War.' We then finish it of by doing this weeks movie draft, where the topic is 'MCU Films.'
