Ep 386 - It - Dave Anthony  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: IT, THOR RAGNAROK, FIFTY SHADES FREED, MOTHER, AMERICAN ASSASSAIN* Graham and Chris welcome back Dave Anthony into the ATC world headquarters. Dave and Chris liked IT just a little bit more than Graham. Everyone is confused by Hulk talking in new Thor trailer. Fifty Shades looks like a Bourne film with S and M.  Some good choices on DVD this week and then two films that can be better than expected. This ep will make you go down into the sewers. 

Spoiler Ep 63 - Death Note  

*SPOILER ALERT! KEY ELEMENTS WILL BE DISCUSSED INCLUDING ENDING* Graham and Chris have Shawn Marek in the garage to talk about al the problems with this film. 

Ep 385 - Death Note - Shawn Marek

Graham liked the indie film Gook. Shawn was mildly amused by The Layover. The Snowman looks interesting. Home Again made Chris excited while Graham will avoid it. Not great DVDs but IT looks like a great horror film! This ep comes with it's own Death God. 

Ep 384 - Dave Made A Maze - Kevin Avery  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: DAVE MADE A MAZE, PATTI CAKES, GIFTED AND MORE* Graham and Chris welcome back Kevin Avery into the ATC studios. Chris like how inventive Dave Made A Maze was. Kevin like Patti Cakes because it reminded him of his rap days. Graham was touched by Gifted. Death Note made Graham stand alone and inspired a spoiler ep. A lot of indie film talk as no big releases are out. This ep will make you want to add supreme to the end of your name. 

Ep 383 - Logan Lucky - Dennis Gubbins  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: LOGAN LUCKY, DUNKIRK, WIND RIVER, MOLLY'S GAME, REMEMORY* Chris and Graham are back in the nerd garage with Dennis Gubbins! (ATC had some tech issues but that won't stop us) Chris was let down by Logan Lucky, Dennis and Chris finally saw Dunkirk and liked it as much as Graham did. Graham wants you to see Wind River. Everyone is excited for Molly's Game and so-so on Rememory. It's wonderful to sleep with t-shirts again!

An episode that will make you be a better person and have Lacrosse legs. 

Ep 381 - The Dark Tower - Mike Schmidt  

*FILMS DISCUSSED: THE DARK TOWER, KIDNAP, DETROIT, MOTHER, DEATH WISH* Chris and Graham welcome back Mike Schmidt to the show. Mike flips out about not being in the garage.

*FILMS DISCUSSED: AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL, ATOMIC BLONDE, THE BIG SICK, READY PLAYER ONE, SUBURBICON* Chris and Graham talk to producer Aaron Brungardt about this weeks films. Graham was inspired by Inconvenient Sequel. Chris found Atomic Blonde a little uneven but overall good. The Big Sick is a really good film in Graham's eyes. Ready Player One trailer looks like Spielberg is in rare form. Suburbicon trailer has everyone a little cautious. One good DVD and then two different films in theaters this weekend. This episode is like a loyal boyfriend or girlfriend.

Jason loved Landline. Graham was amazed by Dunkirk. Chris was let down by Teen Titans. Randy thinks Big Sick should get some Oscar nominations. Chris found War For Planet of The Apes to be his favorite. Differing opinions of new Justice League trailer and some good options on DVD. An Atomic and Inconvenient episode!

*FILMS DISCUSSED: WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, CARS 3, THE BIG SICK, A WRINKLE IN TIME, BIRTH OF THE DRAGON*  Graham and Chris welcome first time guest Jason Love into ATC bunker. Jason and Graham both liked War for Planet of The Apes. Chris was not as excited as his kids about Cars 3. Jason had a good time watching The Big Sick. Wrinkle in Time trailer looks good. While Birth Of The Dragon could be too much hollywoodery. An episode from the sands of time.

*FILMS DISCUSSED: TRANSFORMERS, ROUGH NIGHT, THE BAD BATCH, PATERSON, BEATRIZ AT DINNER, BATTLE OF THE SEXES, ANNABELLE: CREATION* Graham and Chris welcome the director of Lights Out and Annabelle, David F.

This  episode is like a Battle of The Sexes for films!
