We're finally doing it! The absolute classic that is Back to the Future and the total joy of watching Mj Fox and C Llyod together.

Geostorm: Abi and Freda Uncut
It's another UNCUT special, back to our eighth episode and third ever dumb science movie! A two brothers classic: Geostorm. This week you get 20 extra minutes of our incredulity at the ridiculousness of this movie! EnjoyWe've got frozen deserts, exploding cities, giant tsunamis and #airlockdrama! Abi tries to understand the scientific and economic logistics of a space net while Freda just wants this movie to flush itself out of her brain. It hurts all the science parts.

It's episode 5/5 of our Teenage Dirtbag miniseries! Grease is the darkest happy movie we ever saw. Revisiting this one is a hoot. Jan really wasn't fat at all, Rizzo thinks being easy is not as bad as being coy or stealing for that matter (there's worse things she can do y'all), everyone is too hard on Frenchie and the biggest effort Danny seems to go to is putting on a cardigan. Enjoy!
Angels & Demons
Angels & Demons (2009)Antimatter bombs, the god particle, science vs religon! This movie has it all! A bioentanglement physicist (what even is that?), a daredevil symbologist (why did TH do this to us 3 times!), a scottish/italian/irish helicopter flying priest, a murdered pope, a conspiracy, a secret society! I mean what else do you want from Ron Howard! Even the science isn't that off! What is happening?Ok but seriously, the movie is dumb and no we don't forgive Tom Hanks!
