Episode 15: Point Blank (1967), The Phantom (1996), and The Village (2004)
Are you ready for controversy? Michael, Dave, and David are joined by very special guest Jeff Somogyi (Nerd Lunch Presents Down the Rabbit Hole) to talk about some divisive movies. We question Lee Marvin's murder skills, M Night Shyamalan's storytelling skills, and Billy Zane's... pronunciation of "refuse?" Okay, we don't question much about Billy Zane, but there may be another element or two in The Phantom that make us wonder. Check out the great discussion and see if you can guess the secret connection between the movies before it's revealed.
