Episode Description:

We were lucky enough to see the Hateful Eight in glorious 70mm film, which we discuss this week. We also talk about where this movie stands in relation to Quentin Tarantino’s other works.

We stayed up to watch Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit, and it was every bit the war that we expected it to be (and then some). We also saw Creed this weekend, so we talk a little bit about both real life and cinematic face punching.

Making a Murderer is streaming on Netflix, and while it’s not exactly lowbrow, it possibly the most important original content that Netflix has ever done. It’s a real life documentary about a man framed for murder due to police misconduct. We also saw the new episodes of Idris Elba’s Luther, in which he plays a gritty murder detective who doesn’t play by the rules. In this episode, we spend some time contrasting the cop dramas that we have come to love and the real life stories of police behavior gone wrong.

Show Notes:

Alex could not for the life of him pronounce his name, but Ennio Morricone is one of the greatest cinematic music makers of all time, and he did the score for the Hateful Eight. He is probably most famous for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
