Episode 92: Dunkirk

Josh, Jacob, Kenny, Kevin, Matt, their names are your names too. For a movie as big as "Dunkirk" It takes five hosts to get this right. Even though the film is a historical event Kevin and Jacob discuss their reaction to the film version of the ending. Meanwhile Kenny and Josh feel the character development is a bit lacking. Matt feels as though this movie was created specifically for him as he claims it to be "One of the best theater experiences he has ever had." The discussion is great and the film ends up spreading the board when it comes to the ratings.
