#275: Overlooked DVD Picks / Top 5 Tearjerkers
It’s alive! Not to be outdone by Netflix's crack team of engineers and mathematicians who recently revamped the efficacy of the company's online DVD recommendation system, Adam and Matty roll out a high-powered movie recommendation machine of their own -- the Rec-o-Matic 2600 (beta). Powered by beer and our co-hosts own sense of self-admiration, Adam and Matty harness the power of the Rec-o-Matic to complement their slate of suggested Overlooked DVD Picks. And while it’s generally accepted that there’s no crying in podcasting, the boys offer up a powerful theoretical lineup for Lifetime's "Movies That Make Men Cry" Marathon with their Top 5 Tearjerkers. Ladies, take notes on why lines such as "Shane! Come back, Shane" can bring NFL linemen to their knees.
Also on the show: Music by Alligators, Listener Feedback and Massacre Theatre -- presented by Pixar Talk. This week's winner will get the Pixar DVD of their choice.
