This week, Paul and Wayne invite along Move Pod Squad Network friend, Chris from the More Gooder Than Podcast to assist in reviewing Universal's desperate (second) attempt to kick off their own cinematic universe, The Mummy, starring Wayne's fave, Tom to the Cruise. Is this another failed effort and the latest in what is starting to look like a string of stinkers for Cruise? Or does second-time director Alex Kurtzman get it right and set up the Dark Universe so people will be begging for more?
Then the guys countdown the best ever films in which the main/lead character dies. Needless to say, there are some controversial selections along the way, and this week that matters more than ever as the guys have decided that YOU, the listener, should vote for which list wins in a poll that this week is available exclusively on the Listener Community group on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/117845618778882/?fref=nf
Chris gives as good (and better) than he gets while working through his list, and keep an ear out for his awesome laugh, which many are suggesting is even better than Wayne's...
