After talking about some smaller films lately, the guys talk about what may be the most popular film on the entire list - Monty Python's Life of Brian. Along with the endless quotable dialogue, the guys also discuss the beautiful production design that elevates said comedy, a dicey scene in regards to trans representation, the left-wing political satire that compares to modern-day American government, all of the blasphemy accusations hurled at the film at the time and more. Plus: everyone learns all about 'tall poppy' syndrome.

The guys also roll the dice to find out what they'll be watching next week. Join us, won't you?
