Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

We’ve got another podcast by request of one of our Patreon subscribers, with Hallvar∂ur asking us to take a look at the dark and paranoid world of shadow governments and secret societies with our top 5 conspiracy thrillers. Stories of hapless, helpless protagonists stumbling into serpentine mazes of amoral men in shadowy rooms pulling strings to guide the course of the world to God knows what end were at their peak in popularity in the 1970s, but they existed before then and continue to exist as long as there’s an irresistible tug to the feeling, as you look around the world, that things just aren’t… quite… right.

In Worth Mentioning, Tim covers Paw Patrol: The Movie, Carrie catches The Jungle Cruise at the drive-in and Rob continues Phase 1 of the MCU with his kids.
