X-Men: The Last Stand, while the most commercially successful in the series until X-Men: Days of Future Past, split audiences about the quality of the film itself. A lot of that criticism may have to do with the fact that three different directors were attached to the production of the film from script to screen which was rushed to theaters on Memorial Day weekend 2006. Sam and Chris both regard the film as watchable...but they've made that assertion before. Does the third X-Men film still hold up as well as they remember or as poorly as Jake and Josh remember? Watch along and listen to find out!

Sam and Jake are back talking about the first album in what Sam refers to as the Fab Four's middle period. With touring beginning to wind down and Beatlemania subsiding, The Beatles began to grow more comfortable with pushing themselves in their songwriting and experimenting with different elements within the recording studio...experimenting with more drugs too! Rubber Soul marks John Lennon's last major presence as the dominant force within the band, the official songwriting debut of Ringo Starr, and the documented beginnings of George Harrison's love of Indian culture. Strap yourselves in, The Beatles are taking things to the next level!
