We’ve got a great show for you to sink your jaws into this week, as we take a swim with The Meg!
Jay was joined by a couple of newcomers, Tim Costa and Doug Jamieson to discuss whether The Meg deserves to sink or swim at the box office. For such a B-grade movie concept the discussion went in some surprising directions as we covered the Oscars, Hitchcock, Marvel and Geostorm in far greater detail than anyone expected. Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a return of the game where Jay loses his mind.
