Our biggest donation for our fundraiser for the Make A Wish foundation was from one of our best friends of the show, Derek! He got to choose our first review of 2021 and he selected 1999's American Drama, "Fight Club".


Our biggest donation for our fundraiser for the Make A Wish foundation was from one of our best friends of the show, Derek! He got to choose our first review of 2021 and he selected 1999's American Drama, "Fight Club".

We discuss the darker side of this film and how the general public missed the point. We also talk about the lengths that the crew went to create this incredibly artistic film with some amazing performances. Derek joins us for our rewatch discussion and shares why he loves this movie.

This is the first review we've done in our new format, which sees a return of our Nostalgia and Rewatch reviews in the same episode. Let us know what you think!
