xXx: The Return of Xander Cage (w/Home Video Hustle)

The guys bring back their favourite hustler, Brent (of the Home Video Hustle podcast!), to discuss Vin Diesel’s love letter to himself – xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. The guys talk about how every character thinks (and says) that Xander is so freakin’ cool, they discuss the one team member whose specialty is running into bullets and crashing his car, the absurd grenade/hot potato scene is broken down, Ice Cube’s pointless cameo makes everyone shrug and much more!


The guys also drop a hint for next week’s movie. Check on Facebook or Twitter on Monday for the reveal!
