Patreon Pick: Speed 2 – Cruise Control

This episode is brought to you by Patron Dannie!

This week, Nathan and Brendan reach into the Patreon Picks for Speed 2: Cruise Control, the sequel that absolutely no one was asking for… ever. They discuss things like Willem Dafoe’s leeches, the ice cream truck chase scene, the creepy relationship with Jason Patric and an underage deaf girl, wi-fi technology in 1997 and much more. Plus: Brendan has a personal story about Jason Patric. The guys also learn a lot about The Straight Story.

The guys also drop a hint for next week’s movie (“Coyote made love to ma face!”). Check on Facebook or Twitter on Monday for the reveal!
