Congo (w/Everything I Learned from Movies)

At least the guys technically watched a somewhat-coherent movie this week. Brendan and a very special guest co-host are joined by Congo superfans Steve and Izzy from Everything I Learned from Movies to discuss the Michael Crichton adaptation followup to Jurassic Park starring Laura Linney and a talking gorilla. The gang discuss everything from Steve and Izzy’s absolute undying love of this film, all of the insane accents, terrible CGI lava, the love story between Peter and Amy the gorilla, Delroy Lindo’s cameo and much more.


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