Aloha (w/John Ellis)

Summer hits just keep on comin’ as Nathan and Brendan dive into the living, breathing culture of Hawaii with a flat, forcefully quirky uninteresting film by Cameron Crowe – Aloha. Joining the guys this week is John Ellis and he has many questions (spoiler alert: not a lot of answers). They talk about quirky dialogue in place of character development, the casting of Emma Stone as someone who is one-quarter Chinese, the genre seemingly changing every few minutes, rock concerts in Hawaii, funny hats and much more.


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