New Episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!!

What’s going on everyone, we’re back with another episode of (title pending) for you!

This time up, Tank and I help you get ready for “Back to School” by recommending some great flicks that revolve around the scholastic experience. Not a top ten list per se, just a discussion of some of our favorite movies set in or about school! “Back to School”, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Lean on Me”, “The Breakfast Club”… we got you covered, check it out!

It’s a really fun discussion, and serves as a good counterpoint to the lackluster movies that were offered last week. In fact, the box office suffered a bit of a historic slump last weekend. Tank and I will bring you up to speed in the “Box Office Roundup”… and then I’ll tell you where it’s at with the two new releases, “The Words” and “The Cold Light of Day”.

It was a really fun episode, you should definitely check it out! You can download it directly, here, or look for us on iTunes using the keywords (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!
