Episode 71 - The Rock

Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and.... listen to Rocket Man on the roof of their apartment building.  Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, and Ethan as we're heading to The Rock on a BOYS NIGHT in search of misguided military vets and glass encased toxic gas. It's a (only borrowed) Hum-Vee of a 71th episode as we discuss:

  • How a member of the panel needs to be convinced that kidnapping makes you a villain
  • Who was initially the first choice for the part of John Mason
  • You won't believe who the ghostwriters on this film were
  • What theory is there about Mason's backstory
  • Why does the film forget all about Ed Harris and his men for 45 minutes?
  • Why Michael Bay was so adamant about shooting on location
  • If we're really supposed to believe that Stanley Goodspeed is a nerdy guy and why that makes no sense whatsoever
  • The plothole that Michael Bay discovered and his feelings about it
  • How easily General Hummel and his men could have won the film
  • Which part made Michael Bay walk off set and which sequence was the hardest for him to shoot
  • One of the panel can't say 'Alcatraz'
  • We reveal the results of our series of "Which Friend would we all be" polls from last wee
  • Whether or not The Rock is the Best Film Ever
