Episode 30.5 - Titan Games Finale Commentary
Although the Titan Games wrapped up a few months ago, we're guessing you probably didn't watch it. That's okay, because the Rock Talk jabronis have you covered and are watching the finale LIVE on this episode! If you remember, Jordan and Charlie were crushed to find out their application wasn't accepted to join the Titan Games but after watching, it's understandable why they weren't chosen. This is a live commentary, so turn on Hulu, queue up the last episode of the Titan Games and watch along!

Episode 30 - Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
WE’RE BACK, BABY! After months on haitus, Rock Talk returns and we could think of no better day to come back than Dwayne Johnson’s birthday. This is the episode that almost broke us - technical delays and host relocations tried to hold us back BUT THEY COULDN’T. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is not a good movie. But it’s certainly A movie. There’s something to be said for that. The jabronis break down this odd entry into the Rock’s filmography and suffer through it so you don’t have to!

Episode 26 - San Andreas
"Who should we call?" "EVERYBODY." 2015's San Andreas, or, Dwayne Johnson vs. Earthquakes. This movie does a disaster flick EXACTLY RIGHT. We have crazy destruction, cheesy one-liners and copious amounts of product placement. Is this movie scientifically accurate? OF COURSE NOT. Mostly because all of the science is being explained to us by Paul Giamatti. But it doesn't matter when your CGI-laden movie is INSANELY FUN! Also!! Jungle Cruise starts production next week!! More details on Hobbs v. Shaw!!

Episode 24.5 - Rampage Addendum feat. Kevin Howe
It's part two of our Rampage discussion AND WE'RE FIRED UP. Why? Because the guys at @NerdyThingsPod trashed our boy DJ. WE THINK THEY MISSED A FEW THINGS.

Episode 24 - Rampage feat. Caleb Holt
Is this movie dumb? Yes, but is it dumb fun? ALSO YES. The jabronis are joined by guest Caleb Holt to discuss The Rock's newest movie, Rampage! Dwayne plays primatologist Davis Okoye who forms a bond with an albino gorilla and BLAH BLAH BLAH IT DOESN'T MATTER. All you need to know is that our boy DJ has to fight three monsters before they destroy the entire city of Chicago. THAT'S IT. SIT DOWN AND EAT SOME POPCORN, DUMMIES. Do NOT overthink this movie. So join the jabronis as they do just that in this week's episode of Rock Talk!

Episode 23 - Southland Tales
If you take the Book of Revelation and throw it in a blender with Donnie Darko, Interstellar, a few adult films and some monkey souls, THIS IS WHAT YOU GET. Southland Tales is an ambitious world-building story about a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles where entertainers are politicians and a government agency spies on Americans in the name of national security while the end of the world is afoot. Sounds interesting, right? THEN YOU WOULD BE WRONG. This movie is like that kid in your 9th grade government class that began every sentence with, "Well, actually..." EXCEPT WITH MORE MURDER. There's a lot going on here and we do our best to explain it. (You WILL have more questions, though.) And remember, PIMPS DON'T COMMIT SUICIDE. Also!! Dwayne Johnson wants Jimmy Kimmel to deliver his baby girl!! The Rock confirms Vin Diesel beef to Rolling Stone!! Join us next week as we have a VERY SPECIAL EPISODE (VSE) to cover The Rock's latest movie, RAMPAGE.

Episode 22.5 - March Madness One-Liner Bracket
MARCH MADNESS HAS HIT ROCK TALK! People love brackets. It's a fact. So when it came time to make one for Rock Talk, the jabronis knew what needed to be ranked -- ONE LINERS. Jordan and Charlie spent WAY too much time whittling down the many amazing Dwayne Johnson quotes to the 16 very best. Which one is the best? YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LISTEN. Join us next week as we take a look at one of Rocky's lesser known outings: Southland Tales.

Episode 22 - Be Cool
2005’s Be Cool. It’s just like Pulp Fiction – except everybody is much older and the writing isn’t as good! Dwayne Johnson plays Vince Vaughn’s gay bodyguard who dreams of being a big-time actor. If you like dated music references and loud mouth chewing, THIS MOVIE IS FOR YOU. It has it all: Travolta plastic surgery, Andre 3000, a speech about cultural appropriation, and DJ in a full-on cowboy outfit. Oh, and don’t ask us to explain the plot of this movie. It can’t be done. It’s crazy. It’s weird. It’s very 2005. It’s Be Cool. Also!! New Rampage contest!! Red Notice gets a release date!! DJ buys his dad a Cadillac!! Please remember to rate/review/share the show! If you know a jabroni in your life who doesn’t listen, are you really doing your job?

Episode 21 - Furious 7
EPISODE 21 IS HERE!! After a long wait, (sorry everyone) the jabronis discuss what might be the MOST EPIC movie that has ever been put to film. Furious 7 is a movie that starts at a 10 and ONLY GOES UP FROM THERE. This movie brings a few new faces into the fold (Statham! Kurt Russell!) but is quintessential FAST FARE. We have skydiving cars, building jumps, exploding helicopters AND IT GETS CRAZIER. Oh, also there are butts. Lots of butts. Get used to it. Rampage release date moves to April 13!! DJ graciously accepts his Baywatch razzie!! The Rock has a baby health scare!! If you haven’t yet, please leave an iTunes review! It’s the number one thing you can do to help the jabronis out.

Episode 19 - Hercules feat. Dylan Erwin
Dylan Erwin joins the jabronis this week to talk about 2014’s sword-and-sandals flick Hercules. If you like wisecracking soothsayers, an army of screamo band frontmen and beards made with testicle hair, THIS MOVIE IS FOR YOU. Seriously. There's a lot of beard-talk in this episode. You’ve been warned. Is Hercules truly a demigod or just a simple human mercenary? We’re not sure because WE COULDN’T TAKE OUR EYES OFF THAT BEARD. We break it all down on this week's episode of Rock Talk! Also!! Emily Blunt joins the cast of Disney’s Jungle Cruise!! Remember to review on iTunes and share the show with your friends! We all have that one weird friend who is obsessed with Dwayne Johnson. If you don’t, GUESS WHAT, BUB. IT’S YOU.
