In 1977, stuntman Hal Needham envisioned a road comedy about a couple of modern-day bootleggers trying to get a semi full of illegal beer from Texas to Georgia while being doggedly pursued by a deranged lawman. Aiding to this venture was Needham's roommate and budding star Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, country music star Jerry Reed and comedy icon Jackie Gleeson. What was a film that no one wanted to make was the second-highest grossing film of the year, only outdone by Star Wars. But does this film still have the moves or does it deserve to be busted? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and guests Wing and Shark Taco from Legends Podcast join in on the pursuit in this final run for Arthouse Summer 2016.

In 1984, the most successful stars of comedy joined forces to make a film about an trio of scientists who start a new business venture in paranormal investigation and elimination, or shortly put, Ghostbusters.

In 1996, director Roland Emmerich and writing partner Dean Devlin released a summer blockbuster that became one of the most discussed films of the year about an alien apocalypse that mixed human melodrama with state of the art visual effects and broad comedy. The result was Independence Day, which became one of the most successful films of the decade and launched star Will Smith into superstardom while cementing the legacy of Jeff Goldblum. But does the film deserve it's status as a pinnacle of 90s cinema or should the lady of magnanimous girth belt out her final tome for the film? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and All Things Good and Nerdy's Willie Nelson kick the tires and light the fires to find out.

In the summer of 2015 with superhero films coming out at breakneck speed and anticipation for a new Star Wars film building, what very few expected to be the clamoring to the theaters for was the fourth and decades-dormant Max Max sequel directed by 72-year-old creator George Miller and starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron about a post-apocalyptic chase involving a warlord and a bevy of beautiful brides. But did the film deserve the international adoration (and subsequent Academy Awards nominations)? Or should it be buried in the sand? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and Special Guest Jeannie from Tyrion's Landing strap in to find out.
