More Episodes

To kick off 2021, Elric and Brian go back to the very beginnings of the show where they declared that their 5 film lists would "5 Films Because" as to open things up for the highlighting of not just favorites and "best" films in a category, but rather anything they'd like to highlight. As such, both of them have chosen 5 films to talk about this episode and there wasn't any rhyme or reason to the choosing. Just 5 films they each wanted to watch and films that hadn't really been chosen as picks on the show before. Enjoy!
