2022-06-11 • Saturday Matinée

Pete, Kyle, and Tommy are in the Saturday Matinée this week for vamps on planes, VHS nostalgia, and a watchlist of movies about fans and fanatics!

Pete and Kyle did their homework and have a report on their watch of Blood Red Sky. Even more, Kyle watched Always and reports it might have been better had there been vampires on those planes. Tommy’s been Benjamin Buttoning his rewatch of Mission: Impossible and just wrapped up his watch of “Under the Banner of Heaven.”

We have no game this week, and in its stead, Kyle brings a walk down memory lane with a grueling inquiry into our film history.


The list this week takes us into the world of fandom with films about fans and fanatics.

  1. The Banger Sisters
  2. Fanboys
  3. Galaxy Quest

Tommy’s List

  1. Mother!
  2. Misery
  3. Moneyball

Pete’s List
