Over the course of recording episodes, both JT and Jeremy noticed a recurring pattern of movies with far too low Metacritic scores - it particularly caught our eye when discussing Wall Street, with a mere 56 on the ol’ MC. Now it’s no perfect movie or anything, but if the Jaden Smith Karate Kid remake gets a 61, and Oliver Stone’s own take on JFK has a 72, well, #justsayin. And if Superbad has a 76, how does Ferris Bueller’s Day Off only get a 61? And we’d agree that the witty Midnight Run deserves its 78 score, but shouldn’t a classic like Beverly Hills Cop be sitting in the mid-80s? Enjoy our take on the absolutely criminally underrated movies of our times.
