Episode 4 – back for…war? On the eve of the end of America’s long national nightmare, and possibly the dawn of World War III, this week’s podcast is topical. I review the new Mel Gibson movie Hacksaw Ridge, the real story of medal of honor recipient Desmond Doss. A movie that lionizes its subject and delivers just enough (but not too much) schmaltz, I found it to surpass my expectations bigly (big league?). TheTimMan then joins me to discuss our 5 favorite war films of all time, and hilarity ensues.
