Every week, a group of Internet radio superstars known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Sean and Travis) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener, and the betterment of mankind.
This week, Tom subjects us to Reign of Fire
(2002), which pits Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey against fire breathing dragons in a post-apocalyptic England. We learn about the "Reign of Fire" Scale, what constitutes high-brow comedy, and disingenuous movie posters.
