Deep Cut Recommendations

As we all know, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes and awesome places like that will always give you some recommendations… People who liked THIS also liked THIS. Your Most Excellent Hosts have their own recommendations, perhaps a bit further off the beaten track.

Nathan thinks you should check out Blues Brothers for another goofy and comedic road trip adventure.

Ryan advises you to stick with the fun of a Tim Burton and Danny Elfman collaboration and check out Ed Wood.

Krissy once again can not reign in her recommendations. She thinks that you should defintely get your hands on a copy of Danny Elfman’s Music for a Darkened Theater to hear his amazing scores of, surely, some of your favorite movies and TV series.  Krissy also thinks you should get your hands on some of the Rube Goldberg toy kits at either Amazon HERE or Target.

FURTHERMORE Krissy recommends that you rewatch all of 30 Rock just to get to S1 E12 “Black Tie” featuring guest star Paul Reubens. And that’s it… seriously… that’s ALL the recommendations!

What’s Next?
