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.

Krissy recommends John Wick 2 for another example of over the shoulder and under the arm shooting, with perhaps a little more skill and a little less flair than Danny DiVito.

Nathan recommends Alan Quartermain fims with “the Stone woman!”

Adam recommends The Rundown with Dwayne Johnson and Sean William Scott.
