In this episode, the guys are still saving you 115 hours of wasted time searching for movies but instead of 1 "movie night" pick of the week, Chet and Rodney have THREE great "summer" movies!
These are not your typical summer blockbusters. These are movies that the guys think encapsulate all the great things that summer is all about!
In this episode we are joined by Kacey Spivey, Writer/Creator/Producer for Screen Rant. Kacey also play Daenerys Targaryen (The Mother of Dragons) in Game of Thrones the Musical.
Kacey joined the show to ask the question, “Will Dude’s Watch Female-Led Comedies?”
We took a look at some of the classic female comedians who set the foundation for modern comedy (Mary Tyler Moore, and Lucille Ball), and then talked through some of our favorite modern examples of female-led comedies.
We also heard from our listeners as they shared their favorite female comedies and paritcipated in a poll:
“For the dudes out there, are you LESS likely to watch a female-led comedy? (This is a safe place)”
71% said, “I see them the same as any comedy.”
20% said, “I don’t prefer them.”
9% said, “I’m afraid to answer.”
Join the conversation! Let us know what your favorite female-led comedies are!

We are joined again by Lyndon Wells from top10films.co.uk to discuss our Top 10 War Films.
If you love "war films" this is for you as we talk through several classics.
However, if you HATE "war films" then this is also for you since Lyndon, Chet, and Rodney do not typically gravitate towards them either.
Also, what makes a "war film"? Is Schindler's List really about war?
Lastly, Lyndon sets up a quiz where Rodney and Chet compete against one another for the right to determine the subject of the next "Top 10" episode.
10. 13 Hours (2016)
9. Enemy at the Gate (2001)
8. Black Hawk Down (2001)
7. Fury (2014)
6. Braveheart (1995)
5. The Great Escape (1963)

In this episode, we are joined by special guest Kevin Interdonato (follow him on Twitter & Facebook) to talk about extreme movie preparation. We cover everything from physique change to method acting.
Chet & Rodney have very little to add, but Kevin brings some incredible real-life experience and stories that carry the episode. We trust that you will enjoy this one and that after listening you'll also want to be checking Kevin's upcoming project, "Bad Frank".
In this episode, Chet and Rodney are joined by Jon Negroni, author of, The Pixar Theory. Jump in as Jon takes the time to respond to Down The Hall’s previous episode on his theory and gets a chance to have a little fun at Chet and Rodney’s expense.
You definitely don’t want to miss this one as all three guys laugh and talk through The Pixar Theory and Jon shares the story of how it became such a major success.
You can find more information about Jon by visiting jonnegroni.com or by interacting with him on Twitter @jonnegroni.
Do all the Pixar movies tell a story of an ongoing war between humans, animals, and machines?
Break out the tin foil hats for this one as Chet reads through the theory one movie at a time and Rodney grows increasingly fed up with the notion.
Also, how long is too long to have a Redbox movie before you decide just to keep it forever?
A person spends 115 hours each year just trying to decide on a movie to watch.
We’re here to solve that problem.
Join Chet and Rodney as they launch Down the Hall; a show dedicated to helping you determine what movies are and aren’t worth your time.
