This week GTTP tackles one of the best crime drama films of the last 20 years....that also happens to star Batman, The Dark Knight.

They do however rightly shine a light on the underrated Gary Oldman beast performance as Commissioner Gordon as well as the outstanding Eric Roberts. This week you won’t get the podcast that you deserve, but the one that you need so Get to the Podcast and try not to be so serious.
This week’s episode we’re discussing the seminal role of Ryan Phillipe’s career: Mr. Parker in The Way of the Gun.

Get to the Podcast today to find the answers to those questions and more.
This week GTTP has a fever, and the only cure, is more SLY. That’s right we’re revisiting one of our podcast staples Sly Stallone, this time in his 1993 action thriller/therapeutic fear confrontation of heights flick, Cliffhanger. Come listen as we debate the quality of John Lithgow’s accent work, whether Michael Rooker should have been killed in the first 20 minutes and of course, Sly’s gun show.
