About this Episode

Chris and Andre are back to discuss one of the things they disagree about most: James Gunn and the appeal of his films and tv shows.

This conversation was spurred on by a comment left by John Vincent Eugenio on the WHO SUCKS MORE? James Gunn vs. Zack Snyder video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0edF4CaMB4). James couldn't understand why Andre wasn't a fan of James Gunn's creations and left links to a few of HiTop Films' (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDmd40nGOGL3IxKNVeRb9-w) video essays that he felt made his case:

Chris and Andre both watched the video essays and are back to see if anything has changed regarding their feelings on James Gunn.
